1914 Steinway & Sons Model A, Style II Grand Piano #165814The Steinway & Sons Model A continues to be one of the most preferred models offered by the legendary Steinway & Sons Piano Company. First introduced for sale in 1878, the Model A has undergone several design changes and adjustments throughout its long life. The Model A was not built at the New York Steinway Factory for much of the 1900s with production continuing in Hamburg. The Model A2 was recently reintroduced by the New York Factory in 2005. Measuring 6’2″ in length, these ‘parlor grands’ offer a wonderfully balanced scale design that is at home in residences and performance venues alike.
Crafted during the rise of the golden era of piano manufacturing, Steinway & Sons Model A-II #165814 has undergone a careful rebuilding and restoration process to return it to a high-performance level. This instrument was built in 1914 during the crossover from the Model A-2 to A-3. Thus, this instrument is among the last historic Model A-2 Grands built in the New York Steinway Factory! The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt with new, highest-quality parts. This includes German Renner wippens, new Hamburg-style Renner hammers, shanks, and flanges. A new damper back action has been installed and adjusted for optimal performance. The action has been fully regulated and voiced by our technicians. New premium music wire and custom copper wound bass strings have been coiled to blued Klinke tuning pins. A new custom-fitted pinblock made of hard rock maple has been installed as well as a new close-grained, solid spruce soundboard for optimum quality of tone.
The massive cast iron plate, the backbone of the piano, has been expertly re-bronzed and hand-lettered. The piano’s cabinet is in a modern style and features notched, square arms, and a pointed music desk. The flame mahogany cabinet has been expertly refinished in a closed pore, hand-rubbed lacquer. The original solid brass hardware has been expertly restored and contrasts beautifully against the rich, natural wood cabinet.
Steinway Model A #165814 features a powerful, musical quality of tone, combined with a sought-after clarity in the tenor and treble. The piano’s action has been weighed off to correct, concert standards. This ensures a responsive, performance-level touch. Expert regulation and voicing have been completed by our piano technicians to ensure that this piano performs at the level expected of a piano bearing the name of ‘Steinway.’ This art case instrument is a true jewel, and is sure to be the showpiece of any room it is placed in!Contact us for additional information
