What you should know about Bosendorfer 130 Upright Piano
Many believe that the Bösendorfer Model 130CL sounds like a grand piano. Many are also convinced that it is simply the best upright piano in the world. Bösendorfer has transferred its craftsmanship and sound philosophy from grand pianos into this piano and the action is setup with great precision to ensure the best possible playability and responsiveness of touch. All Bosendorfer uprights are made, voiced and tuned by the same craftsmen, who help give their grand pianos their unique sound and power of expressiveness. The Bosendorfer 130 upright piano is built with such care and detail, that it takes Bosendorfer Austrian artisans up to a year to make. With all the finest components typical of a grand piano, the 130 upright piano is grand piano grade, but in the form of an upright.
The Bosendorfer 130 offers a deep, rich and powerful tone that is both clear, and resonating. Equipped with the darker, warm sound that is typical of a Bosendorfer, this piano is a pleasure to hear, and to see. With much longer keys, this model provides a much greater response for the pianist’s enjoyment and expression, and the most masterful play. In addition, when any note is played on this piano, the integrated spruce components become acoustically active, for a much more resonating body, and greater projection.
The rich tone and excellent sound of the Bosendorfer is legendary, and this piano proves it. With its unique bass strings, the 130 upright piano exemplifies the sonorous sound of the Bosendorfer bass, along with its independent Capo d’Astro for precise adjustment, and a long lasting sound that will last for generations.
