Model “Belforte”

I further developed the Belforte on the basis of the Belcanto. Thanks to the even more dynamic variety and the precise setting-in of the tone, the Belforte is especially suitable for ensembles and solos, even in great halls. The fundamental basses develop a balanced and transparent sound picture together with the warm centres and the clear descant. The Belforte – a significant instrument!
