Bluthner is a German brand that produces high-quality grand pianos in Leipzig. Although the company was nationalized in 1972, it remained under the management of the Bluthner family and became the largest piano manufacturer in Europe. Unfortunately, the factory was bombed during World War II. After the war, the East German government allowed the Bluthner family to rebuild the plant. After the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, the company returned to the hands of the Bluthner family.

Bluthner – is it worth buying a grand piano from this brand?

Definitely yes! Bluthner pianos are characterized by an exceptionally light tone that is both rich and sparkling. These instruments are valued for their clarity and warm, rich tones. Christian Bluthner describes them as "creating a dark, chocolaty sound with shimmering high tones."

How much is a Bluthner grand piano worth?

Since the company was founded in the 19th century, Bluthner has focused on the longevity of its instruments. These grand pianos are designed to be passed down from generation to generation, and the Bluthner family has adhered to the same traditions for about 160 years. A long-lasting instrument will always maintain its good sound, making the purchase of a Bluthner grand piano a worthwhile investment.

Bluthner offers a wide price range for its instruments, from around a thousand to over forty thousand euros. This allows everyone, from beginner pianists to experienced musicians, to find something for themselves.

How are Bluthner instruments made?

Bluthner soundboards are made from spruce wood sourced from the Alps, carefully prepared for this purpose. The trees are cut and aged for 10 years, after which the wood is quarter-sawn, and the best boards are selected for piano production.

Bluthner grand pianos feature several unique technical characteristics. The notes in the highest soprano section (about the top two octaves) have four strings instead of three. The additional string is slightly raised above the others. The effect is mainly heard in medium and forte playing. Simply put, this technique adds color and enhances the singing quality of the high tones.

Another characteristic feature is the angled hammers, which may look unusual at first glance but have a more complex application. They are cut at an angle and mounted straight on the shanks, allowing them to better align with the string line. Typically, hammers are cut straight and mounted at an angle. According to the manufacturers, this solution allows for an almost perfectly even distribution of striking force, resulting in an even hammer line.
