WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A STEINWAY PIANO?

If you replace most of the parts of a Steinway piano with non-Steinway parts, is there any reason to believe it will play and last like a Steinway piano?

 

In our opinion, a Steinway piano can come from nowhere else but the Steinway Factory itself, where over 300 specially trained craftspeople, like 42-year veteran Eddie Carrasco and millions of dollars of equipment have been brought together for one purpose: to make the finest piano in the world.
We have seen every level of restored Steinway, produced by the weekend warrior to large rebuilding shops and there is no question in our minds that the Steinway Factory itself is the only place to get a genuine, restored Steinway piano.
Other piano rebuilders, no matter how well intentioned, simply cannot duplicate the Steinway process. This may be why so many rebuilders use non-Steinway parts when they rebuild a Steinway.

  

 

THE NEWEST STEINWAYS ARE THE BEST STEINWAYS

“I’ve been playing Steinway pianos exclusively for many years...

They keep getting better every year.”

 

~Lang Lang

 

Beware when someone tells you that “they just don’t make them like they used to.” The only people who we hear saying this are those who sell rebuilt pianos! In fact, 98% of piano soloists choose new Steinway & Sons pianos for their performances. Today’s Steinways are the best Steinways, so why not get a restored piano with the newest Steinway components and made by the same people who make the genuine article?

 

COMPARE FOR YOURSELF

The chart below was compiled from the website of a well-advertised Northeast rebuilder and retailer. Their pianos say Steinway on the outside, but they say something entirely different on the inside! You do not have to be a piano expert to see the difference. The best part: you don’t have to pay more for a Genuine Steinway Piano. Our Genuine Steinway Factory Restored Pianos are priced about the same or less!
