A bit about Steingraeber & Söhne Pianos

Steingraeber & Söhne are a German manufacturer of custom-made pianos loved by professionals, instructors and music enthusiasts alike. Established in 1852, Steingraeber & Söhne pride themselves on creating instruments with only the finest, highest quality materials available. With excellence and traditional craftsmanship at the heart of the brand, Steingraeber & Söhne pianos create the perfect harmony between pianists and pianos. 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.
