With its pleasant touch, its beautiful timbre and its well-balanced voice in all registers, this instrument will increase your playing pleasure. The excellent processing just goes to show that C. Bechstein Europe is an exception on the global market when it comes to offering quality pianos at an affordable price. Thanks to its solidity and rich musicality, this baby grand is particularly suitable for intensive use in a conservatory — or your private music room.

The W.Hoffmann T 161 baby grand piano in the Tradition series stands out for its harmonious and well-balanced European sound that is the result of a synthesis between state-of-the-art technology, the traditional working out of the action and the manual voicing of the hammerheads. The excellent action assembly enables you to interpret any work subtly and master pianissimo and fortissimo passages alike. Moreover, this baby grand boasts a highly differentiated voice.

The absolute exception among European piano manufacturers

The W.Hoffmann T 161 model is made in the Czech Republic by C. Bechstein Europe’s skilled technicians under the supervision of the C. Bechstein Germany managers. This synergy of expertise is unique in Europe. Take a guided tour of the production site located in Hradec Králové (a Czech city formerly called Königgrätz) and you’ll be amazed by the state-of-the-art technical equipment and the staff’s commitment to making good instruments: highly trained piano-makers have had the European sound philosophy in their blood for generations and know how to make pianos with just the right sound. The staff members contributed to the development of the new production site and are proud of their company’s success. Unlike other piano manufacturers, C. Bechstein Europe doesn’t import foreign expertise — and offers a five-year warranty for the W.Hoffmann Tradition T 161 baby grand piano.
