The C. Bechstein Millenium 116 K is a highly successful upright piano, winner of several international design awards. Made from the finest materials available, the Millenium 116 has excellent musicality and incomparable quality; an instrument both classical and modern.
The Millenium 116 from C.Bechstein uses only the finest materials; the Grade 3+ Ciresa soundboard comes from Italy, but is then finished and shaped by C. Bechstein in Germany. Every other component is designed and produced especially for the C. Bechstein range. The natural materials are prepared in climate controlled conditions before being shaped by master craftsmen and craftswomen.
The frames for the C.Bechstein Millenium 116 is cast using a traditional process in a sand mould at more than a thousand degrees Celsius, resulting in a plate which has a high carbon content which in turn has a positive influence on the natural resonant frequencies of the metal.
The strings in the Millenium 116 are manufactured by C.Bechstein in their Czech Republic factory, to exacting standards Each bass string is wrapped with copper by highly skilled craftsmen such as Maik Ebermann who has been with Bechstein since 1997.
The cabinet which holds everything together is built by master craftsmen with a very holistic approach. Every element is combined perfectly to create a single instrument. The action is regulated and voiced by master technicians to the precise needs of the individual Piano.
Our Piano Specialists say that like the Classic 118, the C.Bechstein Millenium 116 has an absolutely fantastic touch and response, which is particularly noticeable at lower dynamics. Despite being one of the smaller instruments in the C.Bechstein range of uprights, it has an incredible bass tone and response for such a small instrument. It’s hard to believe how good this instrument sounds until you hear it.
Our Piano Technicians say that the Millenium 116 is an incredibly impressive upright Piano of the highest standards. The quality of build and components like walnut hammers are all second to none.
Remember that as with any of the C.Bechstein Piano range, we can fit a Vario system to the Millenium 116 so you can play with headphones on! The Bechstein Vario system captures every detail of your playing dynamic and reproduces your performance and practice digitally. The Vario system is designed to be unobtrusive and is available in either black or white. The control panel slides out from under the left hand side of the keybed, giving you a large touchscreen where you can access different instrument sounds, volume controls, recording options and other settings. For those a little more tech-savvy, you can connect your computer, phone or tablet via USB for full MIDI control, or you can use the audio inputs and outputs to either record to an external device or play along with your own choice of MP3s or CDs. If you’d like to add a Vario system to your C.Bechstein Millenium 116, just add it to the basket below or speak to one of our Piano Specialists.
