Our company has a range of high-quality grand pianos from various traditional brands. This instrument has been well maintained for studio recording and regularly serviced by the finest world-class concert technicians. Förster is a traditional German brand with over 150 years of history known among musicians and specialists as first-class German quality. Recently, in October 2021, the grand piano was restored in his factory by our master piano builder with around 40 years of experience. All parts have been disassembled, adjusted, serviced, and renewed. Strings, hammerheads, strings, and dampers have been renewed. The instrument has also received a fresh coat of paint. Soundboard has been repainted. The instrument sounds like new with a modern standard stage sound characteristic. The basses sound very harmonious in the overtones, in contrast to the smaller instruments such as saloons or supporting grand pianos. Förster has always been one of the top brands for 150 years. In terms of quality, Förster is convincing in the network of piano builders and pianists. Förster currently builds under 150 hand-made, finely crafted instruments every year. This example is almost identical to the current 215 models in terms of construction.
The instrument is very vocal.
