Vintage Steinway Upright, 1891 Near Completion

Just think: For about the same price as a new Korean made upright, this Steinway has been restored (not rebuilt) to allow yet another generation enjoy its charms.

Scroll further down this blog to see this piano before we started the work.

As can be seen in the fourth photo below, Steinway made a perimeter around the soundboard the same way they do in their grand pianos. It’s a bent laminated rim. Heintzman also did this, thus their term “Grand Piano in Vertical Form”. The difference is that the Steinway here has this grand rim the same thickness as their grand pianos. It’s massive.

In the second photo, you can see the high quality tuning pins and period style piano hammers.

This piano also has an elegant sostenuto system for the middle pedal.
