Jazz Pianist Scott Balin plays this maginificent Steinway A3 Gand Piano Model A, 6’4 1/2″ known as the “Stretch “A” because the usual A’s were either 6’1″ or 6’2″. This particular A3 was rebuilt & restrung around 10 years ago new strings, new pins, new dampers, bridge caps, re-gilded plate, new hammers, shanks, flanges, knuckles, bushings. The piano was just regulated and voiced to a world class concert stage level level. This one was made in 1927 during the “Golden Age” of Steinway manufacturing. This is a 6’4 1/2″ and they only made a few thousand of these from around 1913-1928. This piano is more like a B than an A yet has a refinement that you will find in very few Steinways or other pianos. Legend has it Steinway stopped making these because it was competing with the B in that it played and looked very similiar but cost significantly less then the B at that time. Steinway only recently started making A’s again but not this design. They are making one’s that are only 6’1″. For Questions or to make an appointment to see and play this gem call Sonny Direct!
