- Generally, pianos over 25 years are considered past their life expectancy.
- The examination of pianos for evidence of exposure to adverse conditions such as fire, water, insect and heavy institutional usage would be recommended.
Although Steinway pianos are built to provide many years of beautiful music, age can take a toll on certain parts and slowly diminish performance over time. Optimal conditions and proper care can dramatically slow the progression of this process, however less than optimal conditions and improper care can accelerate them. We have come across 50-year-old Steinway pianos that are in much better condition than Steinways half their age that were compromised by improper climatic conditions and inadequate care.
A thorough examination by a qualified piano technician is needed to accurately assess the condition of any older piano. Find your local Steinway dealer to get a recommendation on a piano technician in your area that is best qualified to assess Steinways.
