We have proved many times that thanks to their quality these models can gratify even the most discerning musician.

This is a further cause for us to celebrate the growing popularity of PETROF uprights in the world.

Petrof

Petrof is currently the largest producer of acoustic grand and upright pianos in Europe. It trades in 5 continents and exports to over 65 countries the world over. Since 1864, when Antonín Petrof built his first piano, they have produced under the PETROF name roughly 630,000 instruments and many others within the PETROF Brand Family. Their pianos are popular among musicians above all for their unusually soft, gentle, rounded and romantic tone. Over the decades of their production much has changed, but precise work by hand, careful selection of materials and the unchanging romantic sound endure. Countless famous performers and well-known personalities have fallen in love with PETROF instruments, and the representatives of the fifth generation proudly continue in their honorable trade and family tradition.

European Excellence

Today the whole musical world knows the top quality instruments from the Hradec Králové factory. For this very reason, PETROF has gained a host of awards – from the King George Medal of the London Exhibition, through the Grand Prix of Paris, Barcelona, and Brussels, to the title „Family Silver“, and Czech Goodwill 2015. All instruments are also marked with the seal of European Excellence, which attests the European origin and the quality of the construction materials.
