At present, Hoffmann & Kühne offers a great variety of pianos - grand, upright and console models. They currently offer five grands, twelve uprights and four consoles. Each model varies in their exterior physical attributes but share some common threads in their interior.
All pianos share the same action: hard maple parts, natural skin knuckles and backchecks. (Grand pianos have five die cast brackets while both the upright and consoles have three).
Another interior similarity of these pianos are their keys that are made up of Spruce key sticks with maple key buttons that are individually balanced and lead weighted.
They also share the same hammer material (High density Virgin Wool felt, T-pinned and reinforced) and the sound boards are made of solid spruce. All models are available in different finishes.
Many of their pianos share the same qualities, but some have specifications that are especially designed for specific models, to enhance each mechanism and actions of the piano.
