In the Workshop

Steinway B

Rosewood 210 cm 

Update: The new soundboard has arrived from Italy. It is made by Ciresa with timbers from the Fiemme Forest, famous for the high altitude spruce trees that Stradivarius used for his violins. Steinway rebuilder David Salmon (ARPT PTTG Steinway Academy) is rebuilding this piano: new soundboard, restringing, rescaling, new bridges, new hammers shanks & rollers etc. Wytze and David know the Steinway B pianos well from servicing them for many years, and we are both are confident that this particular instrument will sound superb, almost like a new "B".

Steinway O - SOLD

Rosewood 180 cm 

This Steinway Model O grand piano was beautifully restored and restrung by Steinway technician David Salmon. The rebuild included restringing, new bridge caps, new hammers and the replacement of many action parts and felts. They resulting tone is typically Steinway, with the power and clarity that makes this instrument sound like a larger grand piano. It has a huge dynamic range and a rich tonal palette that stretches from warm and mellow to a shimmering brilliance with bell-like overtones.
