The Hoffmann T128 Upright Piano is a joy to play, with a sensitive, controllable keyboard touch, and a wonderful warm tone from the lowest bass to the highest treble key. The sound is reminiscent of Jazz pianist Bill Evans, expressive and rich. This is the ideal instrument for a jazz pianist or classical player looking for a warm chord voicing.
The 128cm high cabinet affords this instrument longer strings than a more compact upright piano, and therefore a richer bass and warmer treble. As the Tradition series suggests, this piano is manufactured using traditional methods, by craftspeople. It is not a mass produced factory line instrument, it is an individually made musical instrument.
