I’ve been playing Steinways since I was 10 years old, having taken piano lessons from a student of Bartok who had 2 Steinway Model S Baby Grands in her living room. Then in college, I was playing on 6 different Steinways, ranging from a model M to the full 9′ Model D. There are pianos, and then there are Steinways; it’s that simple. This particular Model B has an outstanding tone, very musical without ever sounding harsh. The action is very forgiving but not too light; probably the best action of any Steinway I’ve played. EXC overall condition and a very nice example.
A new Model B lists for $85K w/o much discount. Personally, I’d much rather play a Steinway than drive a Mercedes!
