This Essex 5'3'' Baby Grand Piano, Model EGP-155C, was purchased new in the early 2010s by a private owner. It presents a great opportunity to own a beautiful late-model, Steinway-designed baby grand piano at a tremendous savings over the comparable new piano.
As one would expect of a piano of such recent vintage, it is in beautiful cosmetic and mechanical condition. Classic satin ebony finish.
The entry into the family of Steinway–designed pianos, the Essex incorporates Steinway's latest design specifications and engineering standards, as well as the Steinway commitment to excellence developed over 160 years of quality craftsmanship. Every Essex instrument is inspected by a team of highly experienced Steinway technicians before it leaves the factory.
Designed by Steinway & Sons in collaboration with renowned furniture designer William Faber, the Essex has been created as a tribute to the idea that beautiful piano styles and finishes can and should be possible in every price range. With elegant traditional styling and museum-quality finishes, Essex will be a stunning addition to your home. And it is available in an array of models, sizes, and veneers to fit every décor and every lifestyle.
Due to the Steinway-designed Rim Shape, Essex grand pianos are wider at the tail than most other pianos of the same length. This allows for a larger soundboard area, producing a richer sound. The Steinway-designed soundboard is tapered, rather than uniformly thick, to vibrate more freely and provide more tonal volume. Essex pianos have a Steinway-designed, all wood (no plastic) action for proven durability and heightened responsiveness and control. In addition, all Essex pianos feature a Steinway-designed pinblock, strings, plate, backposts/braces, and bridges, as well as many Steinway-specified parts and manufacture procedures. As a result, the Essex is, quite simply, the best piano available in its price range today.
