Steinway & Sons “Crown Jewel Collection” Studio Grand Piano.
This 1922 Steinway & Sons model M Studio grand piano is one of the finest musical instruments ever built. It is truly a historical piece of Americana. This was the golden era of American piano building and Steinway & Sons was the piano that every other was judged by. It is handcrafted and took a full year to build. The Steinway factory held most of the important patents in the industry and the family participated in all of the significant operations of the factory. In the world of musical instruments, there are pianos – and then there are Steinway & Sons. Three years after this instrument was built is when Steinway Hall was completed. Three years later, Horowitz and Rachmaninoff met in the hall’s basement and played Rachmaninoff’s 3rd Concerto, which became Horowitz’s trademark. Advertisements and promotional posters were released that proclaimed the Steinway & Sons piano to be “The Instrument of the Immortals “.

A piano restored to its original glory.
This piano was restored approximately twenty years ago by a restoration shop on the east coast. It received a new, all-important pinblock and tuning pins so your tuning stability is ensured for decades to come. It was restrung with quality music wire and custom bass strings for purity of tone and harmonicity. A new set of hammers were hung so it has new hammer felts, damper felts and hammer-rest felts insuring a lovely tone quality. The key bushings were replaced for a smooth keyboard feel, as well as other action bushings throughout that were worn. The soundboard was free of cracks and has adequate crown, so it was left alone, and its ribs are still securely intact. The bridges are in excellent condition, also. It still has its original light mahogany finish that shows some natural patina. The genuine ivory keytops were carefully cleaned and bleached. It is rare indeed to find ivory in such wonderful condition after all these years. They are in gorgeous condition with a warm, soft-white lustrous glow. The wooden sharp keys were cleaned and lacquered black to perfection. We will be happy to offer a two-year warranty on the piano.

“The piano of the Immortals. “
This model M features the classic “Steinway sound”; having a strong, singing treble and a powerful bass, rich in high harmonics. The duration of tone (sustain time) is lengthy, which enables legato phrases to be enjoyed. The dynamic range is wide, allowing the pianist to play expressively and emotively. It is neither overly mellow and dull or overly bright and tinny. The mid-treble, where most of the melody lines are played “sings” and doesn’t disappear under the background of an accompaniment. It has the power that most pianos aspire to but not the brash “loudness” that often results. The Steinway & Sons grand piano action is the vanguard of piano actions. Steinway held most of the patents issued to piano manufacturers for action improvements including the exclusive “Accelerated Action”, which increases the speed of repetition. The patented Tubular Metallic action frame maintains proper alignment of the thousands of action parts. This action has been well-regulated and ready now for concert performances.
