Part of the new design is the unique floating soundboard and direct coupled bass bridge which allows for a much better bass response than most pianos at an even larger size.
All action parts are Maple and all hammers are the cold formed process for better tonal quality and longevity.

Frames cast through the V-Process construction method

Pin blocks made of 17-layer laminated panel to raise bearing power
