Essex Grand Pianos designed for the home by Steinway & Sons
Designed by Steinway & Sons in New York, the Essex Grand Pianos are a line of grands using Steinway's most significant design patents and features, developed over their 160+ year history. Designed to compete in the entry- to mid-price ranges, Essex pianos are infused with much of Steinway's DNA, including over 30 design patents and innovations from the storied New York piano manufacturer.
Essex grands are all built with Steinway's wide-tail design and tapered Spruce soundboard for bigger 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 Essex grand rim is significantly thicker than it's direct competitors', resulting in better stability and longevity. Steinway's patented multi-laminated, quartersawn maple pinblock gives the piano superior tuning stability.
Steinway's partnership with with famed American furniture maker Henredon has resulted in exquisite Essex cabinet designs and features not found in other similarly priced grands. This includes elegant music desk styling, beveled lid edges, spade legs and all brass fittings as opposed to plastic common in this price range.
The Essex piano is ideal for the buyer looking for a reasonably priced piano without sacrificing quality due to Steinway's design and materials specifications. Each comes with a 10 year parts and labor warranty and matching bench. Each Essex is prepped and tuned prior to delivery by a Steinway-trained expert staff technician. A second complimentary tuning in the home or studio is included within 60 days after delivery.
Each new Essex 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.
