Certified Pre-Owned


Get the peace of mind from knowing your used Steinway is a true Steinway. Available for Steinway & Sons grand pianos 30 years or younger, the Steinway Certified Pre-Owned intruments undergo a rigorous quality assessment.

Tried, True & Tested

Each Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) instrument includes a 74-point checklist to ensure authenticity, condition and performance. Any repair or replacement to a CPO instrument is done with 100% genuine Steinway parts. All CPO instruments come with a signed inspection report with matching serial number, a Steinway Certified Pre-Owned warranty certificate with matching serial number, and a Steinway Certified Pre-Owned rim stamp on the piano itself. Certified Pre-owned Steinways come with a three-year limited warranty.

When you purchase any Certified Pre-owned Steinway, you have the option within five years of the date of purchase to receive 100% of the original purchase price in trade toward a new Steinway grand. That is The Steinway Promise.

If it doesn’t have 12,116 genuine Steinway parts, it isn’t a Steinway.

The Steinway soundboard

The patented Steinway Diaphragmatic Soundboard, heart and soul of the Steinway, converts the vibration of the piano strings into audible tones. The greatest thickness is in the middle, from which point there is continual tapering in all directions toward the outer edges. This design reduces the energy needed by the soundboard to vibrate, an efficiency that permits a greater variance of tone, color, and richness.

Steinway soundboards are made of the highest-grade close-grained, quarter-sawn Sitka spruce from British Columbia and Alaska. Sitka spruce is chosen for its superb acoustic qualities and is hand-selected to be free from defects, which allows it to transmit and amplify sound better than lesser wood. Individual pieces are matched to produce soundboards of uniform color and tonal quality.

Steinway doesn’t sell its soundboard à la carte; it only comes as part of a true Steinway, which is why it is imperative that any pre-owned Steinway be purchased solely from an authorized Steinway dealer.
