What we think of the Bluthner e-Klavier2 digital piano
Bluthner's e-Klavier2 digital piano is made in Leipzig, Germany alongside their range of world famous acoustic grand and upright piano models, and is completely designed and manufactured in Europe. With most digital pianos now made in Indonesia this makes the Bluthner range rather unique! The e-Klavier2 is the mid-range model, sharing the impressive action and piano sample of the top of the range e-Klavier3 but without the large LCD display and a smaller amplification system. Despite the more basic amplification setup this piano still packs a punch and makes for a great alternative to a Yamaha CLP575, this having the advantage of a real acoustic piano cabinet. It offers an impressive 20 track record facility, soundboard behaviour modelling and 2 x 50 watt amplification system and is a very capable instrument indeed.

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.The sound:
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. Specification
