Model range : Straight Strung Grand Pianos in different sizes

Since many of the feedback received from both professionals and audience is so positive, Chris Maene decided to conceive a full family of straight strung grand pianos.

Apart from the Concert Grand CM284, the factory produces its smaller version, the Parlor Grand CM228, and a particular Chamber Music Concert Grand CM250 version.

The Chamber Music Concert Grand CM//250

The Chamber Music Concert Grand CM//250 is specifically inspired by the best straight strung grand pianos of the 1860’s, such as Bechstein, Blu╠łthner, Pleyel or Erard.

A more delicate design, a thinner rim and in sound referring even more to the glorious instruments of the end of the 19th century, make this model perfectly suited for chamber music, smaller concert halls and private collections.
