Steinway Model D Concert Grand 9'
The history of this wonderful Steinway D was shared with us by the daughter of the gentleman who owned the piano. He was, as one would imagine, a player and piano enthusiast. His desire always was to, one day, own a Steinway D. After he retired he purchase this piano from the original owner. The piano was then moved to his home where it spent it's life in a climate controlled environment and was tuned twice a year. In the early 2000's he had the hammers replaced and the piano regulated.
Cosmetically the Satin Ebony finish is in very good condition. The key tops are perfect with no chips or cracking. The soundboard is in perfect condition. All in all this is a marvelous example of a Steinway and Sons model D concert grand. The sound is breathtaking. There is nothing quite like the power, tone and sustain of a 9' Steinway grand.
Steinway Model D 9' Concert Grand (from the manufacturer)
For more than a century and a half, the world’s most accomplished pianists have preferred to express their musical genius on Steinway & Sons pianos. The list includes the giants in classical, jazz, and popular music; the men and women who have shaped the world’s musical heritage. Today, more than 98 percent of the world’s active concert pianists choose to perform on Steinway pianos. The joy of playing and owning a Steinway piano, however, is not the exclusive domain of the virtuosi. Rather, it is a world open to all who share a love of music, fine craftsmanship and enduring quality.
That which distinguishes Steinway pianos, more than all else, is summed up in our dedication to a single ideal: make the finest pianos in the world. It has never entered our minds to compromise quality. Where some have substituted mass-produced, synthetic components to speed production or reduce costs, we apply technologies and new materials only when they provide proven enhancements in the piano. We adhere to these principles for one reason — compromise quality, and you risk the sound, the touch, and ultimately, the integrity of the instrument.
