What We Think 

The  Essex  EGP155C  Grand  Piano  is  of  classic  design,  first  introduced  by  Steinway  &  Sons  in  1900.  This  particular  model  is  made  with  a  Kewazinga  Bubinga  finish-  a  timber  from  West  Africa  identified  from  its  red  colour  streaked  with  dark  purple.  This  is  a  beautiful  piano  with  a  huge  sound  and  would  make  a  fantastic  feature  in  anyone’s  home!

Designed by Steinway & Sons in collaboration with renowned furniture designer William Faber, the Essex has been created as a tribute to the idea that beautiful piano styles and finishes can and should be possible in every price range. With elegant traditional styling and museum-quality finishes, Essex will be a stunning addition to your home.

The Essex incorporates the latest design and engineering enhancements from Steinways' dedicated research and development team. By utilizing specially engineered materials, large-scale production techniques, and carefully selected manufacturing environments, the Essex is able to deliver a level of musical performance previously unattainable in its price range.

Due to the Steinway-designed Rim Shape, Essex grand pianos are wider at the tail than most other pianos of the same length. This allows for a larger soundboard area, producing a richer sound. The Steinway-designed soundboard is tapered, rather than uniformly thick, to vibrate more freely and provide more tonal volume. Essex pianos have a Steinway-designed, all wood (no plastic) action for proven durability and heightened responsiveness and control. In addition, all Essex pianos feature a Steinway-designed pinblock, strings, plate, backposts/braces, and bridges, as well as many Steinway-specified parts and manufacture procedures. As a result, the Essex is, quite simply, the best piano available in its price range today.
