An AUGUST FÖRSTER instrument consists of more than 12,000 individual parts assembled with extreme precision by our master craftsmen and -women. The manufacturing process takes months and involves many thousands of steps, some of which include tips and tricks passed down through the generations. The result is a masterfully crafted instrument of the finest quality, harmonious in design and sound.
Since 1859, we have been gathering experience and refining our understanding of the desired diversity of sounds, different styles of playing, and dynamics of the keystrokes; we infuse those many decades of expertise into the soul of AUGUST FÖRSTER instruments, allowing them to convey the individual styles of renowned players and imbuing the instruments with value that grows over time.
From our little parlor grands to our concert grand pianos, all of our instruments are hand-crafted with the same passion for detail.
