The C. Bechstein A160 baby grand is, in a word, surprising. It’s among the smallest premium baby grand on the market, yet close your eyes and you’d swear you were hearing bass tone from a 5’10” or even 6′ piano. Complex, clear, and extremely well controlled, the A160 is far more colourful than most people would expect from a German small grand – which normally delivers clarity but without warmth. This has both in spades.
