description

It is rare that one has the opportunity to hear a properly restored Steinway Duo-Art Reproducing Grand piano these days. These Duo-Art grand pianos amazingly recreate the intricate expression and dynamics of a real pianist. They sound completely human!

During the early 20th Century, Steinway teamed up with Aeolian to built a number of Steinway grand pianos equipped with the Duo-Art reproducing player mechanism. Sadly, most of these pianos have been gutted of their player mechanisms today, and fully restored, working instruments are very rare to find. This piano was restored a few years ago by a prominent player piano specialist on the West Coast, and it plays like the day it left the factory in the 1920s!

A large cabinet with dozens of piano rolls is included (see photos).
