STEINWAY & SONS pianos today are still distinguished by founder Henry E. Steinway's guiding principle: “Build the best piano possible.... Make no compromise in quality.” Where some have substituted mass-produced, synthetic components to speed piano production or reduce costs, we apply technologies and new materials only when they provide proven enhancements in the piano. Compromise quality, and you risk the sound, the touch, and ultimately, the integrity of the instrument. Simply put, Steinway pianos remain handcrafted because our handcraftmanship produces instruments of the highest quality.
Today, Steinway remains at the helm of piano innovation. Over the past decade, the company’s improvements in craftsmanship and technology have resulted in greater precision, greater uniformity of touch and greater sound quality — ensuring that today’s Steinway is the finest Steinway yet.
