Essex Contemporary Console Model EUP108 Ebony Polish

Designed by Steinway & Sons in New York, the Essex Contemporary Console piano is encased in an elegantly sculpted cabinet resulting from Steinway's partnership with with famed American furniture maker Henredon. The styling and curved case and arm design is unique and completely exclusive to Steinway - no other piano manufacturer has an offering like it.

Along with heirloom furniture quality, it also comprises Steinway's most significant design patents and features, developed over their 160+ year history. Designed to compete in the entry price range, this Essex console is infused with much of Steinway's DNA, including over 30 design patents and innovations from the storied New York piano manufacturer. 

Essex uprights are all built with solid, straight-grained Spruce soundboards using Steinway's patented tapered design for bigger, fuller sound. For maximum stability and longevity, the Steinway patented back construction consists of massive beams, placed precisely where the highest tension points are. 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. Steinway's patented multi-laminated, quartersawn maple pinblock gives the piano superior tuning stability.

This Essex console piano is designed for the home and is the most reasonably priced piano offering by Steinway. It comes with a 10 year parts and labor warranty and matching bench. The piano arrives in your home prepped and tuned prior to delivery by a Steinway-trained expert staff technician. A second complimentary tuning in the home is included within 60 days after delivery.

Each new Essex upright also includes a full trade-up certificate to a new Steinway grand or upright piano anytime within 10 years of purchase, thus guaranteeing your trade value.
