1951 Steinway & Sons Model D Concert Grand Piano | Juilliard Instrument – Polished Ebony – Restored

The world’s most famous piano. First introduced in 1884 and 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 premiere concert venues in the world, they are just at home in the residences of many Steinway aficionados and advanced pianists. Steinway Model D #334986 was originally purchased and used by the famed Juilliard School’s music division. We were able to obtain and fully restore this high-profile instrument in order to fully return it to a concert-ready status. We now offer this Steinway for your careful consideration.

The cabinet is finished in a high gloss ebony which shines with a mirror-like sheen. The action stack features New York Steinway hammers and new shanks and flanges along with new German Renner wippens. A high-grade keyset produced by Kluge includes extended and reinforced key buttons. New premium steel music wire and custom copper wound bass strings have been coiled to blued Klinke tuning pins. The piano features the original Steinway Factory installed soundboard which has been recapped and repinned. A new custom fitted hard maple pinblock has been installed for optimal stability of tuning. 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 piano responds effortlessly and confidently to the touch of the pianist. 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, with a responsiveness that 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.
