history of the PETROF
company dates back to 1864 when Antonín Petrof made his first piano and thus founded the great tradition of manufacturing pianos of unique quality. The masterly manufacturing of every detail results in the timeless style of the instruments with rich, perfectly clear sound and a col- ourful width of the music expression. Despite maximum effort to introduce new technologies, we insist on hand work which guaran- tees the high tone quality of our instruments. Thanks to their unique character, PETROF
pianos can reach out to a widespectrum of musicians including the top world piano virtuosos. The real proof is in more than 600 000 manufactured pianos.
All instruments manufactured in PETROF
have their characteristic and inimitable sound thanks to keeping many traditional tech- niques, as using classic natural materials and the handicraft skills of our craftsmen above all.
Our modern research and development department has al- lowed not only the conversion of our handicraft production into industrial manufacturing, but also the innovation of our instruments and the development of new instruments according to musicians demands. The demand concerning playing of the instrument and its design was satisfied in a very short time by keeping the high quality sound. This department guarantees that PETROF
will keep on introducing new piano construction possibilities. The result is a wide range of upright and grand piano models with many surface finishes. Since 2007, all Petrof instruments bear a new EUROPEAN EXCELLENCE
seal (EEX). This seal especially marks the instrument’s European origin, and is another guarantee of its maxi- mum quality, long service life, professional service and high practical value. PETROF instruments, thanks to their high quality, can satisfy a wide spectrum of customers, from beginners to experienced pianists and vir- tuosos. Therefore PETROF
has become not only a leading piano manu- facturer in Europe, but it also ranks among top positions worldwide.
