Boston Grand Pianos - Designed by Steinway & Sons in New York
Steinway has designed 3 categories of Boston Grand Pianos in their new "Performance Edition II" line up - baby grands (2 models), grands (2 models) and small concert grand (one model). The middle category comprises of a 5'10" size and a larger 6'4" size. These two pianos are ideal for many different uses, but are generally sought after by individual players and institutions looking for the best possible tone and touch without the space constraints of a typical smaller baby grand buyer.
Designed by Steinway & Sons in New York, the Boston line of grand pianos was originally designed nearly 30 years ago with the rigorous use of institutions in mind. Numerous colleges and universities then, as now, were interested in becoming All-Steinway schools and the mid-priced Boston piano would help that dream become a reality.
Individuals are equally attracted to Boston pianos for their homes because of the quality of design, materials and manufacturing. Comprised of Steinway's most advanced design patents and features, developed over their 160+ year history, Boston pianos were the first mid-priced pianos to be infused with much of Steinway's DNA.
All sizes of Boston grands are designed with over 30 Steinway patents and designs, including a wide-tail scale design and custom tapered solid Spruce soundboard for fuller sound. The action geometry is identical to Steinway's patented accelerated action with all hard-rock maple wood action parts (no plastic) for the best tactile feel and response. The inner rim of the Boston piano is made with hard rock maple, the densest wood available for absolutely superior stability and tonal projection. Steinway's patented Octagrip pinblock of quartersawn maple for tuning stability, is the latest innovation in today's Boston pianos.
Each Boston grand piano, regardless of size, is an extremely high quality, mid-priced piano with Steinway and Sons' design from the ground up. Each comes with a 10 year parts and labor warranty and matching bench. Each Boston is concert prepped and tuned prior to delivery by our Steinway-trained expert staff technicians. A second complimentary tuning in the home or studio is included within 60 days after delivery.
Each new Boston grand also includes a full trade-up certificate to a new Steinway grand piano anytime within 15 years of purchase, thus guaranteeing your trade value.
