We are proud to announce that during June/July 2017 Phoenix Pianos will complete its 40th commercial build piano with carbon fibre soundboard.
Our latest instrument is destined for a prestigious new UK venue. Plans are in hand to achieve a target number of over fifty carbon fibre soundboard pianos by Christmas 2017. Meanwhile our pianos with these soundboards are now making fine music in all continents of the World.
The sound quality of these very special pianos is astonishing for its power, immediacy and exceptionally long sustain. For those who wish to make their own judgement, please click here to listen to recent Phoenix piano video recordings of Chopin, Scarlatti, Rachmaninoff and Balakirev. (We suggest with high quality speakers or headphones.)
Most of these pianos are fitted with WNG carbon fibre / composite actions which, like the soundboards, are highly resistant to adverse climate conditions. All incorporate the patented Phoenix bridge agraffes that enable elimination of the clamping and restrictive down bearing load of the strings on the soundboard. Down bearing in other builds of piano can cause the eventual collapse of the soundboard crown and loss of premium performance. This can occur within 5 to 50 years, according to robustness of build.
