This 264 cm long Ibach grand piano was manufactured in Schwelm/Westphalia, Germany in 1915. Its concert size as well as the iconic Ibach design make it a very special instrument both for professional as well as amateur players.
Ibach was until 2007 the oldest piano manufacturer in the world still in production. Founded in 1794, the company was one of the leading manufacturers of pianos and grand pianos. Until 1904, the company also produced organs. Ibach was and is still managed by the founding family; by the beginning of the 21st century, the seventh generation joined the company. In December 2007, piano production at the Schwelm site was discontinued. Today, the company is engaged in supporting the pianos manufactured by Ibach.
Like all Ibach pianos this grand is characterized by the high attention to detail in manufacturing employed at Ibach, creating a sound full of power and soul. Its size makes it capable of filling concert halls the same as sizable living rooms. Ibach employed architects to refine their design on a regular basis. This design gives the instrument a low key and slim look, hiding its actual size from the viewer. Additionally, the Ibach grand piano has two more keys in the bass, making it a total of 90, which give it a more balanced sound image in the lower region, even if they are not directly played.
