Steinway & Sons Model O Grand Piano

At 5` 10 3/4" (180cm) in length, this grand piano has been a source of joy and inspiration since the very early 1900`s. Its sound is particularly warm and rich ΓÇô far beyond what one would expect from a grand piano that is under 6 feet in length.

This piano is available for order and can be viewed in our piano gallery at our Bolton store.

We offer a wide range of finance packages, which means that owning one of these stunning pianos couldn`t be simpler! Simply contact us for full details and we will be happy to provide a quote. We also offer a comprehensive range of tuning packages to meet your personal requirements, carried out my our fully qualified piano tuner, and again can provide details on request.


Full details of the Steinway Model O Grand Piano are:

Rim
Made entirely from hard rock maple; 13 laminations; continuous bent, both inner & outer form one single rim; unequaled strength and stability. Thickness: 2 7/16" (6.19 cm)

Braces
3 solid spruce with a volume of 1,253 cu. In. (20,528cm3); Spruce provides tensile strength with less weight. Maple dowels fasten braces to rim producing a single homogenous foundation upon which is built the entire tonal component. The S & S iron wedge anchors brace ends securely to crossblock assuring permanent rim posture.

Pinblock
Hexagrip patented design; 7 laminations of quartered hardrock maple stock. Grain symmetrically distributed at successive angles of 45, 90, employing grain direction uniformly around the circumference of the tuning pin to provide the ultimate in pin grippage. As a result of this exclusive design, the tuning pin has smoother movement under torque, a more uniform retaining action for solid setting, and a piano which will hold its tuning longer.

Soundboard
Created like the soundboard of violins to give a free and even response throughout the entire scale, it is so constructed as to be 8 mm thick in the center and tapered to 5 mm as it approaches the rim and outer case before being DOUBLE CROWNED. This design permits complete freedom of movement, while acting as a homogenous unit to displace a greater amount of air, thereby creating a richer and more lasting tonal response. Close-grained, quarter-sawn Sitka or European spruce, a wood having unusual stability and vibrance under stress and vibration, is used exclusively for the soundboard.

Ribs
Made from durable, resinous sugar pine to assure strong and constant support of string down-bearing on the soundboard. Rib ends are hand-fitted into their mounting surfaces virtually locking in the important soundboard crown.

Bridges
Treble: Hard rock maple vertical laminations capped with solid hard rock maple; planed to prescribed height, graphite coated, drilled, and notched by hand for precise individual string bearing. Design defies splitting. Bass: Solid rock maple mounted to cantilevered and splined base. Maple doweled, glued, and screwed to soundboard.

Scale
Overstrung; combination agraffe; Front AND rear duplex. Tension: 41,888 lbs. (19,000 kg)

Plate
Sturdy gray iron; filled, CNC-milled, and sealed; bronzed and lacquered.

Tuning Pins
Premium blued steel with rust-resistant, nickeled heads.

Strings
Treble: Ten whole & one-half sizes from high-tensile Swedish steel. Bass: Swedish steel core wire wound with pure copper. Longest, Agraffe/bridge: 54 1/8" (137 cm)

Hammers
Premium wool top felt over premium wool under felt; treated to resist insects and moisture. Compression-wired to retain permanent shape. Hard rock maple hammer moldings and shanks.

Dampers
Horizontal-cut premium wool for effective dampening. Maple heads for endurance.

Action
White, quarter-sawn maple parts are bushed with specially treated wool action cloth for freedom from friction. Parts are anchored in hard maple dowels housed in inflexible seamless brass tubing to assure precise & stable regulation. Exclusive single, combination phosphor bronze repetition & fly spring provides constant, crisp touch response. Specially designed to respond 14% faster fortissimo & 6% faster pianissimo by using an exclusive combination of half-round balance rail bearings and strategically placed key leads.

Keys
European spruce, individually weighed-off. Chip-proof, stain-resistant coverings for naturals; slip-proof, delicately abraded ebonized sharps. Tough, durable Linden wood buttons reinforce keys over balance rail permitting maximum tonal power with every strike. Longest: 19 (48.3 cm)

Keybed
Made from planks of stable, quarter-sawn spruce. Horizontal planks are freely mortised together, while their ends are permanently mortised into vertical planks, presenting a vented system for humidity escapement while allowing for necessary expansion and contraction. Front center is crowned contrasting the reverse-crowned action frame for snug fit. This design intensifies key movement and prevents "slapping" during heavy playing. Large beech dowel ends provide a solid mount for adjustable brass touch-regulating screws. Thickness: 1 3/4" (4.45 cm)

Pedals
Heavy, solid brass. Soft, sustaining, and full sostenuto.
