Four Exceptional Bösendorfer Pianos in One Exclusive Package
Imperial Grand is a dynamic combination of four distinguished Bösendorfer Grand Pianos combined into one amazing and affordable price. This gives musicians of all skill levels more freedom to create beautiful music and unmatched artistry all their own.
Types of Pianos
A famously rich and dark sound, the Bösendorfer 290SE establishes an incredible level of realism through hyper-detailed sound. From bass to highs, its rarity stands out across music genres ranging from new age to classical.
The carefully selected Bösendorfer 290 sounds different with Imperial Grand, maintaining a deeper, more sustained, full-body resonance that never loses clarity and always creates a lasting originality.
Another Bösendorfer 290, the Austrian Gem was recorded in a concert hall in Austria and maintains balanced clarity and full-body resonance in all register, making it perfect for living performances.
Though smaller in stature compared to the typical Bösendorfer, the “225” never loses clarity and features an open, sustained resonance tone with balance across all frequencies.
Expressive State-of-the-Art Sound and Dynamic Performance
Imperial Grand is powered by Hybrid Modeling technology and HD Velocity Layer technology providing a natural boost to expressive power that can be felt with every strike of the keys. Along with the new Neo Piano engine, which achieves 400 times more variations than a traditional sample engine, every note played is unique, creates vivid sound representation, and strikes a rich, accurate tone even with small movement. In essence, it’s an instrument with a musical soul instead of a machine feel.
Expanded Sound and Adjustable Playability
Gain unmitigated control over 40 customizable piano aspects, including the ability to lift the lid, tweak tone and harmonics, alter dampers, change dynamic range, and adjust velocity response.
