A classic Hamburg Steinway!

Originally crafted in Hamburg, Germany c.1910, this Steinway Model C 7'5'' Semi-Concert Grand Piano is a prime example of why Steinway continues to be the preeminent name in the pianocraft worldwide.

Rare Hamburg Steinway craftsmanship.

Members of the Steinway family opened a factory in Hamburg, Germany in 1880, and it is still in operation today.  For much of its history the Hamburg facility has operated more or less independently from the New York factory, and instruments produced there, while bearing many similarities to their New York counterparts, have some notable differences which make them especially rare and sought-after in the Americas.

The rarely-encountered Model C

It's a rare treat to encounter a Steinway C in optimal playing condition in the United States.  The Model C was designed as a scaled-down version of the 9' Model D, so pianists found it to be a very favorable alternative to the D with a lower price and size commitment. Production of the C ended in New York in the 1930s; it is believed that the model was discontinued in an attempt to bolster sales of the larger and more expensive D.  However, the C continued to be produced in Hamburg, and it is still available as a new option in the European market (where it is known as the C-227).

Treasured, restored, and maintained by a private owner.

This instrument has been treasured by a single family since the mid-1950s. They were diligent and respectful owners, and performed a variety of restoration work on the instrument over the years to maintain its playability.

Based on our inspection, restoration work performed on this instrument within the last few decades includes:

  • New pinblock
  • New strings and tuning pins
  • New understring felts
  • Restored and repaired original Steinway soundboard
  • Steinway & Sons historic soundboard decal applied
  • New Renner action (wippens, hammers, shanks, and flanges)
  • French polished rosewood cabinet
  • Steinway & Sons historic fallboard decal applied

The result is a lovely and well-preserved instrument that will undoubtedly become a prized addition to its new home.

Condition notes

An area of the rear lid exhibits some cosmetic lightening due to sun exposure; these are extremely common in wood-finish pianos and should not likely diminish the overall visual presentation in most settings.
