Twist & Change

This is the name of the two-pianos-in-one combination that changes the appearance of your upright in a jiffy: In this variation, rare woods show up on one half of the front, and on the upper and lower front portions of the piano, but the back is always in solid polished black.

A bit about Steingraeber & Söhne Pianos

In the UK, Steingraeber pianos can still be arguably defined as the best kept secret in the piano world. Since 1852, these wonderful instruments have been made to very limited numbers in Bayreuth, Germany and their list of proud owners include Franz Liszt whose last piano can be found in the grand yet welcoming residence of the Steingraeber family. Udo Schimdt-Steingraeber and his talented team of artisans produce exquisite instruments which, for those in the know, are considered to be amongst the finest pianos made today. We have sold several of their instruments to famous musicians who up until their visit to our showroom, were not aware of their existence. They are also responsible for many innovations including the optional SFM ‘grand feel’ action on their uprights and the unique pedalling system for wheelchair bound players.
