True Excellence By Design

True Excellence By Design

Hard Rock Maple Inner Rim

The rim contributes to the stability of the piano, offering support for the soundboard. The outer rim consists of several layers of mahogany, and the inner rim of the Boston grand is made of hard rock maple. This high-quality hardwood is pressed with horizontally oriented grains, providing more stability, and exceptional power and richness of power.

Wide-Tail

The wide-tail design of Boston grands is a special Steinway & Sons innovation that creates more surface area in the soundboard. This enriches the sound, giving the pianist the impression of playing on a larger piano. Boston grands are wider at the tail than most pianos of the same length –allowing a larger soundboard area and producing a richer sound. The larger soundboard area also permits better placement of the bass bridge – which yields more volume, greater tone, and a bass that sings.

Soundboard

High-grade, straight-grained, quarter-swan spruce is used for its resonant qualities and for its high strength-to-mass ratio. The soundboard is solid and not laminated, creating the best resonance and projection of sound. The Boston soundboard has tapered thickness from bass to treble. A thinner soundboard in the bass area vibrates more freely. So you get a bigger, richer, fuller tone.

Pinblock

Octagrip™ pinblock made of 11 layers of hard rock maple — glued in different grain angles of 60 degrees — affording the tuning pins greater stability under tension and enabling the piano to stay in tune longer.

Technical
Braces

Radiating braces solidify the piano’s structure. Their triangular layout provides more support than parallel designs. This rigid system improves tuning stability and soundboard crown retention, and lengthens 3 braces.

Ribs

Made from durable spruce to assure strong and constant support of the strings bearing down on the soundboard. Ribs are fully let-in to the inner rim to support the important soundboard crown and prevent the piano from losing its tone. Number of ribs: 11

Bridges

Treble: Vertically laminated (alternating maple and mahogany) with a solid maple cap, curved to fit the crown of the soundboard. Bass: Solid maple mounted to cantilevered base.

Scale

Overstrung; combination of agraffe, with front and rear duplex. Rescaled bass and treble for lower tension scale for increased sustain, better tone clarity, and deeper clearer bass. 17,445 kg (38,460 lb) tension.

Plate

Cast from grey iron, bronze-painted and lacquered. Vacuum cast. Tuning Pins Nickel-plated steel, cut threaded.

Hammers

Premium wool topfelt over premium wool underfelt. Weight of topfelt: 9.5 kg (20.9 lb). Compression-wired to retain permanent shape. Mahogany moldings. Tapered hornbeam hammershanks. Computer-designed pear-shaped hammers with reinforced shoulders result in superior tone, increased durability and greater voicing ability.

Action

Solid maple and hornbeam (all wood, no plastic) for all moving parts. Steinway profile-shaped flanges, extruded aluminum action rails for increased stability and less frequent regulation. Steinway action geometry provides superior touch.

Keys

Genuine spruce, individually balanced and weighted. Synthetic ivory and ebony key covers. New synthetic ebony has ebony-like surface texture and appearance that absorbs perspiration from the fingers. The fine synthetic ivory of the white keys has the same properties of friction, porosity, conductivity, and appearance as ivory.

Pedals

Heavy solid brass castings. Soft, full sostenuto and damper (sustaining).
