Owned by a professional pianist, Steinway's Boston line of pianos are noted for their high level of musical excellency and elegance. Designed by Steinway and produced through Kawai , these stellar instruments combine the best traits of Steinway and Kawai pianos to create a truly fantastic instrument.
This Boston GP-163 features major Steinway design innovations that help to produce a piano that has the breadth of tone and quality of sound comparable to many instruments over a full foot larger. The 5’4” model features a Steinway-designed duplex scaling which enhances harmonic richness. It also features a "wide tail" design, making for a significantly larger Sitka spruce soundboard and longer strings than typical for a piano of this size. The strings are also held at a slightly lower tension which increases the melodic lyricism and sustained tones.
The action of the keyboard feels remarkable and can be best described as a blend between the best characteristics of the feel of Steinway and Kawai grand pianos. It veers towards the lighter-weight side without sacrificing an ounce of control. In fact, this Boston GP-163 allows the pianist an incredible measure of musical control comparable to high-end performance grade Steinway and Kawai pianos!
In a luxurious glossy mahogany finish, this piano looks every bit as sophisticated and beautiful as it sounds. It is complemented by a custom padded fabric bench with storage space.
