Boston Baby Grand Piano (2006) - Barely Used
The smallest Boston grand by size, at 5' 1 ½' (156cm), there is nothing small about the sound of this grand, which benefits from a wide-tail design. The piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous Steinway & Sons design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply can’t be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range.
In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.
The piano offers a larger soundboard in comparison to other pianos of the same length, due to its innovative “wide tail” design. The piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. The soundboard is also precisely tapered, which allows it to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of Steinway & Sons — the result is a powerful, sustained tone.
