Steinway & Sons 5’-7” Studio Grand Piano.
This is one of the finest musical instruments ever, and it was built by the 4th generation Steinway family before the company was sold to CBS and several subsequent owners. Steinway & Sons is the piano that every other is judged by. It is handcrafted and took a full year to build. The Steinway company has held nearly all of the important patents in the industry and the family has always participated in all of the significant operations of the factory. Steinway is nearly exclusively responsible for improving and modernizing piano manufacturing throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. In the world of musical instruments, there are pianos – and then there are Steinway & Sons. They enjoy a reputation second to none. Historically, the Steinway model M grand piano is their most popular model, and its medium size makes it an excellent home instrument. It isn’t a secret that pre-owned Steinway & Sons pianos are the biggest competition to the sale of exorbitantly priced brand-new models.
Excellent condition, structurally and aesthetically.
Classic satin ebony lacquer finish.
“The Instrument of the Immortals “.
This model M features the classic “Steinway sound”, having a strong, singing treble, a resonant tenor mid-range and a powerful bass, rich in high harmonics. With richness, depth and power, they radiate plenty of tonal color. It is due to their combination of harmonics that distinguishes them from other makers. 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, with its 12,116 individual parts 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. A grand piano-action regulation requires 14 separate adjustments per key. Our talented 88 Keys piano-technicians have been busy, and the piano-action has been well-regulated and ready now for concert performances.
