This Boston 6'4" grand piano, model GP193, was privately owned and is ready for a new home. It's an extraordinary opportunity to own a handsome, late model professional-grade piano with the unmatched legacy of Steinway & Sons, all at an exceptional value.
It's a fantastic musical instrument who's tone is deep, full and resonant with an impressive bass. At 6'4" in length it has plenty of power with a depth of tone that undoubtedly comes from Steinway's unique design elements. It's a joy to play.
Like all Boston pianos, this instrument is a wonderful marriage of Kawai’s craftsmanship and Steinway’s unique musical design elements and brand legacy.
The Boston piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous Steinway & Sons design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply can’t be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range.
In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.
The Boston grand piano offers a larger soundboard in comparison to other pianos of the same length, due to its innovative “wide tail” design. This wider construction of the case means that a 5’ 10” Boston grand has the same soundboard area as a typical 6’ 2” grand piano, creating the power, richness, and feel of playing a much larger piano.
Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of Steinway & Sons — the result is a powerful, sustained tone.
Fine veneers underlie the elegance of the Boston pianos — available in walnut and mahogany satin or polished finishes, as an alternative to the classic ebonized — all designed to delight the eye and enhance the player’s experience.
