Bechstein Upright Pianos

If you’re looking for a high-quality, reliable piano that offers a pure yet uniquely colourful and warm sound – you need a Bechstein upright piano.

Handmade in Germany, the Bechstein collection has been in production since 1863 and is in a class of its own.


Different Bechstein upright piano models

The Bechstein Upright Concert and Residence range is the premier collection of upright pianos offered by Bechstein.

Delivering intense tonal colours and a sound that is as complex as it is pure, these impressive instruments are made using only the very finest parts and finely honed craftsmanship.

Available at a more competitive price is the Bechstein Academy range. Whilst more pocket-friendly, with a piano from this collection you can be confident of not sacrificing quality. Uprights from the Academy range have a very poetic tone, but are slightly mellower than Residence models.

Usually more compact in design, they are a great option if space and budget are a concern.

Although not intended for concert halls, a Bechstein upright piano from the Academy range can still fulfil the needs of professional and amateur players alike. Built to endure, they can withstand the rigours of regular use and are ideal for small music halls and intimate venues.


What does a Bechstein upright piano offer?

Whether from the Academy or Residence range, with a Bechstein upright piano you can expect consistent quality.

They offer:

  • A sophisticated, dynamic range
  • Quality craftsmanship
  • Excellent durability
  • High-quality tuning pins – meaning you’ll benefit from exceptional tuning stability
  • Value for money


Zimmermann pianos

If you’re exploring Bechstein, Zimmermann pianos – and how they fit into the Bechstein upright piano range – can cause some confusion. Allow us to explain…

Zimmermann pianos are also known as the Bechstein S-series, which are the entry-level piano in the Bechstein upright collection.

The S-series models are designed by Bechstein in Germany, but completed by the Hailun piano factory in China. This keeps manufacturing costs down whilst allowing the master technicians at Bechstein to retain a close eye on quality.

The S-Series offers a warmth of tone and dynamic range unrivalled by other manufacturers at this price point.
