EastWest Pianos Bechstein D-280 - Welcome to one of the most detailed collections ever recorded of the world famous Bechstein 280. This Bechstein 280 is a modern 9-foot, German concert grand piano, built in 2006.

It is a very precise, technical piano that creates a fantastic classical sound, particularly for more demanding works. It can also produce a really unique, big, pop/rock piano sound. A similar Bechstein has been used by Supertramp and many others.

Producer Doug Rogers purchased the Bechstein in 2006, and this is the EastWest Studio concert grand.

EastWest Pianos  is a Gold & Platinum Edition virtual instrument that includes four of the world's finest grand pianos: the Gold edition of this Bechstein D-280, a Bösendorfer 290, a Steinway D, and a Yamaha C7. Click here for full details on the complete EastWest QL Pianos collection.

  • 24-bit 44.1 Samples (Platinum)
