Although not widely known in the UK, Petrof are Europe’s 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 our 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 Storm model is of a size and quality to satisy the most demanding of pianists and, in our opinion, an optimal size for home use.

The Storm is true to its name, being the piano with the greatest sound potential of the whole Standard Series. It imprints a deep emotional experience within the pianist, and in the hearts of the listeners, that often cannot be put into words. The uniqueness of the moment will strike you as soon as you hear the first sounds coming from this the largest piano in the Standard Series. Its versatility builds bridges across musical genres. It is popular with a demanding clientele and colleges of music, as well as for musical performances at smaller halls and functions.
