1908 Steinway Model B Grand Piano #130490 – Circassian Walnut – Restored

Long considered to be among the world’s most perfect pianos, the Steinway & Sons Model B continues to be the preferred piano for numerous concert artists, institutions, and piano aficionados. Measuring 6’11” in length, these powerful pianos exhibit the very best of quality craftsmanship and piano design. Steinway Model B Grand Pianos are a common and welcome sight in countless performance and highest level practice environments. Weighing an impressive 760 pounds these pianos boast a large soundboard area for a full, powerful sound – yet they do not take up as much room as a larger Semi-Concert C or Concert Model D.

Manufactured during the height of the piano industry’s ‘golden age’, Steinway Model B #130490 has undergone an exacting rebuilding process to return it to its rightful, concert-ready status. The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt with new, highest quality parts. This includes German Renner wippens and new New York Steinway hammers and German Renner shanks, and flanges. 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. This piano features an extremely rare Circassian Walnut cabinet with a deep, beautiful grain pattern. This wood is very popular due to the distinctive and elegant look. Used extensively in the past for everything from furniture to gun stocks, this wood has seen a decrease in supply and is quite rare to find in use today. The 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. Combining visual beauty with an awe-inspiring quality of tone, this Steinway Model B truly lives up to the nickname of ‘the perfect piano.’

Steinway Model B #130490 features a warm and clear tone with a dark bass section, 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 is among the very best looking and sounding Model B grand pianos we have available at our facilities today.
