About the Bechstein 280:

The Bechstein 280 is a modern 9-foot, German concert grand piano, built in 2006. This is a very precise, technical piano that creates a fantastic classical sound, particularly for more demanding works. It can also produce a really unique, big, pop/rock piano sound. A similar Bechstein has been used by Supertramp and many others. The Supertramp Bechstein piano on “Crime Of The Century” was recorded by legendary Engineer/Producer Ken Scott, and we persuaded Ken to engineer a pop/rock version of this piano for this collection. Producer Doug Rogers purchased the Bechstein in 2006, and when EastWest Studios re-opens to the public in 2008, this will be the EastWest Studio 1 concert grand.
