TOTALLY REBUILT art case Steinway A
1896 is one of Steinway's very best years. Power and bass without being overly powerful for home use. This makes this piano one of the most rare and desirable pianos on every made. This piano has just been completely & professionally rebuilt by master Steinway trained technicians. No expense have been spared in the this complete restoration.
This level of quality and craftsmanship just isn't found in most newer instruments. These “Model A” grand pianos are often considered to be the finest in piano design for the serious musician. This piano has been restored to like new condition inside and out, and is perfect in every detail. MSRP: $75,100 on a Steinway A (basic ebony plain spade leg) and much more for an art case piano like this
All Hardware has been upgraded to NICKEL plated
NEW Nickel plated tuning pins
NEW Steinway strings
Action fully restored all new felts/pins and with only Steinway parts (not Renner)
NEW Steinway hammers/shanks/flanges/felts etc
Plate has been re-guilded to NEW
NEWLY refinished art case flame mahogany, refinished inside/out
Original 'elephant' keys have been cleaned and restored
Soundboard has been shimmed (not replaced)... many purists consider heart transplants risky and the same is true for soundboards... this one only needed shimming to make it beautifully resonant and like new
Although it has been fully regulated and tuned several times prior to shipping, perfectionists may want to do further tuning and minor regulation, upon arrival and acclimation to your environment. As close as it gets to completely NEW.
You won't find a better Steinway for the money. Actually you won't find a better piano period. Bosendorfer, Bechstein and Steingraber may have those that prefer them but at this level of perfection it is only about personal preference... not measurable differences in materials or craftsmanship.
