Steinway Model M
Medium Grand
Steinway Model M


Steinert Overview

The original factory name was “Midget Grand” because it was the first Steinway model less than 5’10” (1900 Model O) in length. All pianos under 6’ were originally classified as part of the Miniature Family of Steinways. Prior to 1900 no Steinway grand model was less than 6’.  The Model M has become one of the most popular Steinway models.

The “ideal” baby grand.Not for more advanced amateurs and professionals who are looking for the bigger “grand sound” that can fill a larger space with wider dynamic range.
