Responsiveness. Precision. Intuitive grace. A superior musical instrument can be recognized by the degree to which it allows the player to express vision without interference — with nothing standing between the fingers and the music in the air.
Such is the experience of playing a Boston. Designed by STEINWAY & SONS, employing the unique patents and expertise that have made the name of STEINWAY synonymous with musical excellence, the Boston line of grand and upright pianos represents a singular achievement in instrument building: a superior playing experience at a price level never before thought possible.
Each Boston soundboard is crafted of solid Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely.
Boston’s cutting-edge manufacturing environment and scupulous quality control weds efficiency of production with the finest old-world standards of artistry. Add a number of special technologies—unique patents of STEINWAY & SONS—and the result is a powerful, sustained tone.
Boston’s innovative “wide tail” design permits a 5'10" Boston grand the same soundboard area as a typical 6'2" grand piano, creating the power, richness and feel of playing a much larger instrument.
STEINWAY–designed low-tension scaling results in a longer sustaining tone and longer life of the whole piano. A low-tension string scale design gives a fuller tone by allowing more of the lower partials to sing. It is also more powerful, has more sustain, has more dynamic range, and provides warmer and mellower tones.
Pear-shaped hammers manufactured on a STEINWAY-owned hammer press. Striking the strings at exactly the right spot, these hammers are designed to produce the best tonal result.
