Perfectly Balanced For Best Tonal Results
The Minster Upright Piano features an excellent weight, feel and sound that is suitable for home, school and concert use. The piano includes Japanese wool felt hammers that have a soft core wrapped around the main hammer. Combining this with German Roslau strings, the sound is pure and full of character. Great care has been taken in the selection of the German hornbeam tone woods, which make the resonant sound throughout the piano uniformed and focused. The 120cm high frame gives a bold and colourful tone to the music, as well as a fantastic projection, even when the top lid is closed.
Perfectly Weighted Key Bed
A fundamental part of piano manufacture is making sure that the key bed is perfectly balanced for the most diverse possible performance. The key bed on this piano is sublime, allowing sufficient weight to allow for great tone and precision at quiet volumes, and a light enough touch to give ultimate dexterity in complicated passages of music and trills. Expert technicians and painstaking design mean that the keys pivot at exactly the right point to counteract for the weight of the hammers, without allowing for any discrepancy in feel between black and white keys.
Elegant and Contemporary Body
The Minster Upright Piano has been tastefully designed with a contemporary twist on a classical design. A set of complex curved combined with sleek and straight edges makes this modern piano stand out. The piano has a number of easy methods to change timbre and projection, simply by adjusting the top lid height or by removing the front panel completely. The metal parts have been chromed to give a stunning modern look.
