How does it sound?
We want to dispel a few notions that seem to be on people’s minds when it comes to transparent pianos. The most asked question is: how does it sound? Answer: just as good as a traditional piano.
The soundboard determines the sound of your piano, and high-end piano pianos made by Blüthner all use alpine spruce for the soundboard, giving it a beautiful tone. The rim of the piano (body) and the lid act more like amplifiers – bouncing the sound out into the space. Blüthner’s proprietary acrylic formula is denser than wood, so it acts as a more powerful amplifier, giving the piano a bigger, brighter sound. The individuality of the tone is also achieved by shaving and needling the felt on the hammers, which are exactly the same as on the traditional concert grand Blüthner.
Less effected by humidity changes
Due to the unique molecular structure of bespoke acrylic, it is much more weather resistant, as it does not swell or shrink as wood does when exposed to humidity or dryness. Having a high-end acrylic piano in a humid/coastal location will require much less fuss with keeping all the doors shut and temperature controlling the room, as traditional piano requires in order to be in top condition.
The cosmetic maintenance of Blüthner Lucid acrylic pianos is minimal, and they should be wiped with a microfiber cloth which is lightly sprayed with the acrylic polish we provide.
The new trend
Transparent pianos are the fastest growing trend in the piano industry. Those with a taste for design and contemporary glamour are finding that acrylic piano is a unique statement of individual style that transforms any room into a powerful statement. The classic piano shape comes to life in a completely different way when molded of a transparent material, drawing your eyes inside the instrument, exposing the beauty and the wonder of the piano action. No longer a black box with secrets inside, the transparent piano reveals its heart, much like the open heart of a top luxury watch. If you like to be among the trendsetters – the transparent piano is a must object for your statement home.
As Bluthner Lucid pianos are built to order, no two are alike. Many available customizations make these pianos unique, one-of-a-kind instruments; therefore, they hold value much better than traditional wooden pianos. The current market is saturated with classic pianos, while finding a Blüthner Lucid is impossible, thus making it a sound investment with respect to depreciation.
