The Magic of a Bösendorfer
The Bösendorfer piano manufactory is not only the oldest one within the premium segment – the prestigious company dates back to 1828 – but all the Bösendorfer Grands also share distinct and fundamental features in the way they are crafted. It is safe to say that Bösendorfer are obsessed with crafting the ultimate piano sound experience. This difference to other brands results in the unique Bösendorfer DNA, the warm yet brilliantly colourful sound of a Bösendorfer instrument. Whether you play the Grand Uprights, Grand Pianos or Concert Grands, each instrument is crafted with utmost care and dedication by the hands of our Bösendorfer Artisans.
Handcrafted in Austria
Bösendorfer Grands are not just an object of investment but of value that will last more than one generation. The skilled Bösendorfer Artisans reveal the inner beauty of the Bösendorfer sound, unique in colour, dynamics and expression. It takes the dedication of the Bösendorfer Artisans up to a year to build your Bösendorfer Grand. A personal touch that you will sense the moment you play. Austrian quality, Viennese soul.

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, 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 most precise adjustment in the upper register guaranteeing the original Bösendorfer Sound for generations.
Traditional Sand Cast
Bösendorfer uses the traditional sand casting to forge the frame. The raw frames, produced in Austria, rest 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 carefully engraved by master artisans: Anything is possible. An instrument as extraordinary as you are.
