Simply fantastic.

The Steinway D stands alone in the pantheon of concert grand pianos, the standard against which all other performance instruments are measured. This Model D was handcrafted in New York in 1988 and has been privately owned and well-maintained by a single owner.  All original Steinway parts are intact and in good working order.

The instrument is in beautiful condition visually, mechanically, and musically.  It is a thrilling piano to play, with a power and expressive range that is reserved for only a few pianos.  Touch and tone are excellent.  Visually, it will be a welcome addition to any setting, with a handsome finish and clean, bright interior.

Rare German Steinway action.

This instrument features a specially-imported German Steinway action, typically encountered only in Hamburg Steinways.  It produces a tone which is especially rich and complex.  We'd love to tell you more about the unique qualities of this action that make it particularly unique - please Ask Us a Question or call us at 800-264-6614 to learn more about it.

This custom action was available at the time this piano was built for an additional $5000; it makes this instrument an exceptional value.

Remarkable savings.

With the Steinway D currently priced new at over $198,000, we're confident that you'll appreciate the amazing value this beautiful preowned piano offers.

About the Steinway Model D 9' Concert Grand (from the manufacturer)

For more than a century and a half, the world’s most accomplished pianists have preferred to express their musical genius on Steinway & Sons pianos. The list includes the giants in classical, jazz, and popular music; the men and women who have shaped the world’s musical heritage. Today, more than 98 percent of the world’s active concert pianists choose to perform on Steinway pianos. The joy of playing and owning a Steinway piano, however, is not the exclusive domain of the virtuosi. Rather, it is a world open to all who share a love of music, fine craftsmanship and enduring quality.

That which distinguishes Steinway pianos, more than all else, is summed up in our dedication to a single ideal: make the finest pianos in the world. It has never entered our minds to compromise quality. Where some have substituted mass-produced, synthetic components to speed production or reduce costs, we apply technologies and new materials only when they provide proven enhancements in the piano. We adhere to these principles for one reason — compromise quality, and you risk the sound, the touch, and ultimately, the integrity of the instrument.

At 8' 11¾" (274 cm) in length, the majestic Model D — the pinnacle of concert grands — is the overwhelming choice of the world's greatest pianists and for anyone who demands the highest level of musical expression.
