DESCRIPTION

This is a rare model George Steck Duo-Art Reproducing Player Grand Piano. George Steck was one of America’s older and more renoun piano builders, and the firm was known to build very high-quality, expensive pianos.
The Duo-Art Reproducing Piano was a specialized type of player piano that played with expression like a real person. Most player pianos rely on the person sitting at the piano to control the speed and dynamics, while a reproducing player piano has extra perforations in the music roll that control all dynamics from within, hence “reproducing” a live performance.
During the ‘teens and ‘twenties period, a piano like this would have cost about as much as a small house, making a Reproducing grand player piano a luxury that only a wealthy few could afford.
This piano is made of beautiful book-matched walnut, and is of the traditional style. It is being restored to like new condition inside and out. A matching walnut bench is included.
