Steinway & Sons - Model 'B'
A Steinway model B from the early Edwardian period in a decorated satinwood case. The piano was manufactured in Hamburg in c.1901, but we cannot source who created the beautiful veneer on the case.
It was fully restored in our workshops in Cambridge, including hand French polishing. It was restored in 2001 with a new Steinway & Sons action from Hamburg. The strings were replaced Roslau wire, and it is recognised as the finest available and is used by many of the world’s leading piano manufacturers. The soundboard cracks repaired and the soundboard re-varnished
The result was an instrument that caught the eye and played as if new. The advantage of rebuilding a Steinway is that the design has not changed in basic design in 100 years. There have been improvements mad, but the action is the basically the same and you can fit a new one to and older piano and achieve the touch and feel of a new Steinway
As with all our Steinways we replace the necessary parts with genuine Steinway parts, but with the view that retaining originality is paramount. We are restoring the instrument to its original new state, not making a new piano out of an old one.
