Impressions “Unlike the vast majority of pianos that feature duplexing, which adds extra ‘ring’ to pianos, Grotrian has intentionally quieted those voices to produce an incredibly clear and focused tone. When I sat at the Grotrian G192 (192), there’s a pure tone that is perceived. At quiet levels, the tone is felty. At louder volumes, there is a crossover to boldness. This non-duplexed design is only found on the German-built Grotrian pianos.” ~ Glen Barkman
History: In 1835, Friedrich Grotrian established a partnership with Theodor Steinweg (also known in America as Steinway). Friedrich’s son Wilhelm Grotrian purchased shares when Theodor left to help run Steinway in New York. Known as Grotrian-Steinweg (or simply Grotrian in North America), the company was recently purchased (2015) by Parsons from Hong Kong. With this new partnership, they are committed to the continuation of German manufacturing and have also introduced the Friedrich Grotrian line (2017) where G192, iron, soundboard and strings are made in China then the remainder is finished in Germany. At the NAMM 2018 show, they displayed the Wilhelm Grotrian line, completely manufactured in China. Read the Grotrian article for more information.
