This Steinway Model L Grand Piano was originally manufactured in the USA in 1933 at the Steinway & Sons factory in New York that has been totally rebuilt by Atlantic Music Center. It was completely refinished and rebuilt by our shop and a new state-of-art QRS PnoMation Player Piano System has been installed allowing you access to the largest library ever available for player pianos combined with an iPad (or tablet) controllable interface.
The Steinway Model L measures 5’10½” in length, a size that provides the perfect balance between size and space for those looking for a baby grand for the home. Dubbed the ‘living room grand’ by Steinway, these pianos are a favorite of many accomplished pianists, and are also excellent pianos for use in institutional practice rooms and even performance venues. With the latest model of the QRS player piano system installed, this piano possesses all the qualities of a classic Steinway from the Golden Age of American piano manufacturing combined with the technology to turn this classic instrument into a modern and sophisticated home entertainment system.
The Model L is well known for its quality design and construction. For over eighty years, it was one of the most popular models ever manufactured by Steinway, featuring a rich, full tone and an action that is responsive and subtly refined. This piano has a beautiful deep, rich bass and incredible sustain. The action is responsive and a pleasure to perform on, and the keyboard retains its original ivory keytops which are all in extra fine condition and have been thoroughly cleaned and professionally reconditioned.
The case and cabinet of this Atlantic Music Center Certified Rebuilt Piano has been completely refinished to bring out the original natural beauty of the expertly crafted American Mahogany satin finish. All brass and metalwork has either been replaced or polished to like-new condition. The cast iron plate was removed, refinished, and re-installed after refinishing the soundboard and bridges. We replaced the pinblock and installed new tuning pins. The strings were replaced with brand new Mapes piano strings and we installed brand-new high-quality Renner Bluepoint hammers, shanks, and flanges. All felts including damper felts were replaced, the key bushings were replaced, and all worn action parts replaced. The action has been regulated, hammers voiced, and the piano has been tuned several times to ensure long term stability.
Lastly, we installed a new QRS PnoMation system. All work was performed here in our shop by our skilled and certified piano technicians, and the system has been regulated, calibrated, and the latest software version installed. If you are looking for a classic American Steinway Grand that offers the beauty of a new piano, the full sound of a large baby grand, and the ability entertain you and your guest with some of the greatest performances of the century by original artists, this is it.

The Steinway & Sons Model L is among the larger sized Steinway ‘baby grands’ that Steinway designed and manufactured. The Model L scale design is based very closely on its predecessor the Model O which it replaced in the mid 1920’s. The Model L with its square tail, was designed to replace the same-size Model O which featured a rounded tail. The cast iron plate and soundboard conform to the square tail providing additional soundboard space at the rear of the instrument when compared to its predecessor. The Steinway Model L was manufactured from 1924 until 2005. The Model L was discontinued by Steinway & Sons in 2005 and replaced with the same model piano it had superseded all those years ago, the Model O.
The Model L (and Model O) are extremely popular with pianists who enjoy owning and experiencing the excellence of a Steinway piano in a manageable size and are the largest in the range of Steinway Grand Pianos that are sized to suit the space requirements of a private residence.
The Model L was pretty much a New York specialty and was not manufactured at the Hamburg Steinway factory. However, in 1984 and later in 1985, rims, soundboards and plates were shipped to the Hamburg factory from New York where they were completed into finished Model L Grand Pianos. This very limited New York/Hamburg run was specially made for the European institutional market.
