This Hamburg manufactured Steinway model B (211cm - 6’ 11”) dates from 1987. It has just had a very comprehensive overhaul by Jeffrey Shackell and Paul Mildren, a working partnership that has existed for 43 years!
The work has included a complete new casework refinish in the traditional high gloss ebony polyester with all brass fittings highly polished. The piano is fitted with new castors. The piano retains its perfect condition original soundboard and the cast steel plate has been fitted with new agraffes and new hitch pins as well as a high quality re-bronze coating of the correct Steinway & Sons plate colour. A complete new top action has been fitted to the original keyframe and keys, the natural keys having been fitted with new ivoplast key material and new sharps have been fitted as well. New damper felts, damper tray overhaul, new check heads and other miscellaneous work has been carried out in the restoration. All has been completed with full action and damper regulating, reweighing of the action to standard Steinway weight and multiple tunings and voicing.
This is a piano to treasure for years to come and for the pianist or collector to admire and share it’s beauty and musical colours.
