In Stock!  Where to start with this one? Originally built in 1926 during the golden age of between the wars, this Steinway just completed a top-down restoration. No expense was spared; the original soundboard was refurbished, and the plate regilded. New strings, pins, and agraffes have been installed, and the action is brand new. The brass hardware was all re-plated and polished and the cabinet has been finished in ebony polyester. Look at the photos; it really turned out brilliantly, but what do you expect from 10 months of effort?

A full regulation and concert-level tuning have been performed. It could use some break in time, and it is just now coming into its own, but it will be a joy for someone to own for generations to come. At 5’ 7” it is the perfect size for most homes and is the most chosen of all the Steinway models. Complete with a brand-new matching artist bench. New these are $95,800 so at this price it represents a true bargain, but you really must come and play it to see what all the fuss is about. 

One minute, you are riding down a massive stream of thunderous chords, and the next, suddenly, silvery single notes are streaming out from under your fingers. Coupling a majestic soundstage with a sumptuous level of finesse and bloom, it offers a musical experience that lingers in the ear long after the notes themselves have faded away.


The Steinway M Grand Piano was first introduced in 1911, following the designs of Henry Ziegler. Initially produced in the New York Steinway factory, production began later in Hamburg in 1926. Ever since, the piano has become famed for its depth of sound despite its manageable size. Indeed, at 5'7", it's considered a "Medium Grand" – though its warm, rich tone has ensured it was much sought-after by conservatories and music schools worldwide, including the Juilliard School, where all practice rooms have Steinway M Grand Pianos. 

Nor is the Steinway M restricted to teaching – Grammy winner Carole King composed most of her hit songs on a 1924 Steinway Model M Piano. So, if you're a fan of her sound, you'll likely enjoy this piano that harks from just two years later.


Like all Steinway grand pianos, the Steinway M contains a superior Sitka Spruce soundboard. Steinway has long selected their wood for a minimum number of annual rings to ensure it meets their exacting standards. 

However, while the soundboard may resemble its modern counterparts, it will differ. This 1926 Steinway M was constructed before the production of Steinway's 1936 "Diaphragmatic Soundboard" patent. That's not to say this Steinway M hasn't stood the test of time. From the Hornbeam hammers to the keybed of quartersawn spruce, you're sure to feel the quality and longevity of this finely aged instrument.

Overall, you can expect a very responsive action alongside a full, rich tone. The smaller stature of the piano belies a sonorous, warm sound. Little wonder it's so highly regarded. If you've got a living room corner or studio that can accommodate this piano, you're not just getting a symphony in wood but a little slice of history.
