Boston GP-178 PE Performance Edition Piano | Ex Lease | Bolton Store
Here we have a beautiful 'Ex-Rental' Boston GP178 Baby Grand Piano. This piano is in a polished ebony cabinet and looks amazing. There are minor signs of wear & tear, but overall looks great. Internally there are no issues at all, it has been maintained by Steinway & Sons and has a nice responsive key action with lovely tonal changes. The overall depth and harmonics make this piano a real pleasure to play. I love playing this piano and think is is excellent value for money.

More About The
Boston GP-178 PE Performance Edition Piano...
This specific grand piano has a luxury Polished Ebony finish that is Certainly guaranteed to stand out and the sound of the grand piano is of exceptional quality.This would be perfect for a professional grand piano player or anyone who would like to get started with a acoustic piano.


At (178cm), the GP-178 Performance Edition is small enough to fit in any home, but possesses the sound of a much larger grand thanks to its widetail design.

The Boston piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous Steinway & Sons design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply cant be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range.

In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Bostons superior tone and greater stability.

Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies unique patents of Steinway & Sons the result is a powerful, sustained tone.

Braces/Posts
Radiating braces of laminated Philippine mahogany provide stronger triangular support than parallel designs. This rigid support increases tuning stability, soundboard, crown retention, and longer piano life. 3 braces.

Pinblock
Octagrip pinblock made of 11 layers of hard rock maple glued in different grain angles of 60 degrees affording the tuning pins greater stability under tension and enabling the piano to stay in tune longer.

Soundboard
Close and straight-grain solid (not laminated) Sitka spruce. Minimum 3 annual growth rings per cm (minimum 8 per inch). Tapered from treble to bass, which allows a greater freedom of movement thereby creating a richer and more lasting tonal response. Tapered from 8 mm to 6 mm. Vibrating area: 1.15 m2 (1,776 in2)

Ribs
Made from durable spruce to assure strong and constant support of the strings bearing down on the soundboard. Ribs are fully let-in to the inner rim to support the important soundboard crown and prevent the piano from losing its tone. Number of ribs: 10

Bridges
Treble: Vertically laminated (alternating maple and mahogany) with a solid maple cap, curved to fit the crown of the soundboard. Bass: Solid maple mounted to cantilevered base.

Scale
Overstrung: combination agraffe; with front and rear duplex. Lower tension scale for longer sustaining tone and longer life of the whole piano. 17,251 kg (38,032 lb) tension.

Made from laminated hardwood faced with spruce. Strong, rugged construction provides a solid mount for the keyframe and action allowing for precise and prolonged action regulation. Large maple dowel ends provide a solid mount for adjustable brass touch-regulating glides. Keybed thickness is 42 mm.
