1938 Steinway Model A-3 Grand Piano #290887 | Polished Ebony – RestoredSteinway & Sons has created and crafted many well-loved pianos over their long and storied history. The Model A-III ‘Stretch A’ is (in our opinion) one of the finest they ever produced. Measuring approx. 6′ 4 1/2″ in length, the Model A, Style III is longer than the Model A, Style II that is currently manufactured. Crafted only for a select number of years amid the ‘golden age’ of piano manufacturing, this piano is a powerful, yet equally delicate instrument. When rebuilt and properly regulated and voiced, these powerful instruments are on par with even the best Steinway Model B Grands.
Built in 1938, New York Steinway Model A-III #290887 has been expertly rebuilt and stands ready for your consideration. This instrument is in a traditional square arm style cabinet resting on tapered, spade legs. The cabinet has been expertly refinished in a gorgeous high polished ebony polyurethane. This beautiful finish contrasts with the restored, original brass hardware. The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt with all new action parts. New German Renner wippens, shanks, and flanges along with New York Steinway Hammer heads are combined for high responsiveness and tonal performance. The piano features a restored, original damper back action. The original keysticks have been restored and recapped with new premium keytops. The action has been fully regulated, voiced, and weighed off. This process has created a piano that boasts a rich, deep bass section and an overall quality of tone that sings with much power and musicality!
New premium music wire and custom copper wound bass strings are coiled to blued Klinke tuning pins. A new hard maple pinblock provides optimum tuning stability and a new solid spruce soundboard has been fitted in order to produce the finest quality of tone. The backbone of the piano, the cast iron plate, has been expertly re-bronzed. The raised plate lettering has been hand detailed. We are confident that this instrument is suitable for any institution, performance venue, or pianist.
