Bosendorfer Model 120
The Bosendorfer 120 upright piano is an excellent example of Bosendorfer innovation. The company has transformed its expert craftsmanship and design of their grand pianos and transferred them into the 120 upright piano. The result is an impressively rich, clear and beautifully sounding instrument. Its tone is powerful and precise, with a dark, warm sound that is typical of a Bosendorfer piano. The Bosendorfer 120 is handcrafted by the artisans of the company using only the finest grand piano grade materials. Its smaller size in no way limits its projection or resonance, as this model will thrill even the most discerning pianists.

What you should know about Bosendorfer 120 Upright Piano
The Bosendorfer 120 upright piano is considered to be the small brother of Bosendorfer 130 CL, but smaller does not mean any compromise in quality. It has taken a great deal from its big brother: for instance, the long keys and the classic console design. Compact in size, it uses the same construction principles as the 130. The result is a piano with unique dimensions and a great, inspiring sound.
With excellent responsiveness, the Bosendorfer 120 features an action with longer keys for optimised touch and handling, for greater artistic expression. Its unique Bosendorfer bass strings are carefully spun for that warm, sonorous bass that makes this model so popular. What is unique about Bosendorfer is that each piano is fitted with an independent Capo d’Astro in the upper register, which assures the most precise adjustment, ensuring the powerful sound for generations to come.
There is also the option to purchase this model with the Sound Release System, which ensures a much greater openness and fullness of sound.
The Bosendorfer 120’s sophisticated and simplistic design is a sight to behold. This classic and traditional upright piano is not only available in polished ebony, but can also be purchased in a range of different wood finishes to suit all preferences.
