Introducing the new Performance Edition II by Boston, featuring a Kewazinga Bubinga veneer on the inside rim (ebony pianos only), rose-gold plate color, black felts, and a rescaled bass and treble strings.
The Boston PE II builds on the best-in-class features that Boston is known for, including a Hard Rock Maple inner rim and Octagrip™ pinblock. At 5' 10" (178 cm), the GP-178 Performance Edition is the perfect grand for any teaching studio or music room.
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 lower string tension. This reduced string tension, along with a tapered soundboard, creates longer sustain, and a 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 solid (not laminated) and 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.
