Although not widely known in the UK, Petrof are Europes largest piano manufacturer. They are also the number one selling European piano in USA. Petrof are a Czech company dating back to 1864. Unlike so many other makers, they are still fully in the hands of the Petrof family. A true family business headed up by Suzanna Petrof, they produce superb European pianos. Because they are not manufacturing in Germany, this makes their pianos significantly more affordable. Indeed, well-known German piano makers are migrating production to the Czech Republic in an attempt to keep costs down.
At Yorkshire Pianos we have been selling Petrof for over twenty years and know their pianos inside out. We have visited their factory many times (an impressive facility surrounded by beautiful countryside) and been overwhelmingly impressed by their production methods and standards. Because we tune and look after the pianos year-on-year after selling them, we know that they are totally reliable, keep their tuning exceptionally well and increase in value over time.
The Bora is the baby grand of the Petrof range and is remarkable for its warmth of tone and active presence making it a choice for those wanting the advantages of a smaller grand with no compromise in tone quality.
From the Petrof website…
Size is the only thing that makes the Bora a small instrument. As soon as the hammers hit the strings, you will discover the wonderfully rich and surprisingly powerful sound. The very best materials, technology and design features of concert instruments are employed in its construction. Potential greatly transcends actual size. Suitable for all levels up to professional players.
