Boston GP156 Grand Piano Description
Boston GP156 Grand Piano
Introducing the GP156 by Boston, featuring a Pomelle Sapele veneer on the inside rim, rose-gold plate color, and a rescaled bass and treble strings.
The Boston GP156 builds on the best-in-class features that Boston is known for, including a Hard Rock Maple inner rim and Octagrip pinblock. The Steinway-designed Boston piano – long unrivalled in its class and unmatched in value – has been significantly enhanced with the introduction of the new Performance Edition. The Boston Performance Edition features improvements in materials, specifications and performance which have never before been experienced in the mid-price range of grand pianos.
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. Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of Steinway & Sons — the result is a powerful, sustained tone. Fine veneers underlie the elegance of the Boston pianos — available in walnut and mahogany satin or polished finishes, as an alternative to the classic ebonized — all designed to delight the eye and enhance the player’s experience.
