In a world crowded with choices in pianos, one instrument stands clearly above the rest: Steinway. The pianos hand-crafted by Steinway & Sons are universally acknowledged as the world’s finest pianos, and are the choice of 95% the world’s performing artists.
A Steinway is more than just a musical instrument, it is a cherished heirloom that is as beautiful to look at as it is to hear. Each Steinway & Sons piano is made by hand, taking a full year to complete. Steinway pianos are appreciated for the superior strength and great beauty of their cases. In addition to the time-honored Ebony finish, all Steinway & Sons pianos are available in any of our Crown Jewel veneers to meet the individual tastes of discerning customers.
Steinway & Sons makes both grand and vertical pianos. In a grand piano, the soundboard and strings are positioned horizontally, while in a vertical piano they are positioned vertically. In a grand piano, gravity assists the piano action and makes it more responsive. Choosing the type and size of piano that is right for you depends on where it will be placed. A piano with longer strings and larger soundboard will produce a bigger sound.
Steinway pianos set the standard for sound, touch and beauty. No piano offers a richer tone, more impressive heritage or greater return on investment than a Steinway. For more than 165 years every handmade Steinway piano has increased in value.
