Steinway & Sons - Upright Pianos

Every budding pianist’s career begins on an upright piano. In order to develop their gift to the full, talented players need the best possible conditions from the start. Steinway upright pianos are in a class of their own here, characterized by exceptional touch, precision manufacturing, and the unique Steinway System, with nearly half the patents acquired by Steinway relating to the upright piano.

The basic design principles that prove so successful in the making of grand pianos are applied equally rigorously to the uprights. Using the same quality of design, materials, and extensive hand-craftsmanship ensures that Steinway upright pianos represent an attractive alternative where space constraints rule out a grand.

The Steinway upright pianos are available in a large variety of veneers, colors, and finishes.

At forty-six and one half inches high, Steinway’s “Professional” upright has been widely used in the most demanding institutional settings for many decades. Its Accelerated Action is amazingly responsive, due in part to a unique design feature that uses the force of gravity to bring the hammers back to their rest position—which is something found only in Steinway vertical pianos. It also features Steinway’s massive and strategically placed backposts, which ensure the structural integrity of the instrument by handling the tremendous tension with complete efficiency. Extremely popular in conservatories and schools of music, this is a beautiful and impressive piano that will enrich the lives of its owners for generations.
