The Julius Blüthner Pianofortefabrik company is one of Europe’s (and therefore the world’s) oldest and most respected piano manufacturers. Together with C.Bechstein, Bosendorfer, and Steinway & Sons, Blüthner is the make of pianos that are most highly regarded by major recording companies, concert halls, and music conservatories.
The Bluthner Irmler Supreme SP 132 is the premier upright piano and is part of Bluthner’s ‘Supreme’ range. This upright piano stands 132 cm tall which makes it the tallest Bluthner upright in this category of professional pianos for studio work and performance.
The case is a traditional style upright piano case that’s finished in polished ebony. The soundboard is made from one piece of solid spruce for exceptional tone and resonance. The hammers are manufactured by the Abel Hammer Company, another German firm that specializes in hammers for pianos and only uses the best wood and felt for a perfect response even after years of play. The Detoa action is balanced by hand by the instrument makers at Blüthner’s facility in Leipzig and offers just the right amount of resistance.
