For over 160 years, Steinway & Sons has been dedicated to making the finest pianos in the world. Pioneering handcrafted methods are still employed today to ensure uncompromising standards of quality, in turn ensuring that the Steinway piano remains the peerless instrument of uncompromising expression.
We at Music Gallery have a fully restored Model M Steinway & Sons New York Grand Piano featured in our showroom. This piano has a beautifully rich and warm tone, with a quick and responsive action and is a dream to play.
Made in USA in 1929 - over 100 years old.
This 5'7" Grand Piano in a matte ebony finish, with silver accents and original ivory keys is in fantastic condition, fully restored to perfection. The Model M has no defects or signs of age and comes with the original sound board in perfect condition - no cracks or scratches.
Considered by piano movers to be a "Baby Grand," the Steinway M is just a few inches longer (and 1/4 inch wider) than the Steinway S, but the extra inches mean a bigger soundboard as well as longer bass strings. These enlargements will make a difference according to the size of your piano or music room. Some pianists will insist that the size difference between the M and the S makes the M superior to the S while piano tech and repair professionals uphold the merits of each model by discussing how the slight differences in size were precisely designed for a perfect fit within their respective (ideal) piano playing and listening spaces.
Nevertheless, with the larger piano, certain subtleties begin to make a difference to the well trained musical ear. In a room with acoustics suited for the M, the quality of resolution in the base begins to take on more depth and aural profundity. In fact, the overall sound of the Model M's entire range begins to sound somewhat more intense, more powerful.
As with all Steinway grand models, Steinway's patented action allows for explicit articulation in playing. The action can be maintained and regulated by professionals to offer superb performance interaction abilities (e.g. the ease of playing pianissimo, rapid repetition, evenness of tone, the quality of tone color, etc.).
