Today’s Steinway: We still make them like we used to...

ONLY BETTER.

The soundboard

The soundboard lies at the heart of a Steinway, which is why we take exceptional care in its design, wood selection and installation.

 

The Steinway Diaphragmatic Soundboard is based on an innovative patent to achieve optimum performance in dynamic range and maximum sustain. Under this patent, the soundboard is gradually tapered from the center to the edge, permitting freedom of movement and creating a sound of unparalleled richness, sonority, and sustain.

Today, our soundboard spruce is sourced entirely from one singular island in Alaska, the only location that meets our stringent specifications. This unique micro-climate provides spruce with the highest quality grain density, direction and color. In recent years, specifications have been tightened on grain angularity and grain direction with no more than +/- 15 degrees off of 90-degree vertical grain being allowed, making for a superiorly uniform soundboard.

We recently implemented state-of-the-art machinery and conditioning rooms to more precisely meet the specifications of our soundboard design. Beginning in 2021, a new custom-five-axis piano-rim machining center will achieve an unparalleled fit between the soundboard and the rim, ensuring pristine resonance, tonal color and purity of sound.

A Steinway intimately connects artist and listener, and invites its owner to join a tradition of musical perfection, making it an invaluable investment.
