Vario System

This silent system was especially developed for the uprights and grands of the Bechstein group. When you activate the Vario mute, the cords and the soundboard generate no sound, hence the expression “silent system”. As a consequence, you can play around the clock without disturbing anyone – as though you were in a soundproof booth.

This innovative module is made in Germany. It not only stands out for its optimum dynamics, elegant design and user-friendliness, but also perfectly renders the player’s touch.

The VARIO App integrates itsself seamlessly into the VARIO digital system and offers a comfortable handling of detailed features. Your favourite settings can be saved directly in the VARIO element and can be accessed by the push of a button without the app.


Your C. Bechstein piano is a friend for a lifetime.

The Academy uprights and grands of the Bechstein brand are an alternative to the outstanding, but more costly pianos of the Residence line. They have been tailored to the needs of conservatories and are available on a smaller budget. Although not designed to perform in large concert halls, these instruments are still made to satisfy professional demands. These pianos are powerful enough for performances in chamber music halls and private venues, and they are sturdy enough to withstand the playing of the most vigorous music students.

Differences between the acoustic assemblies of the two lines are found in the selection and combination of materials as well as in the crafting process.
