1922 Steinway & Sons Model B Semi-Concert Grand Piano #216066 | Satin Ebony
Measuring 6’11” in length, the Steinway & Sons Model B Grand Piano is considered by many to be among the world’s most ‘perfect pianos’. The Steinway Model B is in regular production at both the New York and Hamburg Factories and is a common sight in performance and practice environments around the world. Many professional artists continue to select the Model B as the personal practice piano.
Built in 1922, this vintage Model B Grand Piano was crafted during the height of the Steinway’s ‘golden era’. This fine concert level instrument was selected by us as a perfect candidate for a full restoration. Steinway Model B #216066 has undergone an extensive rebuilding process to return it to a like new, performance-ready condition. Full of power and breadth of tone, a restored Model B of this historic era is one that is sure to be a treasured and valued instrument. We are pleased to offer this piano along with a wide selection of other fully rebuilt Steinway Model B Grands.
The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt with new parts. This includes new dimensionally correct Renner wippens and new Renner Premium Blue Point hammers affixed to Renner shanks, and flanges. Renner parts are among the most highly respected in the industry and they construction action parts for Steinway, Fazioli and countless other makers. The action has been fully regulated, voiced and weighed off by our expert piano technicians. Carefully brought up to a stunning concert performance level, the keyboard is incredibly responsive and smooth. From the touch of the key to the lifting of the damper mechanism, ‘like silk’, is a perfect way to describe this instrument. The tone of this piano is full and rich, with a Hamburgesque clarity that lacks any unwanted harshness. New premium music wire and custom copper wound bass strings are coiled to blued Klinke tuning pins. A new hard rock maple pinblock provides optimum tuning stability and a new solid spruce soundboard has been fitted in order to produce the finest quality of tone. This piano exhibits all of the traits expected of a fine Steinway Model B!
The cast iron plate has been expertly re-bronzed and the raised lettering hand detailed. The cabinet has been refinished in a rich satin ebony with multiple coats of hand-rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer. This full filled, closed pore finish has been rubbed out to a beautiful satin sheen. The original nickel hardware has been re-plated and a new fallboard logo decal affixed to the fallboard. This piano is a stunning instrument both musically and cosmetically!Contact us for additional information

“The model B is my favorite of the New York-made Steinways, and the best choice for the serious pianist, recording or teaching studio, or small recital hall.” – Larry Fine, Author of The Piano Book
