A special surface selected by you makes your piano unique and individual. You have the choice between many different types of surface. Various premium woods, we can easily make a piano for you to match an existing wood sample or according to your personal taste.
GROTRIAN premium woods (Selection)
There are moments when silence is more important than the excellent sound of a GROTRIAN. This is why all GROTRIAN pianos can be equipped with the GROTRIAN acoustics digital-piano. A special silent rail is fitted in the action to separate the action from the acoustical system. The silent mode is activated by a small hand-lever beneath the keyboard.
The sampling is executed by an optical system which is mounted under the keys. This means there is no mechanical connection and thereby no change in the levers of the action. Finally the touch of a GROTRIAN is not influenced by the Silent-system.
The optically generated signals get digitalised and are then processed into MIDI. The control unit contains AUX, USB and MIDI connection.
Only Grotrian installs the Silent System so that it can, if required, be completely removed. Neither the installation nor the removal damages other components of the instrument, for example the soundboard.
A little quieter please. There is no problem to do this as we can fit a moderator to any model of Grotrian upright pianos. A felt strip is moved between strings and hammer heads to reduce the volume of sound. For operating you can choose between manual moderator, Bowden wire and pedal operated moderator.
Model College, Classic and Concertino can be equipped with a sostenuto pedal.
This pedal keeps the dampers of selected keys lifted and therefore allows the dampers of the other strings to be pedalled normally; the dampers of the selected notes stay lifted until the pedal is deactivated.
If you opt for a sostenuto pedal it is not possible to fit the same piano with a moderator.
We are convinced that every school should be equipped with a quality piano. To help keep the piano in proper condition the school version includes a lockable fallboard and lid, two handlebars and ball bearing mounted full rubber wheels.
All these parts are available separately and can be re-fitted at any time.
The detail makes the difference. That is why all Grotrian pianos can be trimmed with chrome matt or gloss fittings instead of the standard brass. The legs are available in different styles too. Your local Grotrian dealer will be pleased to give you detailed information about this.
The models Chippendale, Rococo, Louis Quinze and Empire are elegant. Lavish wood carvings and details as well as premium woods let the pianos shine as in bye-gone days.
Clara Schumann was a special Grotrian lover. She took her piano with her to every venue. The special CS Clara Schumann model Grotrian not only bows down before this great pianist but it celebrates the timeless elegance of the golden age of piano making in the 19th century.
All Grotrian instruments are equipped with key tops made of white acrylic glass PMMA, polished and imbued. The black keys are made of semi gloss artificial resin. Regarding their touch, both materials are similar to ebony and ivory. Nevertheless ebony and ivory are available; ask your local Grotrian dealer for prices.
