1906 Steinway model O grand. Oh, so sweet! - Grand Pianos

This 5'10" Steinway model O is a special instrument. As soon as the comprehensive restoration was complete and the piano was pulled up to A-440 concert pitch, we were very impressed with what we heard!! The tone is sweet and mesmerizing....mmmmmmm! 

The amount of detail in the cabinet is tasteful, yet not overstated...a very nice balance. Please view the numerous photos and you'll notice: 

     •  Stylish double half-round moulding around the perimeter of the case
     • Windowpane legs, just a bit more detail than the normal spade leg
     • Quaint little curlicues on the ends of the music rack

A thorough restoration was performed on this piano which included:

     • Cabinet stripped and refinished in hand-rubbed lacquer 
     • Cast iron plate stripped, refinished and all lettering detailed
     • New pinblock, factory sized 2/0 pins, and strings
     • Original spruce soundboard shimmed and refinished
     • New wippens, hammers, shanks and flanges
     • New keytops
     • New damper felt
     • All nickel hardware replated
As with vintage Stradivarius violins, Martin guitars and (yes) Steinway grand pianos, the old spruce is much of what causes the instrument to produce such a lovely, singing tone. The original soundboard was in very good condition with minimal cracks. The cracks were shimmed, preserving about 98% of the original spruce!! Some rebuilders insist on a new soundboard....of course, they charge a pretty penny for one. Do you really want an instrument, or do you want a piano where everything is brand new, including the soundboard? Let your ears be the judge! We have both for you to compare.

It is a bit like trying to make new grapes taste like that vintage bottle of wine.....good luck with that. We have plenty of variety here in Manhattan, Kansas. Pianos in beautiful, all original condition. Restored pianos with new soundboards. Restored pianos with their original spruce soundboards. We have it all. 

Come audition a large selection of quality instruments (we keep about 40 grands in stock) and you'll see why folks from all across the country get their piano from Mid-America Piano. 

Friendly service. Friendly prices.
