This one-owner Steinway & Sons Model B was manufactured in 1991 at the Steinway factory in New York.  It is in original condition with all original parts and components in excellent shape, and it required very little work other than detailing, voicing of the hammers, regulation of the action, and tuning.  It is uncommon to find a late model Steinway B, especially in this condition, and this one is a real find.  This piano possesses all the qualities that made the Model B one of the most recorded pianos of all time for over a century: deep, powerful, rich bass, accelerated action, incredible sustain, and great action.

The Steinway Model B has been in continuous production by the company for over 140 years, and this venerable model continues in regular production at both the New York and Hamburg Steinway factories.  To this day, it remains one of the favorite pianos for countless high-level artists throughout the world.  As of June 2022, the MSRP of a new Model B in Satin Ebony finish is currently priced at $124,900.

Introduced in 1878 as The Model B ‘Music Room Grand’ with an 85 note keyboard, the first 88 note was manufactured in New York in 1891.  Production of the Model B in Hamburg, Germany began in 1897.  The Model B measures 6’11” in length, 58″ in width and weighs well over 700 pounds.  Much of the distinctive sound of the Model B can be attributed to the fact that the rim of the piano is constructed of hard rock maple and that both the inner and outer rims are constructed and formed together.

This is great sounding Model B and an excellent choice for those looking for an instrument capable of producing incredible tonal range and dynamics, great clarity in the mid-range, and the responsiveness of the Steinway action.  The Steinway Model B is considered to be one of the finest pianos in the 7’ range that has ever been produced, and in many ways is the benchmark that most modern pianos have been judged by for well over a century.
