Shackleford Pianos is Steingraeber's official dealer in North England.
Steingraeber & Söhne – Piano Manufactory in Bayreuth since 1852
"In essence, it’s very simple: Take the finest natural materials, the time-honoured principles of piano making and combine them all to create pianos that are truly living instruments. Only then can the tonal richness that Horowitz craved come into being, a richness that every musician needs in order to be inspired and to enjoy making music. However this is precisely what no more than a handful of piano manufacturers in the world have been able to achieve. Today, practically all new pianos have been reduced to the status of mere percussion instruments, and yet it is of vital importance for professional pianists to be able to influence and nuance each note that they play; that is an absolute must for every interpreter.
Our upright and grand pianos are handcrafted using time-honoured traditions of piano making and are among the finest instruments produced by an elite group of manufacturers. We invite you to get to know them personally, either at Shackleford Pianos or here at our factory in the Festival City of Bayreuth. We look forward to your visit! With best regards, Udo Steingraeber"
