When you select a Ravenscroft Piano, you also receive a piece of our lives. We specialize in custom piano design and building. Our core focus is to work directly with you to conceive, design, and build the piano of your dreams. Gathering together the world’s finest materials, we lovingly and meticulously create the personalized tone, action response, and visual aesthetics of your dream piano here at our studio in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The Ravenscroft Look
Since a piano typically becomes the focal point of any room, it must be aesthetically pleasing and exist in harmony with its surroundings. This is ensured by balanced designs and a wide variety of finishes, materials, and exceptional craftsmanship in the assembly process.
The Ravenscroft Sound
We incorporate an exclusively unique design in our soundboards. The thickness of the beginning panel, the number and dimensions of the ribs, the radius of the crowning press, and the radiusing of the ribs all work together to produce a specific sound profile. Soundboard wood from the same forest chosen by Mr. A. Stradivari is also available for your Ravenscroft piano. Instruments created with this precious wood are identified by a certification number from E. Ciresa Srl Company of Italy.
The Ravenscroft Feel
Every Ravenscroft action is individually optimized for unsurpassed performance. Additionally, we have developed a method to control and smooth the inertia of the action, not just as a whole, but from note to note. Though time intensive, this meticulous attention to detail allows the pianist to focus on expression and tone instead of having to overcome inconsistencies of the action.
