The AUGUST FÖRSTER instruments are completely hand made which is rare compared to other piano manufacturers worldwide. Only the highest quality materials are used. The legs, music stands and lyras for the pedals are custom carved from wood. The posts for the grand pianos are reinforced and different parts are connected with wood dowels. The bass strings are wound by hand and the iron frame is prepared by hand. Each instrument is an individual product of art and has the unique "AUGUST FÖRSTER Sound".
