Petrof Pianos

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

After apprenticing in Germany with various esteemed piano builders, Czech native Antonin Petrof would build his first grand piano and form his own company in 1864, in Hradec Kralove Czech Republic. Production would gradually expand, and after building a larger factory, Petrof built their first upright piano in 1883. Petrof would continue to expand and find prosperity under the lead of family members from each successive generation, with the Petrof family maintaining control until 1947, at which time every Czech business was nationalized by the state. The Petrof family would be brought back into the fold in 1991 when 4th generation family member Jan Petrof began managing the company. Today, Petrof is run by 5th generation family member Zuzana Ceralova Petrofova.

Today, Petrof manufactures roughly one grand piano for every 5 upright pianos, for a total of about 6,000 pianos per year. Both uprights and grands are offered in a single line of quality and receive extensive handwork. Uprights bearing the Petrof name are available in 6 sizes, from the 46” P118, to the 53” P135. Grands are also available in 6 sizes, from the 5’2” P152, to the 9’2” concert grand P282.

Petrof’s entire grand lineup was recently re-designed, with new scale designs and some interesting new technology, chiefly Petrof’s proprietary Magnetic Accelerated Action (available by special order); a new action design that replaces lead counterweights with magnets. Petrof contends that the use of magnets greatly improves the actions dynamic response.

Components in Petrof pianos are mostly sourced from the Czech Republic. Soundboards are made from Czech solid spruce and are tapered, and hammers are sourced from Renner and Abel. Rims in the grand pianos are made from laminated layers of birch and beech, and Petrof’s standard actions are from Renner.

One of Europe’s most famous and prolific piano manufacturers, Petrof pianos are a fine example of a high-quality European piano and represent a lower-cost alternative to the best pianos of Germany and Italy.
