The new Dragonfly grand piano is the fourth in a series of special edition marquetry pianos from Bösendorfer.

Limited to 18 Model 200 grand pianos, each has an individually numbered brass plaque. In keeping with the Viennese tradition of incorporating art into the craft of piano-making, the unique dragonfly design on the inside of the lid recreates a beautiful scene from nature, Veneers used within the marquetry inlay include tulip wood, English and American burr walnut, birds eye maple, ripple sycamore, myrtle burr, silky oak, and eucalyptus. Features include an independent Capo d’Astro that allows for perfect adjustment in the descant registry, hand-spun Bösendorfer bass strings, single stringing and three pedals.

The instrument’s body is crafted from Austrian spruce resonance wood.
