Custom 200 grand piano

venables & son custom 200 grand piano

The touch is precise, responsive and balanced. The tone has a particular singing quality that, in the treble register, adopts a delicate percussive bell-like characteristic. The bass is pure and rounded, with minimal inharmonicity. The mid range has a mystical, dark quality. Ideally suited to the pianist with a preference for a subtle, mellow tone.

Quality continues with a high standard of finishing: the superbly elegant cabinet features a contrasting polished birds-eye maple finish to the inner rim.

The red-beech capped vertically laminated (maple) bridge is engineered to provide the most efficient and consistent conduction of string resonance to the soundboard, whilst achieving a rounded, sonorous tone.
