1903 Steinway & Sons Model A-2 Grand Piano #109789 | Satin Ebony
Measuring approx. 6’2″ in length, the Steinway & Sons Model A, Style II Grand Piano has long been a coveted musical instrument. These parlor grand pianos were first built in New York during the late 19th and early 20th century and later were re-introduced in 2005.
Steinway & Sons Model A-II Grand Piano #109789 was built in 1903 at the New York Steinway Factory and was restored by us here at Chupp’s Piano Service. This parlor grand piano features a round arm cabinet with double moldings along the base of the case. The piano sits on Victorian Ice Cream Cone style legs and features a carved pedal lyre. The cabinet was refinished in a rich satin ebony lacquer and has been freshly hand rubbed by our piano refinishers.
The piano’s action was fully rebuilt with new dimensionally correct parts. This includes new German Renner wippens and new hammers, shanks, and flanges. Exacting action regulation and voicing has been completed to ensure a light, responsive touch and rich, full, Steinway quality of tone. The keyboard features the original ivory keytops which have been restored.
The piano was restrung with premium quality music wire and copper wound bass strings. These strings were coiled to nickel plated tuning pins and driven into a new custom fitted hard maple pinblock. A new soundboard of the highest quality spruce has been fabricated and custom fitted to the case. This produces optimal tone and stability. Serving as the structural backbone of the piano, the cast iron plate has been expertly re-bronzed. The brass hardware has been restored and this art case piano looks as stunning as it sounds.
The Best of the Best – The Highest in Craftsmanship
The late 19th and early 20th century saw the ‘golden age’ of piano making reach its peak. Hundreds of piano companies competed to build the finest pianos possible. Pre-WWII era Steinway pianos are the epitome of the craftsmanship that has made the Steinway name so legendary. Here at Chupp’s Piano Service, Inc. our restoration work is focused on returning each vintage piano to a concert level of performance. For over forty years we have brought new life to a countless number of historic grand pianos.
