Manufactured at Steinway’s factory in New York in 1956, this hand-crafted piano was designed and manufactured with quality parts by Steinway’s highly skilled craftsmen and technicians.  The beautiful elegant high quality satin ebony cabinet is in very good condition (bench included). It plays and sounds fantastic with the characteristic deep resounding Steinway bass and rich, full overtones that these pianos are known for.

This piano has been thoroughly inspected, detailed, and tuned.  We have voiced the hammers which are all in great shape, replaced the damper felts and bridal straps, tuned the piano, and regulated the action.  This Steinway model 1098 (46.5” in height) would be the perfect choice for either home or institutional use. It is one of the most solidly built studio uprights you are likely to find when looking for a piano in this category.

Steinway’s “Professional” 1098 upright is one of the most popular vertical pianos ever produced by this venerable American piano manufacturer. This model has been widely used in the most demanding institutional settings for many decades. Steinway’s patented Accelerated Action incorporated into the design of this piano is amazingly responsive, due in part to a unique design feature that uses the force of gravity to bring the hammers back to their rest position, an exclusive feature found only in Steinway vertical pianos. The massive and strategically placed back posts on this model ensure the structural integrity of the instrument by handling the tremendous tension with complete efficiency. For many years the model 1098 has been popular in conservatories and schools of music, houses of worship, and practice studios. Considering its design and construction it is more than well suited for home use and will provide worry free service and pleasure for many years to come.
