Introduced in 1903, the Steinway Model K-52 (52”) Professional Upright features a larger soundboard than many grands, for a more resonant voice. It is the oldest essentially unchanged upright piano design currently in mass production. The modern Model K pianos have essentially the same dimensions and string scale of the original and the structural design has remained the same for well over a century.

This preowned Steinway piano was manufactured at the Steinway & Sons factory in New York in 2012. It is like new condition and has a PianoDisc PMII Player Piano System installed which enables you to play piano music from thousands of song selections available on the market. It is also capable of streaming piano music live from the internet and can be controlled from your iPad. The piano sounds incredible and is an absolute pleasure to perform on.

The longest bass string in the Steinway K upright is longer than the longest bass string in the Steinway Model S (5’1”) grand, at 46 3/8” on the K versus 45 1/2” on the S. This is why this piano is often called the “upright grand”. It requires 12 months to craft a Steinway grand, 10 months for the K-52, employing precisely the same materials and superb workmanship as the grands. It is the only upright with a solid laminated maple closing rim to configure the soundboard into the shape and sound of a baby grand.

Unlike other manufacturers that mass-produce their uprights, Steinway & Sons uprights are handcrafted in the same factory as their grand pianos, using the same techniques, conditioning processes, and craftsmen. The result is one of the world’s finest uprights. One of the last great American piano manufacturers, Steinway & Sons pianos are still made in Long Island, New York and still represent quality American craftsmanship.

This piano has been thoroughly inspected, voiced, regulated, and tuned at by our shop here at Atlantic Music Center and it comes with a matching bench.

If you are looking for a preowned Steinway K-52 Upright Piano, this piano offers incredible value for the price and in an almost new condition that insures that you will receive many years of service before any parts need replacement.
