For sale is a 1917 Steinway A3 that was built during Steinway's 'golden age.' It is a powerful instrument suitable for a large room. Visually impressive in its mahogany veneer, this Steinway has been kept in a climate-controlled environment, and is in occasional use in Grand Rapids, MI.

Playing it, one gets an idea of the sound and touch preferred by masters like Paderewski and Rubinstein. It resembles Paderewski’s Steinway housed at the Polish Consulate, Washington, D.C. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fortepian_Paderewskiego.jpg ).

During its rebuilding in 1979, the firm Reeder Pianos completed the following:

*installing new soundboard (in excellent condition as of December 2023)
*new pin block

*new strings
*bridges re-capped, chiseled out, and re-pinned

*complete refinishing of mahogany veneer
*complete re-felting of action parts, trap work, and keyboard

*installation of new hammers, matching their original weights

Contact me to set up a time for a virtual demonstration. Transportation of the piano is to be arranged by the purchaser, although I am happy to work with local movers to prepare it for transport.
