In terms of design, Steingraeber can trace its roots back to 1905. Steingraeber don’t think of their smallest grand piano as a ‘baby grand’, simply because it has received many “Best in its Class” awards that praise the sound as being much bigger than the instrument looks. In terms of construction, this phenomenal achievement lies in the unusually-wide shape of the A-170, which allows room for the use of very long bass strings.
The only top-rated salon grand piano, it transmits vibrational energy just like a concert grand. Because of its bass bridge design, (i.e., without apron and base), its sound is not thin and metallic (or ‘tinny’), as is typical of small grand pianos.
Furthermore the piano’s touch is professional, which is why you will find it on stages, and in music schools and opera houses with limited space. The fascinating Oslo Opera House is a prime example of its use and suitability.
All Steingraeber pianos are handcrafted in Bayreuth, Bavaria using the time-honoured tradition of piano building and are among the finest instruments produced by an elite group of manufacturers. Steingraeber adhere to piano making principles that see their pianos deliver the finest quality in sound touch and appearance. Acoustics, statics, cabinetry, and action mechanism - these are all components of Classic piano building that views ALL components as sound sources and, without exception, uses natural, resonating materials that require custom adjustment and precision work. This is where the ability to tailor or modify the sound of a Steingraber comes from. This extends to the Steingraeber action mechanism and pedals, which are built with a view to perceptible resonating energy, like an extension of the human body.

Even if your piano is not used it will go out of tune. Make sure you have your piano tuned every six months.
Avoid humidity. The best humidity level to keep a piano at is around 60%
Avoid placing your piano near a radiator or against an outside wall, near open fireplaces or log burners.
Avoid water damage. Keep vases, pot plants, cups of tea etc away from the piano.
When you clean your piano use a micro fibre cloth. Do not use furniture polish.
The best temperature to keep your piano at is between 21 - 24c The worst thing you can expose a piano to is extremes of heat and humidity. For example, if you go away for a few days and let your house freeze, then come home and put your heating on high, expect piano problems. Instead, slowly introduce heat into the room.

All we ask is that you follow the guidelines above and this will maintain the warranty.
