Bluthner Over-Damper

Another of the classic ‘best of’ models, this Bluthner O/D – often misguidedly dismissed as a second-class instrument, just because it uses the early style of damping in uprights: over-damping.

In fact, when built as superbly as this, with long keys, tall action and relatively large and efficient over-dampers, this action is much closer to the gravity -damper action of modern grand pianos – and so a more pianistic action than most Under-Damper Uprights.

Another World's Best?
