Steinway Model M Grand Piano #285065 | Satin Ebony – Very Good Condition

Steinway Model M Grand Piano #285065 was built in 1936 at the New York Steinway & Sons Factory. This 5’7″ ‘baby’ grand piano was built during the ‘golden age’ of Steinway quality and was partially rebuilt sometime in the past. These small medium grand pianos are among the most popular pianos ever produced by Steinway. These instruments continue to be highly popular due to their balance of small size yet powerful performance and are at home in both personal and institutional use.

In overall good condition, the piano features the original factory soundboard. There is one crack that runs underneath the treble section area but does not appear to cause any unwanted buzzing and does not affect the tone.The piano’s action has had new genuine Steinway hammers shanks and flanges installed. Our piano technicians will go through the action conducting regulation and voicing work to ensure a pleasant touch and tone. The piano retains its original ivory and ebony keytops. Refinished in a matte/satin ebony, the cabinet is in overall very good condition. The piano features the original brass hardware. This Steinway Model M is in very presentable shape both mechanically and cosmetically. This piano could be purchased and played as it sits or we could complete rebuilding work to your preferences. It is your decision! We recommend that the main priority if you request any rebuilding work is to restore the ‘belly’ of the piano. Below is a list of work that entails during a full restoration.
