STEINWAY & SONS pianos today are still distinguished by founder Henry E. Steinway's guiding principle: “Build the best piano possible.... Make no compromise in quality.” Where some have substituted mass-produced, synthetic components to speed piano production or reduce costs, we apply technologies and new materials only when they provide proven enhancements in the piano. Compromise quality, and you risk the sound, the touch, and ultimately, the integrity of the instrument. Simply put, Steinway pianos remain handcrafted because our handcraftmanship produces instruments of the highest quality.
Pre-owned, vintage, and restored steinway & sons pianos are often prized for their unique beauty and enduring value. When considering a used steinway, be sure to work with an official steinway dealer and insist on a guarantee that your instrument is comprised solely of steinway parts. Most steinway dealers offer a range of used grand and upright pianos. In addition, steinway & sons operates a large restoration facility at its factory and provides factory-certified pre-owned instruments.
Today, Steinway remains at the helm of piano innovation. Over the past decade, the company’s improvements in craftsmanship and technology have resulted in greater precision, greater uniformity of touch and greater sound quality — ensuring that today’s Steinway is the finest Steinway yet.
