The STEINWAY grand is the gold standard of musical instruments, representing over 160 years of dedication to craftsmanship and uncompromised expression. It is for these reasons that over 19 out of 20 concert pianists choose the STEINWAY grand – and why the instrument remains at the heart of cultured homes the world over.
Steinway & Sons uprights are handcrafted to the highest standard of quality in the same factory as our grands, using the same materials, techniques, conditioning processes and craftsmen. The only difference is that they’re built in the “vertical department,” where those same processes are vertically oriented. The result is the world’s finest upright, living up to the Steinway & Sons name in every respect. Our uprights take advantage of myriad patented features and processes, including our Diaphragmatic soundboard, Accelerated Action and Hexagrip pinblock.
Steinway has collaborated with some of the most notable artists and designers of our time to create a special series of Steinways that re-imagine what uncompromised expression looks like. Custom-built at our Steinway & Sons New York and Hamburg factories, our limited editions combine classic Steinway craftsmanship with inspired and expressive designs — making each Limited Edition Steinway both a majestic musical instrument and a completely unique work of art.
Your Steinway can be the perfect expression of you. Whether it’s a subtle difference, such as the all-silver hardware of the Sterling Steinway, or a more eye-catching statement, such as a Red Pops Steinway, we invite you to find a Special Collections Steinway that best suits your home and your style.
