Steinway Model D
Concert Grand
Steinway Model D


Steinert Overview

Indisputably the one and only piano model in the world by which all others are judged. One is hard-pressed to find any other piano model being used for performance on a major concert stage anywhere in the world. The official piano of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New England Conservatory, the Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute, Oberlin College, and over 200 All-Steinway Schools across America, the Steinway Model D has become synonymous with “piano”. The vast majority of professional classical recordings are on Model Ds and over 95% of concert performances when performing with orchestra worldwide feature the Model D.

Those seeking unequaled pride of ownership, musical inspiration, and joy of playing.

Braces
5 solid spruce braces with a volume of 2,907 cu. in. (47,637 cm3); Spruce provides tensile strength with less weight. Maple dowels fasten braces to rim producing a single homogenous foundation upon which is built the entire tonal component. A cast iron treble bell, affixed to rim’s underside at treble bend, holds plate firmly in position by means of a steel bolt. The Steinway & Sons iron wedge anchors brace ends securely to crossblock assuring permanent rim posture.

Made from durable, resinous sugar pine to assure strong and constant support of string down-bearing on the soundboard; rib ends are hand-fitted.

Dampers
Horizontal-cut premium wool for effective dampening with maple heads for endurance.

Made from planks of quarter-sawn spruce. Horizonal and vertical birch planks present a vented system for humidity escapement. Crowned and reverse-crowned action frame gives a snug fit, intensifies key movement and prevents “slapping” during heavy playing.
