New Semiconcert Grand from Steingraeber & Söhne.



The new Steingraeber & Sons D-232, the "little brother" of the E-272 concert grand, will be introduced at the 2008 Frankfurt Music Exhibition. Both the D and E models include the same acoustic features, such as the symmetrically shaped rim with a sound reflection zone at the rear, plate design which is designed to eliminate forward cross-braces and precisely limited sounding board area .

According to Steingraeber & Söhne, new features are:
  • the D-232 has the lightest top lid of any grand piano, up to 33% lighter than industrially manufactured lids, which contributes extra overtones to the core sound.
  • the capo d'astro bar extends across forty-six unisons to just above the middle of the keyboard, thereby encompassing the largest pitch range of any piano. This concept is unique to Steingraeber and is of-fered nowhere else in the world. Only forty-two unisons pass through agraffes!


The "7-foot-7" (as the D-232 is called in America) also comes with a drilled capo d'astro bar. This creates little bridges between every tone from the bar to the plate, adding structural stability and contribute to the exceptionally long sustain.
There's twenty to twenty-five grams of upweight with a downweight of 48g in the treble and 52g in the bass designed to make playing more enjoyable, lightning fast, or controllable down to the softest pia-nissimo.
Synthetic ivory key tops, based on slightly hygroscopic mineral material, and solid ebony keys com-plete the great feel of this piano. Mammoth ivory is also available as an option on Steingraeber pianos.
