At 208cm (6'10") in length, the C.Bechstein Academy A208 has the perfect balance between bass and treble registers, with a warm, graceful tone that is full of vibrancy and colour. A beautiful instrument for any environment.
The C. Bechstein Academy A208 parlour grand piano is suitable for all styles of music and for solo performances and chamber music concerts alike. It boasts a stunning dynamic range and a wealth of nuances and stands out for its incredibly balanced and precise action. Such high-quality characteristics at an accessible price make it easy to see why this model is coveted by conservatories the world over.
As with all instruments in the series, selection of materials is crucial to acheive the balanced, singing tone that you would expect from an Academy A208. For example, back posts are made from high-quality pinewood, ribs and sounding board from tonewood (mountain spruce). Other body parts consist of sturdily glued solid wood with corresponding veneer seals. The high-end iron plate of the Academy A208 is cast in the sand to achieve an excellent resistance to tension and thus optimise the keynote. The capo bar and the duplex scaling integrated with the plate contribute to the piano's rich and colourful voice, while special agraffes limit the speaking length of the middle and bass strings. Last but not least, both the strings and the tuning pins are made of the finest materials.
The Bechstein Vario System is a digital mute that captures every detail of your playing dynamically transforming your acoustic piano into a digital instrument, empowering you to perform without disturbing anyone. Designed to be unobtrusive the control panel slides out from under the left-hand side of the keyboard, giving you a large touchscreen where you can access different instrument sounds, volume controls, recording options and other settings.
