Bösendorfer Pianos

The Magic of a Bosendorfer Pianos

Bösendorfer is the oldest piano manufacturer within the premium segment.

This prestigious company dates back to 1828, yet to this day all Bösendorfer grands share the same fundamental features in the way they are crafted. It’s this devotion to detail that separates them from other brands and results in the unique Bösendorfer DNA – a warm yet brilliantly colourful sound.

Whether you play the Bösendorfer concert grand or a grand upright, each instrument is crafted with utmost care and dedication at the hands of Bösendorfer artisans.

Handcrafted in Austria

Austria’s only remaining piano manufacturer, it is the enduring quality of Bosendorfer pianos that ensures they are not just an object of investment but of value.

A process that refuses to be rushed – it takes skilled artisans up to 6 years to craft a Bösendorfer grand – it is this dedication that reveals the inner beauty of the Bosendorfer pianos’ sound, unique in colour, dynamics, and expression. A personal touch and a sense of quality that you will sense from the moment you begin to play.

With an instrument from this piano powerhouse, you can expect generations of enjoyment. Austrian quality, Viennese soul.

Our Bösendorfer Pianos

What makes a Bösendorfer so special?

Naturally Wood

The basis of each Bösendorfer Grand is spruce that is naturally dried by air and has proven to be the ideal tone wood. At Bösendorfer they use more than 80% of spruce tone wood building their instruments, which is more than any other manufacturer. The Austrian spruce has to be grown at a minimum of 800 meters above sea level, guaranteeing a very dense and regular grain structure. When you add the natural drying process to our manufacturing time, it actually takes 6 years until the Bösendorfer Grand arrives at your doorstep.

Hand Spun Bass

All bass strings are spun in the unique Bösendorfer way. A steel core string is the basis for 1 or 2 layers of copper. The carefully spun strings are a substantial element of the warm and sonorous Bösendorfer bass.

Independent Capo d’Astro

Bösendorfer is the only piano manufacturer that applies a detachable and independent Capo d’Astro in the upper register. This is how they assure the most precise adjustment in the upper register, guaranteeing the original Bösendorfer sound for generations.

Traditional Sand Cast

Bösendorfer uses traditional sand casting to forge the frame. The raw frames, produced in Austria, rest for 6 months outside the factory. This is how all inner tensions of the forging process are released allowing the frame to remain relaxed under 20 tons of string tension. Pure stability.

Your Imagination Built

The exclusive production of close to 300 instruments per year allows Bösendorfer to meet your individual requests. Whether you would like to apply precious veneers, your favourite colour or an emblem designed by yourself and carefully engraved by master artisans – anything is possible. A Bösendorfer instrument as extraordinary as you are.

    Richard Lawson's service was wonderful throughout the process. Colin was super responsive and helpful, even on the weekend, resulting in my delivery of a Yamaha with brand-new silent system in a week. Delivery was also very efficient … More despite stairs and narrow corridors.

    I wanted a Yamaha C6. I saw one on eBay. I worried about its state as an eBay item but found it was being sold by Richard Lawson Pianos, it was also on their website with many other pianos. I checked as many reviews as I could find about … More this company and found them hugely positive. That gave me the confidence I needed to make contact by email. Richard responded promptly. A visit to the showroom would have been difficult for me at this time and after a few emails between us I accepted Richard’s assurance that the piano was excellent. I decided to buy the C6. It was delivered by a team of three people who were clearly experienced in moving pianos as it had to come a circuitous route into the house; another happy experience as they were also good people to deal with. Richard spoke truly – it is an excellent Yamaha C6. A good piano is an expensive purchase. If you want value for money and a pain free experience, choose Richard Lawson Pianos.

  • Ivan Tang ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Richard spent a lot of time helping me pick out the right piano for me. All I needed to do was tell him my exact specification for what I was looking for, and he quickly came up with a shortlist of possible pianos. He also replied to emails … More promptly. He didn't rush me, and allowed me to come and visit multiple times to try out different pianos as they came into the showroom. The showroom is also very nice (the only criticism is that it is slightly difficult to find), with a huge range of pianos. The delivery crew were also efficient and accommodating. I don't foresee changing pianos for a long time, but I would go back to Richard Lawson, and recommend to any friend.

    I have been aware of Shigeru Kawai pianos since Florian Mitrea told me about them two years ago. I took the opportunity to hear Ashley Fripp play one at Richard Lawson’s piano studio last November. It was wonderful. I hesitated about … More buying one because I thought we did not have room for one. I visited RL again on 28th February and chose an SK2. It was delivered on 6 March. The two men were extremely prompt and efficient. We were so impressed. The piano is magnificent with such a beautiful sound and action and a joy to play. My one regret is that I waited so long.
