Here is one of the most popular models of Steinway & Sons manufactured in New York. This piano has just been rebuilt with new pinblock, strings, tuning pins, damper felts, key tops, key bushings, front rail bushings and more.
The case has been refinished in the classic ebony sprayed lacquer, hand-rubbed finish. The plate has been re-gilded and the metal parts have been re-plated. The pedal trap-work has also been rebuilt. This piano has had very moderate use. The action has been refined with gentle hammer re-shaping, regulation and fine voicing.
The model M Steinway is vastly more popular than the smaller model S because it has a much more satisfying bass register. Yet, this piano can fit almost anywhere a baby grand can fit. That is one of the reasons these instruments are highly sought after.
The action is dead quiet and since it employs Steinway’s patented Accelerated Action, it is lightning fast! More importantly, it responds evenly throughout all registers.
The price of new Steinway pianos has put them out of the reach of all but a little over 1,000 people who buy them each year. The good news is this piano is on a very high level and should last about as long as a new Steinway piano with regular maintenance and proper environment.
