One by one, these magnificent instruments come to life at the hands of skilled craftsmen with many years experience in the art of piano building."

Wyman strings are made from premium Roslau music wire from Germany, and Wyman Pianoforte hammers are constructed from German felt, resulting in pleasing piano tone.

Priced slightly higher than the popular line of Wyman grand models already offered by the company, the new premium line of Wyman Pianoforte grands offers discriminating buyers a new alternative to traditional brands costing much more. "The new Wyman Pianoforte grand is the perfect choice for the prospect looking for superior musical performance at an affordable price," commented George Benson, Wyman national sales manager. "This new line fills a niche between our traditional Wyman grand line and the other major brands our Wyman dealers carry, offering them a valuable new profit opportunity."
