P 159 Bora grand piano

P 159 Bora grand piano
Due to its size the P 159 Bora grand piano is ideal for hobby players and professional pianists who wish to practise at home. It is the smallest instrument of the New generation of PETROF grand pianos and it does not lack the characteristic romantic tone of PETROF grand pianos.
Even though this piano is shorter, we have used the most advanced structural elements of great concert instruments and the selected materials of the best quality.
