The GP160 is one of the most outstanding baby grand pianos on the market today. It has an impressively deeper and stronger bass than is normally expected out of a piano of this size, and gorgeous, sustaining mids and trebles that resemble a mid 5' piano. It achieves this through its square tail and exquisite, effective placement of the bass bridge. For those who are in search of a small piano but a large, beautiful sound, the Perzina GP160 must be considered. This instrument can satisfy up to a strong, advanced level pianist.
This specific piano has a gorgeous walnut gloss finish, and Queen Anne style legs.
A new line of Perzina grand pianos was introduced in 2011, designed and manufactured by Perzina in cooperation with a major European manufacturer. All contain veneered soundboards of Austrian white spruce, duplex scaling, and Abel hammers, among other high-quality components. All models come with a slow-close fallboard, and an adjustable artist bench. The distributor says that each grand is unpacked in the U.S., inspected, and adjusted as necessary before being shipped to the dealer.
The company's European headquarters says it ships many European materials to Yantai, including Degen copper-wound and RÖslau strings, Delignit pinblocks, Renner and Abel hammers, English felts, European veneers, and Austrian white spruce soundboards. New manufacturing equipment is from Germany, Japan, and Italy. According to the company, all the piano designs are the original German scales.
The Gebr. Perzina (Perzina Bros.) piano company was established in the German town of Schwerin in 1871, and was a prominent piano maker until World War I, after which its fortunes declined. In more recent times, the factory was moved to the nearby city of Lenzen and the company became known as Pianofabrik Lenzen GmbH. In the early 1990s the company was purchased by Music Brokers International B.V. of the Netherlands. Eventually it was decided that making pianos in Germany was not economically viable, so manufacturing was moved to Yantai, China, where, under license, Perzina verticals and grands were made for a number of years by another company. In 2003, Music Brokers International established Yantai-Perzina, a joint-venture factory in Yantai, where it now builds Perzina pianos.
This model is rated the same rank as Japanese made Yamaha GC series, and has a 90% European Standard Quality Certificate, meaning that 90% of the pianos' parts are from Europe.
