Comments on this make
Prolific maker of top quality uprights and grands mostly made 1890 to 1930. Bechstein upright Models I to V often suffer from central heating and need new pin-blocks. *Post 1902 upright models 6 to 10 are very well made and have a rich tone. Modern ones are good but varied. Please see our separate Bechstein pianos page for more information.
