Steinway Model "B"
This magnificent seven-foot grand piano is often described as “the perfect piano.” In terms of balance, beauty and power, it has no equal. The choice of top recording studios, it is also the piano many Steinway artists have in their homes. Wonderfully balanced and versatile, it performs extremely well in both intimate settings and mid-sized venues. It is the musical instrument that those who love the piano can’t wait to play. No matter where you want to go, this piano will get you there.
Steinway Model "A"
At 6 feet 2 inches, this amazing piano sounds like a much larger model. The powerful yet warm sound is the result of an amazing scale design that allows the solid spruce soundboard to freely and efficiently vibrate, producing a sound that simply cannot be experienced in any piano other than a Steinway. Its slightly longer keys give the player a sense of heightened sensitivity and control. The size of this piano is large enough to satisfy those who demand a full, rich bass — yet small enough to beautifully fit into almost any studio.
Steinway Model "O"
Six remaining to be purchased
This 5-foot-10 ¾-inch piano has been a source of joy and inspiration since the very early 1900s, and continues to be so today. Its sound is particularly warm and rich, far beyond what one would expect for a piano that is under six feet in length. Its action offers the sensitivity and control that has made Steinway famous. No matter what you ask of this piano, it has an answer ready.
