Strings

A traditional Suzuki has more than 200 strings that have to flawlessly perform each time. The brand uses highly polished German steel hand wound with solid copper windings. Roslau strings on solid sand cast iron plate produce superb sound that has a timbre and tone that is equal if not more than other piano brands in the same category.

Pinblocks

Where most piano brands use 16-ply pinblocks, Suzuki pianos are fitted with 17-ply rock hard maple pinblocks which make the piano in tune for a longer time.

Soundboard

The soundboard is the “heart” of a Suzuki grand piano and Suzuki baby grand piano. Only carefully chosen Spruce with at least 10 growth rings per square inch are used. Bridges are made of kiln-dried hardwood for humidity control. The ribs are carefully marked into the piano's rim liner so that the crown of the soundboard lasts long.

All Suzuki piano cabinetry has understated character and elegance. Each curve is hand-bent and its finishing hand-rubbed.

All these special procedure components ensures an acoustic piano from Suzuki that reverberate with a full-toned and rich bass register, a warm albeit brilliant middle keyboard register and crisp, clear treble.

Suzuki is known for its exact specifications, meticulous finishing, superb craftsmanship and rich tones and timbre.
