Steinway & Sons Model B Grand Piano | Satin Ebony #478951 – Teflon Free!
The Steinway & Sons Model B Grand Piano is often called the ‘perfect piano.’ Measuring 6’11” in length, these semi-concert grand instruments are often the preferred choice of professional pianists and top institutions. Steinway Model B #478951, certainly lives up to this fine reputation.
Built in 1982, this ‘seven foot’ grand piano is in excellent, original condition. Crafted during the transition out of the infamous ‘Teflon-era’, this piano is 100% Teflon free! The piano’s spruce soundboard and maple pinblock are both factory original and are in excellent condition. The soundboard has retained its crown and is free from cracks. The pinblock grips the nickel plated tuning pins tightly for a stable tuning. NEW Mapes Custom Bass Strings have been installed which brings the bass section of this piano up to a higher standard. The rumble and roar of the bass section in this piano is truly breathtaking!
The cabinet finish has touched up and hand rubbed by our piano refinishers. This has returned the exterior of this instrument to an incredibly clean condition that rivals even a refinished piano!
The original Steinway action parts [hammers, shanks, flanges, and wippens] are still in place and our expert piano technicians have completed extensive action regulation and voicing to ensure a fantastic level of both touch and tone. This piano has a full and clear quality of tone with a level of clarity that is highly sought after. The piano’s action responds with quickness and accuracy and this piano performs at the level expected of a piano bearing the name of Steinway. This piano was built during the final days of the transition away from the infamous Teflon bushings, so you don’t have to worry about any Teflon parts in this piano. All combined, this piano is an unusually good bargain and comes with free local ground floor delivery and a three-year warranty from Chupp’s Piano Service.
Since its introduction, the Steinway Model B has built a well-deserved reputation as a powerful instrument capable of both force and nuance. It is no surprise that we have seen continued demand for these amazing, vintage pianos!
