“THE PERFECT PIANO”
Balanced. Versatile. The perfect balance between 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 were based on its ancestor the Monitor Grand [AKA the Style 1.]
William Steinway in a letter to dealers noted the new Model B’s ‘improved interior construction.” 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 refused to compromise on the advantages of playing a larger piano. For those looking for a grand piano for home, a 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 pianos are truly a wonderful mix of visual beauty and true musicality.”
“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
