Model 205
Chamber Grand


In the early 1980’s, we redesigned the Steingraeber 205 on the basis of a design by Steingraeber’s founding father - THE design which gave rise to the sound profile of Liszt’s Steingraeber grand. This model is popular for recording sessions, conservatories, music festivals of Chamber, Jazz or New Music and is often requested for Lieder recitals. What makes this instrument so special is the subtle transparency of its tone. The 205 grand marks the realization of an unusual technical concept: Whereas the arched, well-sprung soundboard is comparatively slim, the design permits extremely long strings. Together, these two features make for dynamic diversity with a constant clarity of tone, whether the voicing of the hammer heads tend towards the lyrical or the brilliant. Demanding pianists also value the professional action of this grand which has one of the highest repetition speeds available. The basic version is Model 205 N Classical with three pedals (sostenuto), three lid props and large brass castors. There are countless variations available, ranging from the Classicist and Renaissance to the Baroque and Rococo, the rim of which has a sweeping lower edge. Photographs of all these styles are available upon request.
