Used, vintage, and restored Steinway pianos are often prized for their unique beauty and enduring value.

Steinway does not buy their soundboards, instead, they buy the spruce planks to make their soundboards.

Steinway’s strict standards for soundboard spruce and their yield factor on the prime-grade planks they purchase is only 50%.

The soundboard is a critical component in producing the inimitable “Steinway Sound” you desire.

Close-grained, quarter-sawn Sitka spruce, with a prescribed minimum number of annual growth rings is the wood used for Steinway soundboards.

A rebuilt Steinway is a piano in which all the components have been rebuilt to its original condition.
