Width: 154 cm (60¾”)
Height: 102 cm (40″)

Braces

Radiating braces solidify the piano’s structure. Their triangular layout provides more support than parallel designs. This rigid system improves  tuning stability and soundboard crown retention, and lengthens piano life. 4 braces.

Scale

Overstrung; combination of agraffe, with front and rear duplex. Rescaled bass and treble for lower tension scale for increased sustain, better tone clarity, and deeper clearer bass. 18,313 kg (40,374 lb) tension.

Ribs

Made from durable spruce to assure strong and constant support of the strings bearing down on the soundboard. Ribs are fully let-in to the inner rim to support the important soundboard crown and prevent the piano from losing its tone. Number of ribs: 12
