The PETROF P 135 K1
upright piano is one of the tallest uprights available at 135cm and the pinnacle of the master built upright piano series. These are upright pianos with the greatest sound potential and rivals many grand pianos. If you do not have the room for a 6' grand piano then this is for you. This model uses the Renner Action with genuine Renner parts from the Renner factory in Germany. This is a widely acclaimed action and is used by many European piano factories. The instrument provides wider possibilities for a player to control the sound. The P 135K1 piano uses 3 foot pedals and a hand lever. The hand lever activates the practice pedal(reduces volume for practicing) which would normally be controlled by the middle pedal. The middle pedal is then used on this model as a sostenuto. This is the same as a grand piano and enables notes played before the pedal is depressed to sustain and all notes played after the pedal is depressed not to sustain. Another unique feature of all Petrof upright pianos is the use of agraffe tuning pins on all 88 notes. This allows far greater accuracy in the scale of the strings. Every Petrof piano is supplied with a European Excellence certificate that guarantees that Petrof pianos are made in Europe but more importantly that nearly all the materials in the piano are also made in Europe and not from somewhere like China or Korea. Unless the piano has the European Excellence Hollagram visible it is probably not fully Europen
