What we think of the Bluthner e-Grand Concert digital piano
As the big brother of the new e-Grand Studio digital baby grand piano, e new e-Grand Concert features a larger and more elegant cabinet design with a beautifully veneered soundboard and more powerful speaker system. Both instruments share their sound engine, record facility and user interface with the e-Klavier3 but the BOSE speaker system puts them in a different league altogether! Its sound is powerful, rich and resonant with an rumbling bass and a clear treble - just like the Model 1 concert grand it is sampled from. With a built in Bluetooth receiver the e-Grand Concert can also become a high quality Hi-Fi system - you can stream your music via Bluetooth through the piano and even play along! The new e-Grand Concert is available in black satin, polished ebony or polished white finishes and would be a wonderful addition to any home, restaurant, hotel or performance space.
Acoustic piano simulation:
Bluthner has developed a unique approach to sound modelling that allows the e-Klavier to reproduce the advanced harmonics of the acoustic instrument. These sounds are further supported by effects such as Aliquot String Resonance Modelling, Harmonic Damper Modelling and reverb for a more natural sound.
Harmonic Damper Modelling:
The interplay between the tone and the dampers of an acoustic piano is a delicate relationship. With the advanced Harmonic Damper Modelling of a Bluthner e-Klavier digital piano one can hear the sound of the dampers lifting off the strings and control how much dampening takes place mid-note.
When Bluthner envisioned the simulation of a Bluthner Model 1 concert grand in digital format, preserving the warmth of the Golden Tone was paramount. The sampling was done in Leipzig, Germany with a new modelling technique designed by Bluthner. It is the crown of a stunning library of first generation piano sound samples produced through Bluthner APS technology.
Bluthner Grand Touch Mechanik:
Developed to render the most versatile nuances, the e-Klavier features a well balanced and quick natural wooden key action with synthetic ivory keytops. The feel of the heavier bass hammers of an acoustic piano that lighten up through the treble are recreated in a 4 zone graded hammer design. This action design also simulates the feeling of escapement and after touch.
