Both Bechstein and Bosendorfer are around the same price range per length/model, from $25,000 to around $80,000. Â However, in Bechstein, custom work (such as weight of keys, thicker bass, etc.) may cost more. Â For Bosendorfer, extra keys on top of the 88 keys can be added, and it will cost a little more. Â 9-foot concert models will also cost more. Â These piano makers are actually quite honest about their prices for the quality of work they do. Naturlaut
Dear Naturlaut If you haven't already, you ought to read The Piano Shop on the Left Bank: Discovering a Forgotten Passion in a Paris Atelier
by Thaddeus Carhart. It is available in both hardcover and paperback. Whilst the book deals with many themes, the underlying idea is the art of savoring a really fine piano. A wonderful read.
