Are there really still workshops like these in the twenty-first century?
When it comes to the very few, first-class instruments still made today by only a handful of global manufacturers, nature and craftsmanship take centre stage.
To the maker of a fine instrument, machines are simply an assistant. Natural materials are neither consistent nor uniform, and using only computer-operated machines can turns these ‘natural deviations’ into imprecisions and errors, all of which detracts from the goal of achieving the perfect sound. Steingraeber’s piano experts work on each natural material individually, with the sole purpose of creating your custom-made, unique instrument.
Master craftsmanship is truly a luxury that you can see, feel and, best of all, hear.
