Very few Steinway pianos will ever have one owner. For most people, they are a just once-in-a-lifetime purchase to be treasured and pampered, then passed on to the next lucky generation. Such is the case with this beautiful Model S which was lightly used and well maintained by its previous owner. Built in 2004 it has decades of useful life ahead of it. Great tone, touch and warmth abound in this instrument. At 5'1" in length it will perfectly fit into any nook or cranny but features the powerful and rich tone of a much larger piano and was handcrafted using the same materials and techniques that go into making their concert grand pianos. Autographed by Henry Steinway before his passing. Finished in ebony satin complete with a matching Steinway artist bench.

Background

The Steinway S Grand Piano is one of the smallest grands in Steinway's collection. This 5' 1" piano was originally introduced by Steinway  in the 1930s. That Steinway is still producing these small yet powerful pianos is a testament to their success and quality.

Steinway S Grand Pianos are a popular choice for introducing students and players to grand pianos. Indeed, this smaller piano comfortably fits in most domestic settings, as well as commercial and smaller professional rooms. 

Specifications

Steinways are known for their high-quality materials and impressive construction; the Steinway S Grand Piano is no exception. The heart of the piano – the soundboard – uses only superior Sitka Spruce with a minimum number of annual growth rings to produce the best sound possible. In fact, the soundboard is shaped like a violin: giving a free and even response throughout the scale. 

Elsewhere, the ribs are made from durable, resinous sugar pine for additional strength and support. The strings rely on Swedish steel; the hammers are premium wool top felt with Hornbeam shanks and moldings. Even the keys themselves are chip-proof and stain-resistant.

Together, these elements produce an excellent tone with a strength of sound you may not expect. When the piano first launched, this sound got the piano-maker through the Great Depression because "it had the voice of a larger grand, but did not take up as much room."

Whether you're playing this piano in a living room or another venue, the Steinway S Grand Piano delivers the same singing, sustaining tone that sets these pianos apart. And being a smaller size, it's eminently affordable compared to its much larger counterparts.
