Model: 290 Imperial Grand and CEUS player system

Serial: 49005

Year: 2012

Location: Troy, Michigan

Description: The Bösendorfer Imperial features 97 keys: a full eight octaves. This is in contrast to their other extended model, the Bösendorfer 225, which has 92 keys (down to F0). The extra keys, which are all at the bass end of the keyboard (that is, to the left), are colored black so that the pianist can tell them apart from the normal keys of an 88-key piano.While the keys are seldom used, the extra bass strings create additional harmonic resonance that contributes to an overall richer sound. As such, Compositions have been written specifically to utilize the extra keys. The Bösendorfer CEUS is an evolutionary Marvel and offers the capability to accurately record and to play back the full expressiveness of even the most talented pianist. The CEUS was the only options that gave Bösendorfer Imperial 290 pianos the capabilities of recording a performer, storing or transmitting the data, then having the file played back through the same or another similarly equipped piano. The CEUS presented a sense of the performance and the playback accuracy that are impossible for the human ear to distinguish from the original performance. CEUS can play back a saved music file that you select, or play back a sequence of songs in the order desired. So an artist may record several songs, save them, then rearrange the songs within a directory to play back in their best sequence. This piano was privately owned, meticulously maintained, and was never on a stage. It is perfect in every way and backed by our nationwide 5-year parts and labor warranty. We accept credit cards and offer affordable financing options.
