But what does small mean? The 170CS model weighs 314 kilograms and has dimensions of 146 x 170 centimeters. A formidable presence.
This piano is built by hand using the highest-quality materials. The sound quality in the bass, in particular, and the range of tonal colors are exceptional for a piano of this size. Its action allows the fastest of repetitions and it has a very precise playing feel.
The 170CS model is designated as Conservatory Series. Only certain sizes typically used in conservatory settings are chosen for the CS series, 170CS, 185CS, 200CS & 214CS. All CS models are finished in matte black and share additional cosmetic distinctions. These are the open music desk, a slant bevel on the front keyslip and a soft-round bevel on the lid. The construction and performance standards are identical to non-CS models.
And the most beautiful thing of all: it is a Bösendorfer.
