Manufacture Petrof, Czech Republic, Europe
More than 30 carpenters work at the Petrof factory in Hradec Králové (near Prague, Czech Republic) with wood from Czech forests. They build the instruments, from raw tree trunks: keyboard, soundboard and furniture.
>Lacquer operations are carried out in-house, which makes it possible to meet customization requests (specific colors, gilding, etc.).
The manufacture of the low strings, the spinning of copper, is carried out manually by the employees of Petrof (100% female work team).
Little by little the piano takes shape:
- Assembly and drying of the woods that will constitute the soundboard, the vibrant heart of the instrument.
- Assembly of Renner hammer heads on their wooden handles
- Assembly and adjustments of Petrof or Renner mechanics (depending on instrument range)
- Peg and piano stringing
- Assembly of keyboard, pedals and the latest components
- Break-in of the instrument in sound chamber
- Harmonizing the sound of hammers
- Fine tuning of keyboard, mechanics and string alignment
Having visited the Petrof factory, the Pianos Schaeffer employees can tell you about the love of the employee-craftsmen who make these quality pianos.
