1969 Steinway & Sons Model B Grand Piano | Walnut – #416308

Measuring just under seven feet in length, Steinway & Sons Model B Grand Pianos have become beloved worldwide. Some even call it the ‘perfect piano’ due to the beautifully balanced performance a ‘seven-foot’ piano provides. Steinway Model B Grands are selected by professional and amateur pianists alike as their personal practice pianos. It is not uncommon to see these pianos gracing concert stages as well! These instruments were first introduced in 1878 and production has been consistent since that date at both the Hamburg and New York Steinway Factories.

Steinway Model B #416308 was built in 1969 at the Steinway & Sons Factory in New York. The traditional square-arm cabinet features a detailed, yet pleasant walnut veneer that has been refinished in a beautiful satin lacquer. The instrument rests on spade-style legs that terminate in solid brass casters. The classic contrast of the classic wood cabinet with rich brass hardware is a combination that goes with virtually any décor!

The piano’s action has been rebuilt with the finest quality parts including new wippens and Hamburg-style Renner hammers and new shanks and flanges. New German Kluge keytops have been installed on the original keysticks. The original ebony sharps have been carefully sanded and polished for a consistent feel across the keyboard.

Our piano technicians have completed extensive action and tone regulation to bring out a responsive touch and the iconic, New York Steinway tone. A new Renner damper back action has been installed and regulated while the damper heads have been refinished with new damper felts affixed. New premium music wire and custom copper wound bass strings are coiled to blued Klinke tuning pins. The original Steinway Factory spruce soundboard has been expertly retained and restored and the original hard maple pinblock holds the new, blued tuning pins tightly and securely for a stable tune.

Expertly regulated and voiced, this piano boasts a wonderfully responsive touch and offers a versatile range of tones that can be soft and tender or bold and commanding. This instrument evokes the sense of elegance and refinement expected of a Steinway & Sons piano.

The massive cast iron plate, the backbone of the piano, has been expertly re-bronzed and hand-lettered. The original hardware has been restored and a matching fallboard logo decal has been embedded into the lacquer. Combining visual beauty with an awe-inspiring quality of tone, this Heirloom quality Steinway Model B truly lives up to the nickname of ‘the perfect piano.’
