The Famous Steinway & Sons Design
All Boston grand pianos share the wide tail design. This innovation by Steinway makes a wider case possible, to create a bigger soundboard area, giving the piano player the impression of playing on a larger piano. The result will please both the player and the listener with a richer sound experience.
The touch found on Boston grand pianos is extremely responsive, due to the Steinway-designed geometry found in the all-wood action fitted in each model. This sensitive and responsive touch along with the incredibly efficient soundboard allow for a dynamic range not found in far more expensive pianos.
Boston grand pianos feature a bracing system that ensures their durability and longevity by handling the tremendous tension in the most efficient way possible. This structural integrity can give Boston piano owners complete confidence that they will enjoy their piano for a lifetime.
Boston upright pianos are marvelous musical instruments that are the inspiration and the unique, proprietary design of Steinway & Sons. Each model features an all-wood action, with Steinway‑designed geometry that results in incredible sensitivity and responsiveness.
Each model also features a solid Sitka spruce soundboard, which is the most resonant material available for this purpose. The soundboard itself has been strategically designed so as to work as efficiently as possible, thus producing a rich and pleasing tone… with far longer sustain than many other upright pianos. The construction of these pianos (the size and strategic placement of the backposts being a perfect example) is such that if properly cared for, they will provide musical pleasure and enrichment for a lifetime.
Available in a variety of sizes and finishes, these pianos are a perfect addition to any musical or educational facility or home.The touch found on Boston grand pianos is extremely responsive, due to the Steinway-designed geometry found in the all-wood action fitted in each model.
