The Hoffmann T128 Upright Piano is a joy to play, with a sensitive, controllable keyboard touch, and a wonderful warm tone from the lowest bass to the highest treble key. The sound is reminiscent of Jazz pianist Bill Evans, expressive and rich. This is the ideal instrument for a jazz pianist or classical player looking for a warm chord voicing.
The 128cm high cabinet affords this instrument longer strings than a more compact upright piano, and therefore a richer bass and warmer treble. As the Tradition series suggests, this piano is manufactured using traditional methods, by craftspeople. It is not a mass produced factory line instrument, it is an individually made musical instrument.
The W. Hoffmann Tradition T128 is a large instrument for pianists who appreciate quality. The agraffes and the sturdy back posts guarantee durability. Handcrafted soundboard and ribs made of solid spruce. Top-quality hammer heads made in Germany, individually selected and voiced by hand.
Manufactured in Europe by craftsmen and craftswomen, by one of the most renowned makers in the world; Bechstein. This is not a mass-produced factory line instrument, this is an individually voiced musical instrument
The W. Hoffmann T128 Upright Piano has a rich and harmonious tone that’s very well balanced. You’ll instantly feel at home when playing it, as the keyboard has a sensitive touch that we can adjust to suit you.
This a truly European instrument, designed by C. Bechstein in Germany and built in the Czech Republic at Bechstein’s facility. At 147cm wide and 128cm tall, it has a wonderful warmth and strength of tone, with subtle mids and highs. When playing chords you’ll notice how the whole instrument sings. The hand crafted spruce soundboard and ribs allow the sound to envelop the player and audience.
As this is part of Hoffmann’s Tradition series, each T128 is given individual attention so that each Piano has the best tone and playability possible. Combining expert workmanship with the latest technology, this is a breath of fresh air in a mass-produced world. This is definitely a Piano for the quality-conscious Pianist, it will be treasured for generations.
Our Piano experts recommend the Hoffmann T128 Piano to any customer who likes the Yamaha U3, but would like a softer, more European tone to match their playing. Our technicians say this Piano is easy to tune and stable once in tune. They particularly like the easy to remove and adjust practice pedal felt strip, and can tell from adjusting the instrument that it was built to last, with solid components to the action and easy access to all points of adjustment.
Remember that as with any of the W.Hoffmann Piano range, we can fit a Bechstein Vario system to the W.Hoffmann T128 so you can play with headphones on! The Bechstein Vario system captures every detail of your playing dynamic and reproduces your performance and practice digitally. The Vario system is designed to be unobtrusive and is available in either black or white. The control panel slides out from under the left hand side of the keybed, giving you a large touchscreen where you can access different instrument sounds, volume controls, recording options and other settings. For those a little more tech-savvy, you can connect your computer, phone or tablet via USB for full MIDI control, or you can use the audio inputs and outputs to either record to an external device or play along with your own choice of MP3s or CDs. If you’d like to add a Vario system to your W.Hoffmann T128, just add it to the basket below or speak to one of our Piano Specialists. If you already have a Hoffmann Piano, it is very possible we’ll be able to fit a Vario System to your existing Piano within a day in your home!
