1946 Steinway Model D Concert Grand Piano | – Satin Ebony – #319648

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 & Sons Model D #319648 has been expertly restored by Chupp’s Piano Service. This golden-era instrument has undergone a painstaking and careful rebuilding process to return it to its deserved place as a concert-level, concert-ready Steinway grand!

The cabinet is in a traditional, Sketch 380 cabinet design with square arms and tapered spade-style legs. Finished in rich, satin ebony, the piano features the original, restored brass hardware. The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt and includes new German Renner hammers hung on Renner shanks and flanges, along with new wippens and a new damper backaction. 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 new custom-fitted hard maple pinblock holds the 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 – including a number of concert grands. This rare selection allows you to select from some of the finest grand pianos ever crafted!
