Batman’s Piano ?

The Wayne Enterprise Experience is a retail concept that brings together a range of exclusively curated “ultra-luxury” products inspired by the fictional world of Bruce Wayne (aka Batman).

These high-end products include automobiles, e-bikes, jewellery, museum-quality fine art, multimedia, tech, fashion, watercraft, and more. Some of these luxury items have been specially designed to reflect the gothic styling epitomising the world of Bruce Wayne.

One such item is the ALPANGE Piano Manor Edition. This is an exclusive digital piano designed to capture the prestige and influence of the Wayne Enterprise ecosystem. It’s the piano you’d expect to find in the Wayne mansion (were you to visit!).

ALPANGE is a French company nestling in the southern Alps. It produces meticulously crafted digital pianos with no compromises. ALPANGE is a portmanteau word derived from “Alp” (Alps) and “Ange” (meaning angel).

The ALPANGE piano is the brainchild of designer and entrepreneur Raphaël Soudre and software engineer Franck Bacquet. For the past 15 years, they have been developing this state-of-the-art instrument.

At the heart of the piano is a powerful sound engine using advanced digital modelling technology to re-create every minute nuance of the acoustic instrument. And to ensure the piano delivers the sound correctly, an array of 14 acoustic diffusers precisely resonate within the piano’s elegantly constructed wooden casework.

The Manor Edition

The ALPANGE Piano Manor Edition, with a price tag of $100,000, is (we believe) the most expensive digital piano currently on the market. This is a limited edition product — only 10 will ever be produced.

The piano features a “Gotham Carbon Black” finish on the front face with a refined black hue on all other exterior surfaces. “Batglow Yellow” lights illuminate the underside of the instrument. And the casework is badged with two Wayne Enterprises gravure legacy logo buttons. A small inset on the left leg houses a plaque detailing the limited edition number.

ALPANGE pianos are supported by the ALPANGE Peaker app, which facilitates comprehensive sound editing, performance recording, and playlists. The app records every piece ever played on the piano and stores the data in an infinite cloud memory.

The Manor Edition’s app is supplied with an exclusive playlist. This features the original motion picture (Batman) soundtrack’s performance data.

Detailed specifications of the ALPANGE Piano Manor Edition can be found below. And more information is available on the ALPANGE website (here) and the Wayne Enterprises website (here).

The Wayne Enterprise Experience is a collaboration between Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products (WBDGCP) and Relevance International’s Brand Experience & Partnerships division.
