Boston’s innovative “wide tail” design permits a 5’10” Boston grand the same soundboard area as a typical 6’2″ grand piano, creating the power, richness and feel of playing a much larger instrument.
superior wood, EXCELLENT SOUND
Each Boston soundboard is crafted of solid Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. Add a number of special technologies—unique patents of STEINWAY & SONS—and the result is a powerful, sustained tone.
