Design

 
Steinway Action Geometry
When you practice on a Steinway designed action, you develop muscle-memory and technique for playing on the world's finest pianos. Genuine spruce keys and all-maple wood action parts (no platstic). Steinway style pear-shaped hammers, made of premium wool and compression-wired to retain permanent shape, provide superior tone, increased durability, and greater voicing ability.
 

Premium Soundboard with Closing Rims
Soundboard made with class-leading premium spruce, promoting best tone and longer life. Specially-designed grand-type mahogany closing rim evens out the soundboard’s response to all frequencies, eliminating “hot” spots, and emulating shape of grand soundboard. The soundboard is tapered, allowing it to vibrate more freely.

Vertically Laminated Bridges
Patented in 1880 by Theodore Steinway, who noted that replacing a solid bridge with one made from multiple layers of wood "more energetically propagated" vibration from the strings into the soundboard. Although this design is found today on nearly all high-performance pianos, Steinway is the only company to incorporate it in their mid-priced Boston and Essex brand pianos.
 

Massive Staggered-Post Backframe
Drawing from Steinway vertical piano design proven to make a piano last over 150 years, the Essex backframe has massive full-length posts that are staggered to provide more support near the higher tention section of the piano.

Lower-Tension Design
Lower tension design allows strings to vibrate more freely for stronger tone and longer sustain. It also promotes longer piano life.
