The STEINWAY grand is the gold standard of musical instruments, representing over 160 years of dedication to craftsmanship and uncompromised expression. It is for these reasons that over 19 out of 20 concert pianists choose the STEINWAY grand piano — and why the instrument remains at the heart of cultured homes the world over.
STEINWAY & SONS upright pianos are handcrafted to the highest standard of quality in the same factory as our grands, using the same materials, techniques, conditioning processes and craftsmen. The only difference is that they’re built in the “vertical department,” where those same processes are vertically oriented. The result is the world’s finest upright, living up to the STEINWAY & SONS name in every respect. Our upright pianos take advantage of myriad patented features and processes, including our Diaphragmatic soundboard, Accelerated Action and Hexagrip pinblock.
Every STEINWAY & SONS grand and upright is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and a consummate work of art. Each STEINWAY piano, consisting of more than 12,000 individual parts, has its own musical character and is as unique as the individual who plays it.
Pure artistic expression has the power to touch, move and transform, and the STEINWAY piano exists to remove all barriers between the listener and the pure, uncompromised expression of the artist.
To call a genuine grand or upright piano of STEINWAY & SONS one’s own is an overwhelming feeling. Far more than just an exquisite instrument, it is an instrument of the highest expression and creativity. A STEINWAY piano intimately connects artist and listener, and invites its owner to join a tradition of musical perfection, making it an invaluable investment.
