The Model B Grand Piano is modelled after a beautiful Hamburg grand piano from the Martha Argerich Edition, a set of 25 grand pianos selected and signed in 2014 by the prestigious pianist for their musicality.
Subtle refinements of the physical model were made, resulting in a noticeably clear tone and astounding dynamics.
The electro-acoustic piano Pianet N joins the Pianet T, Electra-piano and Clavinet D6 as part of the Hohner Collection, authorized by Hohner.
The Concert Harp for Pianoteq, physically modelled after a Salvi concert grand harp, includes pedals to change the pitch of the strings when playing in diatonic mode. It also allows you to play pinch harmonics (flageolets) and glissando.
Since there are no damped strings during playing, the harp has a special magical sound which the Pianoteq physical modelling manages to capture with astonishing authenticity.
