The Steinway & Sons Model B – The World’s “Perfect” Piano
For over 160 years, the name “Steinway” has represented the finest quality in the piano industry. Founded by Henry E. Steinway, the company quickly became a leader in both craftsmanship and innovation. One of the company’s most legendary pianos is the ‘seven-foot’ Steinway Model B. This model of musical instrument is found in homes, institutions and performance venues around the world. View the infographic below to learn a bit more about this legendary piano.

The Model B is the third largest Steinway Grand in regular production.
Production has been regular since 1878.
The Model B is built in both New York and Hamburg
The Model B Grand’s direct ancestor is the Monitor Grand, names for the Union Navy’s ironclad warship.
Early Model B Grands featured 85 note keyboards
The first Model B with an 88 note keyboard was built in 1891 at the New York Factory.
Specifications: Measures Approx. 6’11” in length. Weights Approx. 750 lbs. Current Classification; “Classic Grand”.
The Model B is my favorite of the New York-made Steinways, and
the best choice for the serious pianist, recording or teaching studio,
or small recital hall.
