We believe in the skill, strength and sensibility of our craftsmen’s hands

Yet despite this difficult path five generations of Petrofs have earned worldwide success,. Their brilliantly pure, rich sound and excellent craftsmanship lend PETROF’s grand and upright pianos an unprecedented reputation. 80% of the production process lies in the hands of our skilled pianomakers, intoners and tuners, whose rich experience we have accumulated over many decades. Every instrument that leaves our factory represents the good name of its builders.
