Steinway & Sons Eaves Movie Ranch Grand Piano.

 This stately grand piano spent most of its life at the world-famous JW Eaves Movie Ranch located south of Santa Fe, New Mexico just off of the Turquoise Trail. It was a status symbol and the handsome focal point of the ranch house’s formal parlor and surrounded by art and sculpture, fine furniture and floor coverings. It was never on a movie set but instead, a cherished member of the Eaves family in their private residence. A quick Google search will reveal that more than 250 movies have been filmed there and it is still a working movie set. The instrument was originally purchased in 1957 from the longtime Steinway & Sons piano dealership, the venerable Riedling Music Company in downtown Albuquerque. Upon the passing of the founder of the ranch in the 1990’s, the family offered it back for sale to the Steinway dealership and their main sales representative happily purchased it and has lovingly cared for it ever since. Not too surprisingly, the condition is excellent – structurally and aesthetically. We weren’t required to repair or adjust a single thing, though we certainly looked for ways to improve its condition. Since it has lived here in Santa Fe and Albuquerque its entire life, it is happily acclimated to our unique climate.  With the right care, it will be making beautiful music for decades to come.  We are confident to offer a two-year warranty on this instrument. The original Artists bench is included. Professional delivery is also included.

The Steinway & Sons reputation has been established around the world on concert stages, by Concert Grands that measure nine feet in length. The five feet one inch Baby Grand, however, is an integral part of the Steinway history and tradition. The company began building baby grands well over a century ago and today they are a significant part of Steinway’s production. In the 19th century parlor, in the 20th century apartment and conservatory practice room, the need for a fine smaller piano has always existed. The Steinway model S grand piano is just that.

A piano built in the Steinway & Sons tradition which takes up less space than a large grand piano and still offers the best qualities of tone and touch which have become the Steinway hallmark. The Steinway baby piano is every inch a Steinway. It is built by the same men, in the same plant, of the same materials as a Steinway & Sons Concert Grand. The volume of tone will not fill a concert hall but it has a beautiful and smaller tone perfect for a home.

Handmade by the Steinway family themselves.

Steinway & Sons holds most of the patents issued to piano manufacturers for action improvements including the exclusive Accelerated Action, patented in 1936 which increases the speed of repetition.  The 1868 patented Tubular Metallic action frame maintains proper alignment of the action parts.  It consists of seamless brass tubes with rosette-shaped contours, force fitted with maple dowels and brass hangers. The keys are constructed from Bavarian spruce that is high in tensile strength to prevent breakage. The Steinway & Sons pinblock makes it easier to tune the piano precisely and stay in tune longer than others. The Diaphramatic soundboard (US Patent Office – 1936) tapers from five to eight millimeters in thickness from the center to the perimeter. It is constructed from the highest-grade, close-grained, quarter-sawn Sitka spruce from Alaska. Planks are hand-selected to be free of defects and at the end of the day, there is more wood on the floor than actually made it into the piano.

Excellent condition – structurally and aesthetically.

This instrument 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.
