1931 Steinway & Sons Model D Concert Grand Piano | Concert & Artist Department Instrument – Polished Ebony – Restored

The world’s most famous piano. First introduced in 1884 and still in regular production at both the New York and Hamburg Factories, the Steinway & Sons Model D Concert Grand Piano is the instrument by which all other concert pianos are judged. The pinnacle of Steinway piano design, these instruments measure just under nine feet in length. Often featured on the stages of the most premier concert venues in the world, they are just at home in the residences of many Steinway aficionados and advanced pianists. Steinway Model D #272743 was designated as CD-180 and served as one of the company’s concert pianos designated for use by Steinway Artists through the Steinway Concert & Artist ‘piano bank’. Completed in 1931, this historic instrument is a true vintage gem of the ‘golden era of Steinway Factory quality. We were able to obtain and fully restore this high-profile instrument in order to properly return it to a concert-ready status. We now offer this beautiful, vintage concert piano for your careful consideration.

“A Steinway rebuilt by Chupp’s Piano Service is worthy of the world’s greatest artists and most prestigious stages. But above all, it is worthy of the name Steinway.” – Dr. John Mortensen, Steinway Artist

The cabinet is in a traditional, Sketch 380 cabinet design with square arms and tapered spade-style legs. Finished in rich, high-gloss ebony, the piano features the original, restored brass hardware. The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt and includes new New York Steinway hammers hung on Renner shanks and flanges, along with new wippens and a new damper backaction. A brand new, finely produced keyset by Kluge GmbH includes extended and reinforced key buttons. (Kluge is now part of the Steinway Musical Instruments family of businesses.) New premium steel music wire and custom copper wound bass strings have been coiled to blued Klinke tuning pins. The piano features an original Steinway Factory installed soundboard which has been carefully restored. The soundboard bridges have been re-pinned with nickel-plated bridge pins. The factory-installed hard maple pinblock holds the new, blued Klinke tuning pins tightly for a stable tune. The massive cast iron plate has been expertly re-bronzed and hand-lettered. The original nickel and brass hardware have been replated and restored.



 


Expertly regulated by our piano technicians, this concert instrument responds effortlessly and confidently to the touch of the pianist. Extensive tone regulation has been performed to ensure that the very best is brought out from this instrument. The bass roars to life and the treble rings free and clear. The piano’s tone can be described as wonderfully powerful and possessing a bright clarity that lacks any unwanted harshness.  The action has been carefully weighed off. This produces a touch that is quick and sure. The responsiveness is capable of supporting top artist level repertoires with a superior level of expression. It is sure to fill the far corners of any concert hall and please any discerning pianist! The powerful scale design of the Model D is on full display.

Considered to be the standard by which all other concert pianos are judged, the Steinway & Sons Model D epitomizes historic craftsmanship and pure musicality like no other instrument! This fine concert grand piano is one of several that we proudly feature in our piano rebuilding facility and showroom. Our facilities feature a unique collection of fully restored Steinway & Sons instruments of all sizes. This rare selection allows you to select from some of the finest grand pianos ever crafted.
