Our aim is to keep every Steinway grand piano played as true to the original as possible. This applies in particular to the preservation of the Steinway soundboard, the use of Steinway hammer heads and other parts that are typical for the sound and playing style of a Steinway.

The instruments are professionally overhauled and the tonality and technology are improved. A team of several piano builders/masters trained at Steinway in Hamburg works for us. The entire overhaul, including the new case surface, can take up to a year for a Steinway.

You will be surprised how unique even older Steinways can sound if they have been optimally overhauled. The quality of the wood used for the soundboard and other acoustic systems at that time can hardly be surpassed. This also applies to the large amount of time required for production.

Our prices for played Steinways are approx. 40 to 60% below the current new price. Depending on the effort involved, overhauls worth up to EUR 25,000 are already included.

At present, more or less well refurbished Steinway grand pianos from New York production are offered, whose case was reworked, among other things, to appear as a Steinway grand piano from Hamburg and to be sold at a higher price.

Pianohaus Zechlin sells high-quality Steinway & Sons grand pianos made in Hamburg. Grand pianos made in New York are identified as such.
