Handcraftsmanship paired with the most modern technology – the D3. The bell and bell branch are manufactured in a single piece. Uniform material thickness throughout the complete instrument allows it to respond evenly in all registers. Powerful fortes or floating pianos – the D3 leaves no wish unfulfilled. The standard, interchangeable lead pipe system enables you to produce a wide variety of tone qualities – an instrument as individual as the person playing it.
