With C.Bechstein Vario Duet Silent System

The C. Bechstein Residence R4 Contur upright piano (C. Bechstein Residence 118 piano model being the predecessor) is similar to the R4 Classic cabinet design with only minimal adaptations to the new dimensions. This design has curved edges, lending itself well to any space crying out for some additional elegance. This upright piano has been made in Germany, Seifhennersdorf, Saxony and has been handcrafted to produce a rich and clear sound that perfectly represents its unique melodic shape.

Normally, agraffes are only used on some of the strings but this new piano has an exceptional quality of tone due to agraffes being placed on every string! Other features include a new acoustic body, new scale length, perfectly balanced overtones and rib dimensioning. All these features combined with an optimised soundboard and C.Bechstein hammer heads work together to produce a widely improved dynamic range. The newly developed action and keyboard allows for greater levels of expression and effortless playing. This piano and its fine touch, is perfectly suitable for beginners, music studios and professionals at universities.

The Vario Duet Silent System, is one system, made by C.Bechstein, that can be fitted to any grand or upright pianos within the C. Bechstein or W.Hoffman range.

The piano is muted by using the premium C.Bechstein interposing hammer bar that stops the hammers just before they hit the strings. The main sound is the C.Bechstein Concert D282!

Upstairs delivery:

In the event that your new piano needs to be delivered upstairs we would require pictures and measurements to be emailed into our sales team ([email protected]). We would then calculate an upstairs delivery quotation for you. In some local cases we may request to come and view the access to make sure the piano will fit round tight corners in a staircase.

Home assembly required:

If you have purchased an instrument from our digital piano range and not selected the ‘Premium Delivery Service’ then the instrument will be arriving in a flatpack box and will require self-assembly.

The assembly of most digital pianos will take you around a minimum of 1 hour. We strongly recommend that you have two people present during the assembly. Instructions of assembly will be located inside flatpack box.

Here at Broughton Pianos every instrument is checked by our fully qualified piano technicians before leaving for delivery, this ensures all of customers are 100% satisfied. In the unlikely event of an item being faulty or not suiting the acoustics of room its being kept in we will assess the situation in a neutral manner and reach an agreement to suit all. Broughton Pianos does not accept any returns for unfaulty goods after the statutory period. We use the discretion of our professional piano technicians to determine if an instrument is faulty. If a change of mind occurs we do our best to find an alternative instrument.
