This top-tier German piano is quite rare in the United States and is in an elite league of pianos. Something that is typical of pianos from Europe is that they each have their distinct tonal characteristics.
The 190 is hand built from the ground up like all August Forsters, and the piano’s sound easily fits into the sound category of semi-concert grand because of the quality of the soundboard and design excellence.
The 190 has a wide tail which makes room for a larger soundboard than typically found in pianos of this size. This produces a broad tonal landscape that is warm and round. The piano maintains an overall sonoric clarity that is typical of the best German pianos. This piano has been lovingly maintained with a beautiful ebony satin finish. The soundboard has excellent crown resulting in a sustained, singing treble. The sound is crisp and clear yet round and warm. The action has been regulated for fluid performance and ease of playing.
This piano is an excellent choice for someone looking for a German piano on the highest order with a massive sound, yet under 7 feet long.
Maintained and tuned. Great Shape for its age and well maintained. Minor wear and tear. Inspected from top to bottom. Only one in this nice of shape for under 40k in the US. Priced to sell fast.
More pictures upon request of any part of the piano.
Here is the post from when I bought the piano 3 years ago with being played. Ultra rare to find in the US.
