boston grand pianos

Designed by STEINWAY & SONS, employing the unique patents and expertise that have made the STEINWAY synonymous with musical excellence, the BOSTON line of grands represent a singular achievement: a superior playing experience at a price level never before thought possible.

The best-in-class Boston grand just got even better. Boston’s new Performance Edition II now features a luxurious Pomelle Sapele veneer on the inside rim (on Ebony finish grands) and a stunning rose-gold colored plate. We’ve also upgraded to black felts for the plate, under the fallboard, and around the pedals. A rescaled bass and treble wire lower string tension provides increased sustain, better tone clarity, and a deeper, clearer bass.

The PE II also includes the major enhancements previously introduced with the original Performance Edition in 2009, including a maple inner rim (found only in the finest pianos) and the patented Octagrip™ pinblock. In combination, these enhancements further elevate the Performance Edition II to a class by itself in the mid-price range.


“You can hear the effects of the Steinway & Sons design from one end of the scale to the other.”

the model that is right for you

GP 215 Performance Edition II

Featuring a maple inner rim and Octagrip pinblock, the GP-215 Performance Edition II is 7′ ½” (215 cm) in length, and the grand of choice for many institutions and festivals that boast mid-sized performance venues.

GP 193 Performance Edition II

At 6′ 4″ (193 cm), the GP-193 Performance Edition II produces a powerful yet warm sound and is an excellent choice for teaching studios.

GP 178 Performance Edition II

At 5′ 10″ (178 cm), the GP-178 Performance Edition II is the perfect grand for any teaching studio or music room.

GP 163 Performance Edition II

At 5′ 4″ (163 cm), the GP-163 Performance Edition II is small enough to fit in any home, but possesses the sound of a much larger grand — thanks to its widetail design.

GP 156 Performance Edition II

The smallest Boston grand by size at 5′ 1½” (156 cm), there is nothing small about the sound of GP-156 Performance Edition II, which benefits from a wide-tail design.
