In Stock! Scarce as hens’ teeth and finally finished after several years of work, this Steinway model A-2 is ready for its forever home. How does it sound? A dark mezzo voice and tons of power are the hallmarks of this instrument. A growl in the bass and sparkle on top. Big sound for a big player.

Steinway & Sons Model A-2 grand piano #111166 was built in 1904 at the New York Steinway factory in the Victorian style. Slightly longer than the A-1, the A-2 “long-scale” measured in at 6’ 2”. This new scale design featured a more seamless tonal progression from the high bass to the lower treble section. The Steinway Model A-2 was in regular production in New York until 1914 and continued in production at the Hamburg factory. This style Steinway grand piano features a round arm cabinet with double moldings along the base of the case. The piano sits on Victorian Ice Cream Cone style legs and features a carved pedal lyre. The cabinet was refinished in a rich satin ebony lacquer and has been freshly hand rubbed by our piano refinishers.


Unlike all of the others out there this one was rebuilt using genuine Steinway factory parts. Hammers, shanks, flanges, repetitions, backchecks, the whole enchilada. Exacting action regulation and voicing has been completed by a Steinway trained technician to ensure a light, responsive touch and rich, full, Steinway quality of tone. Kluge ebony keytops were installed by Reyburn Pianoworks as well as a new Bolduc soundboard and bridges. Then it received a full set of Mapes piano wire and a matching Jansen artist bench was custom built for it. Just look at the pictures and see how it turned out. Hurry in because these never last especially in this kind of condition.


Measuring 6' 2", the Steinway Model A Grand Piano is the smallest of the legendary piano maker's concert grands. Yet, hidden beneath the lid is a surprising sound; warm and sonorous, its solid spruce soundboard certainly emphasizes the concert in concert grand.

The Steinway Model A is the ideal solution wherever a concert grand is needed but space is limited. Larger homes, schools, conservatories, and even music venues can rely on the Steinway A as a robust piano with bags of sound and depth. 

In an elegant ebony finish, this early version of the timeless instrument is immaculately tuned and regulated to ensure it sings like it did in 1904. 


The secret to every great Steinway is its beating heart: the soundboard. All soundboards are made from superior Sitka Spruce, selected for its regular grain and a minimum number of growth rings. The responsive action is one of the top reasons why the Steinway Model A is a firm favorite of many professional players. Being able to tackle the hardest, most skilled pieces, knowing the piano will respond as you want, is the joy of playing a Steinway A.

The reason that the Steinway Model A piano stands the test of time is in part due to the sturdy rim construction. Since 1878, Steinway & Sons have used the most innovative techniques to create support and structural integrity – that means the string and Hornbeam hammers work perfectly in sync.

Overall, even over a hundred years after its production, this is an impressive and versatile piano – ready to be the crown jewel of any household or venue.
