zSOLD - Boston GP-178 Grand Piano - Polished Walnut

The Boston series of pianos resulted as a collaboration between piano manufacturers Steinway and Kawai, with Steinway supplying the design and Kawai managing the production. This 5'10" instrument is exceptional in touch, tone, and appearance. The Boston piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous Steinway & Sons design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply can’t be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range.

In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.

The Boston grand piano offers a larger soundboard in comparison to other pianos of the same length, due to its innovative “wide tail” design. This wider construction of the case means that a 5’ 10” Boston grand has the same soundboard area as a typical 6’ 2” grand piano, creating the power, richness, and feel of playing a much larger piano.

This polished walnut GP-178 from 2001-2002 is a beautiful, great sounding instrument at a very affordable price for such a quality grand piano.
