What we think of the Bluthner HomeLine digital piano
We really like the new Bluthner HomeLine digital piano. The sound quality is superb and its action is realistic and responsive - it sounds and feels like a Bluthner grand piano! It is packed full of features including a MP3 and .wav audio record facility, Bluetooth turns your piano into a super powerful speaker system (you can play along with your favourite tracks too!) and its 150 built in sounds are all editable through Bluthner's intuitive 4 zone performance mode. The slimline and minimalistic case design allows the HomeLine to double up as a desk or sideboard when not used as a piano making it ideal for those at university or with limited space. It comes in a beautiful solid beech cabinet which is waxed and oiled, or a modern looking satin ebony or rosewood veneer finish. If you have a specific colour scheme or need to match your piano to a specific piece of furniture, let us know as Bluthner love a challenge and will do it!

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.
