This piano has been regulated and voiced to a high standard. The bass is warm and rich with a clear, lyrical mid-range and treble. Excellent dynamic range. Soft, controllable pianissimo with all the Steinway power and tonal complexity at fortissimo. The origin of the Model B dates to 1871 with the development of the Steinway 85-note Style 1 grand piano. Modified and renamed the Model B in 1878, it has enjoyed unrivaled renown as a performance instrument in countless venues from the teaching studio to the recording studio, and the concert hall to the home. Today the Model B represents the second largest concert grand piano handcrafted at the Steinway factory in New York City. Greg White Da Capo Piano Service Belmont CA (408)981-2778
