“THE PERFECT PIANO”
Balanced. Versatile. The perfect combination of size and performance.
The Steinway & Sons Model B Grand Piano, currently dubbed a ‘music room grand’ by Steinway & Sons, measures 6’11” in length. The Steinway Model B is often called “the perfect piano” and for good reason. It is considered a near perfect blend of size, power and overall versatility making this instrument a solid choice for anywhere from an intimate setting, a teaching studio or a huge concert venue. Larger than a Model S, M, L, or A, Model B grand pianos command a powerful presence. Introduced in 1878, these pianos have been in constant production at both the New York and Hamburg Steinway Factories. The first Model B Grands were based on its direct ancestor the Monitor Grand [AKA the Style 1.]
William Steinway in a letter to dealers noted the new Model B’s ‘improved interior construction.” Time has proven him correct. Featuring a deep, robust bass section and a clear, bell-like overall tone, these pianos are sure to be the musical centerpiece of any room it is placed within.
A consistent favorite of professional pianists, Steinway Model B Grand Pianos are commonly chosen as their preferred home practice pianos due to their clear and beautiful tone and responsive touch. Weighing an impressive 760 pounds these pianos boast a large soundboard area for a full, powerful sound – yet they do not take up as much room as a larger Semi-Concert C or Concert Model D. This accommodates your space, yet refuses to compromise on the advantages of playing a larger piano. For those looking for a truly grand piano for home, recording studio, serious practice or your professional venue, the Model B may just be ‘the perfect piano.’
“Steinway Model B Grand Pianos combine Steinway’s legendary quality into a truly amazing and versatile instrument. These respected ‘music room grand’ pianos are a wonderful mix of visual beauty and true musicality that is extremely difficult to beat.”
“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.” – Larry Fine, Author of The Piano Book

“There was a tremendous amount of research and development activity in the piano business in the nineteenth century. The result of this was that all fine piano manufacturers wound up with the same set of basic acoustic engineering principles which seemed to produce the best results. These same manufacturers, in applying these basic principles, also wound up with the same ‘ideal’ size for a piano – a Grand within an inch or two of seven feet long.” – Henry Z. Steinway
