Since building his first piano, Antonin Petrof has gone on to produce around 630,000 instruments under the prestigious Petrof brand name. Over time, production has changed and evolved with the times, but the high-quality craftmanship, precision, meticulous selection of materials and the unchanging romantic sound has endured.
