For more than a century and a half, the worlds 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 worlds musical heritage. Today, more than 98 percent of the worlds 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 their dedication to a single ideal: make the finest pianos in the world. It has never entered their minds to compromise quality. Where some have substituted mass-produced, synthetic components to speed production or reduce costs, Steinway apply technologies and new materials only when they provide proven enhancements in the piano. Steinway adhere to these principles for one reason compromise quality, and you risk the sound, the touch, and ultimately, the integrity of the instrument.
While Steinway adhere to the traditional values of craftsmanship, Steinway & Sons has also consistently led through innovation. The very earliest pianos crafted by Steinway were distinguished by their inventive features many of which helped define the modern piano. Today, each Steinway piano is a summation of our commitment to innovation. Each incorporates over 125 patented features and processes, including the patented Diaphragmatic┬« soundboard, Accelerated Action┬« and Hexagrip┬« pinblock.
A Steinway grand piano takes nearly a year to create. Nothing is hurried. Even the carefully selected woods is seasoned for two years in our yard, kilns, and conditioning rooms before they stabilize at a rigidly specified humidity. The rim of the instruments consists of layers of hard rock maple and mahogany and withstands with our cast-iron plate the enormous amount of tension exerted by the strings. The Diaphragmatic┬« soundboard is made of the highest-grade close-grained, quarter-sawn spruce, which tapers in thickness gently from the centre to the edge, assuring the full, rich Steinway sound.
Each Steinway grand piano, consisting of more than 12,000 individual parts, has its own musical character and is as unique as the individual who plays it. To achieve this distinctive musical character, Steinway & Sons uses only the finest materials and employs the best craftsmen and specialists. An important process is the work of the voicers who create the inimitable, unique sound of the instruments. Each piano ΓÇô a work of art in its own right ΓÇô is the result of a three year journey through craftsmanship which has earned Steinway & Sons a reputation for unsurpassed quality that has stood for generations.
