1987 Steinway & Sons Model M Grand Piano | Ebony – Refurbished #505128
Measuring 5’7″ in length, the Steinway & Sons Model M Grand Piano is considered by many to be the standard-setting ‘baby’ grand piano. First introduced at the New York Steinway Factory in 1911, these medium-sized instruments offer a balance between manageable size and high-level performance. Upon acquiring this instrument, our technicians found it to be in excellent structural condition. This, combined with its relatively young age made it suitable for refurbishment. The piano’s action includes the original factory parts including the original hammers, shanks, flanges, wippens and Kluge keyset. The original key coverings have been retained and the solid ebony sharps restored. This piano’s action has been regulated and voiced to allow for a responsive touch and the classic Steinway quality of tone. New premium music wire and custom-manufactured copper wound bass strings have been coiled to blued tuning pins. These were fitted into the original hard maple pinblock. The piano’s original solid spruce soundboard has been retained.
The backbone of the piano, the cast iron plate, has been expertly refinished in a rich bronze lacquer. The cabinet’s original finish has been expertly hand-rubbed to return it to a like-new satin sheen. Painstakingly refurbished and prepped, this golden age Steinway ‘baby’ grand fully embodies the traits expected of a world-class musical instrument. Our technicians spend the extra hours required to ensure this piano performs at a level worthy of your investment.
Our piano rebuilding process is tailored with the primary focus being the performance of the piano as a musical instrument, capable of supporting the artistry of any pianist – amateur or professional. We have specialized in Steinway piano restoration for over four decades and continue to advance the high level of craftsmanship that was once standard during the ‘golden age’ of piano quality. This piano has been prepped and regulated and is ready for you to evaluate today. We are confident that you will be quite pleased with this standard-setting Steinway instrument.
