Come in to your local West Music store and hear for yourself the quality and craftsmanship of the Boston and Essex pianos.
Designed by Steinway, these pianos are built using the techniques and expertise developed over 160 years of building the finest pianos in the world – the instruments the finest artists insist upon.
The Boston Performance Edition features improvements in materials, specifications, and performance never before seen in the mid-price range. The Boston piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous Steinway & Sons design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply can’t be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range. In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone. A maple inner rim, found in only the finest pianos, increases structural integrity and improves the tone by isolating the soundboard. These and other nuances set Boston apart apart from imitators.
The Steinway-designed Essex piano incorporates the latest design specifications and engineering standards from Steinway & Sons. In keeping with Steinway’s commitment to excellence, Steinway & Sons provides technical assistance for the production of Essex pianos, to insure that Essex pianos are made to the specifications established by Steinway. And every Essex instrument is inspected by a team of highly experienced Steinway & Sons trained technicians before it leaves the factory. Due to the Steinway-designed Rim Shape, Essex grand pianos are wider at the tail than most other pianos of the same length. This allows for a larger soundboard area, producing a richer sound. Essex pianos have a Steinway-designed, all wood (no plastic) action for proven durability and heightened responsiveness and control.
