STUDIO  R8

The ideal choice for every home and every piano player, the Ritmüller has been favourably compared to pianos costing thousands more.

The Studio R8 (151cm) is the smallest grand piano made by Pearl River in their Ritmüller series. The precise feel of the keyboard touch as well as its richness of timbre make this grand piano unique in its price range.

Designed by a leading European master piano maker the R8 incorporated classic designs with innovations and German parts that create an outstanding musical bass section compared to the competition. The Ritmuller has an upper section with sustain and musicality and a fast responsive action which delights any pianist.

From the soft-close fallboard and tapered legs to the adjustable music desk and twin position support for the bevel-edged top lid, this is a beautifully designed baby grand piano. The longer key depth enables you to control and feel the music projecting from both sides of the soundboard. This European-styled grand piano is ideal for those with restricted space or access but who have a taste for the tone and touch of a grand piano.

Length 151mm, Width 150cm, Height 99cm Weight 289kg.  Available in black or white polished luxury cabinet finishes.

 

Upright and Grand Pianos of the Ritmüller brand impress not only by their shapely cabinets: they conceal high-quality components that create a wonderful sound. To the pride of its owner and to the joy of every music lover. No wonder that the manufacturer Pearl River is now known and popular all over the world: the unique quality in flawless design has made Pearl River one of the world’s leading piano manufacturers. The 130,000 grand and upright pianos leaving our factory every year convince discerning musicians in Europe, China, Japan and the USA.

Gottlieb Wilhelm Ritmüller began as a self-taught artist at the end of the 18th century making musical instruments since 1795 in Göttingen, Germany. In addition to the construction of a few harps, it was his well-sounding guitars that initially formed the focus of his work and quickly made him renown. Piano construction soon became the centre of production.

Ritmüller built their famous upright and grand pianos and distributed them throughout Germany and the neighbouring countries. The Hardenberger Hof factory was also a meeting place for artists and musicians. Here in the 1850s Johannes Brahms, Joseph Joachim and other well-known musicians met during the summer holidays to make music and discuss. Here Brahms experienced his famous romance with the Göttingen professorial daughter Agathe von Siebold, who also left traces in his musical work.

The beauty and precision of the products of the Pianoforte-Fabrik Wilhelm Ritmüller still testify to instruments in the Municipal museum Göttingen and other collections today.

We bought a beautiful piano from Nigel - it plays wonderfully, was a great price and was delivered within days. The... advice and guidance given when choosing from the wide range in the showroom was super honest (we wanted a starter piano and not too expensive) and very well considered. Totally recommend.read more

Fantastic experience of working with Nigel to make our dreams become reality. Great sales, service, delivery... end-to-end, and nice to chat over options with someone so obviously knowledgeable and passionate - but never over "salesy" in approach. Thanks Nigel. WE LOVE OUR GL-10 🙂read more
