Sitting at the very top of the Academy range, the C. Bechstein Academy A228 semi-concert grand piano has an incredible dynamic range, a nimble and elegant touch, and a characteristic balance of warmth and sparkle. It's hard to find a finer piano at this size.

Features of the Bechstein Sound

The C. Bechstein Academy A228 grand piano conceived by C. Bechstein's centre of excellence for research, development and quality assurance in Seifhennersdorf, Saxony. The A228 semi-concert grand piano is a top-class instrument with an impressive sound volume and a professional action made from precious materials in the great tradition, tested by the experienced piano builders at the German headquarters. The use of modern CNC tools permits extremely precise shaping of the individual parts, while critical production steps, such as installing the action and voicing the finished instrument, are left to the hand craftsmanship of expert piano-makers. The A228 semi-concert grand piano enables you to enjoy at home the magic of the great German brand.

Bechstein Vario System Accessory

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.
