 Piano review:- Petrof

Why we stock them:

Petrof Pianos are an elite series of instruments that have a romantic European tone with rich bass, balanced middle, and a twinkling treble voice. We consider them to be one of the finest pianos made in Europe today. We always select our Petrof pianos with the superior Renner-Petrof action which gives better repetition and a smoother feel through the keyboard. With such a fine tone and action response you can feel and communicate a greater level of expression in your music.

Made in the Czech Republic, Petrof pianos come from a long family history of piano making dating back to 1864. The Petrof family have been building these fine European instruments for several generations and now in their fifth, the company is led by Zuzana Ceralova Petrofova.

Petrof pianos are also available in a range of beautiful wood finishes which complement their choice of high-quality woods used in the piano's construction.  

Petrof also produce some fantastically styled pianos from their standard range through to the Special Collection and the flagship series Ant. Petrof. With this level of innovation and design together with the truly superb tonal quality, Petrof have become a real piano connoisseurs' company.

With each piano the company provides a certificate of European Excellence which was awarded to the company in 2007. This confirms their European origin and the highest quality construction materials. In addition, Petrof are ISO 9001:2016 and 14001:2016 certified, indicating a constantly high standard of production and services, and leading environmental management of the companies' impact and resources.

Petrof recently celebrated their 155th anniversary and opened the Petrof Gallery, which along with their museum and factory tours is well worth a visit. Their comprehensive website is also full of history, photos, and dedications from professional musicians.

Key Features

In order to produce such a rich and delicate tone Petrof use the highest quality woods and manufacturing standards in their production and their certification is testament to this. The pianos themselves have many key features including quality Roslau German strings and the upright models include agraffes (string location guides in the top bridge) for improved scale, a feature which is usually only found on grand pianos. (Image left: Tuning pins, agraffes and strgings. Image right: Slow fall keyboard)

We always choose the Renner - Petrof actions which use Renner parts and give better repetition and smoothness to the feel of the piano keys which we think perfectly matches the special tone of the piano. (Image left: Renner-Petrof Action. Image right: Frame, soundboard and bridge)
