At the turn of the 19th century, Weber pianos posed the greatest threat to the growing reputation of Steinway and Sons. Weber pianos were acclaimed by concert pianists such as Anton Rubenstein and Ignaz Padwerski. Pope Pius XI selected Weber pianos as the official piano of the Vatican, and many royal families, including Queen Elizabeth II have endorsed Weber as their piano of choice. Today in the new millennium, Weber pianos offer a unique singing tone and suburb touch without a premium price. Del Fandrich, illustrious piano technician and former piano designer for Baldwin USA, redesigned all Weber pianos to restore their former American tone.
This W150 is 4’11’1/2” but features a tone that rivals many larger instruments. The action is well regulated and enables the advanced player to achieve a musical tone. While no one will argue that a 5’ grand can rival the possibilities of a much larger grand, the value and quality this W150 represents is truly extraordinary. A petite artist’s grand, through and through.
