August Forster Grand Piano. This top-tier German piano is quite rare in the United States and is in an elite league of pianos. Something that is typical of pianos from Europe is that they each have their distinct tonal characteristics. The 190 is hand built from the ground up like all August Forsters, and the piano’s sound easily fits into the sound category of semi-concert grand because of the quality of the soundboard and design excellence.

The 190 has a wide tail which makes room for a larger soundboard than typically found in pianos of this size. This produces a broad tonal landscape that is warm and round. The piano maintains an overall sonoric clarity that is typical of the best German pianos. This piano has been lovingly maintained with a beautiful ebony satin finish. The soundboard has excellent crown resulting in a sustained, singing treble. The sound is crisp and clear yet round and warm. The action has been regulated for fluid performance and ease of playing.

This piano is an excellent choice for someone looking for a German piano on the highest order with a massive sound, yet under 7 feet long.

Piano is in great shape and has been maintained throughout. Holds tune and maintained by a local piano tech. No issues. Only minor blemishes which is expected on a piano at this age.

Video attached is from where I purchased the piano 5 years ago. He does a better job explaining the piano than I ever could.
