  • This lovely handcrafted German piano had one owner, who purchased it new from Chris Finger Pianos in Niwot, CO. It was built by the Feurich Piano Company in what was East Germany at the time. The Communist government had given the rights to the Feurich name (dating well back into the 1800's) to the Bechstein Piano Company in East Berlin. It took a number of years after the fall of the Berlin Wall for Julius Feurich, the current (5th generation) owner of the Feurich Company, to re-acquire his family name for the company. Thus this is a Feurich design, built in the Feurich factory but using the Hoffman name. This piano has been lovingly cared for and lightly played. It is a wonderfully musical bargain!
"What do I think about my new piano? Words like speechless, stunning, and a variety of expletive laden superlatives fail to convey my feelings. As a musician in the trenches, I have played a lot of pianos, and in shopping for a piano I tried several dozen. Not only does this piano exceed anything I have ever played--upright or grand below 5'10"--for responsiveness of action and tone, it just about makes up for every dog actioned, no crown, untuneable factory second piece of unburnt firewood ever foisted upon me as the source of my income for the evening. What a piano! My oh my oh my, what a piano!"
