Connoisseurs of fine pianos have long admired the superb instruments manufactured by Steinway & Sons, established in 1853. A Steinway concert grand was played at Barack Obama's inauguration, and Daniel Barenboim, Harry Connick Jr. and Long Island's own Billy Joel have all owned and played these pianos. Since March 2009, Long Islanders have had the opportunity to shop for Steinway pianos and more at the Steinway & Sons Piano Gallery in Melville.
The 9,000-square foot building features new and restored Steinway pianos, from smaller models to grand pianos, as well Boston and Essex pianos and digital pianos.
Boston and Essex Pianos and More:
Boston and Essex pianos are two lines in the Steinway family, but both come at a lower cost than Steinways. These lines also come with the same Steinway & Sons warranties as their original line. In addition, all pianos at the gallery come with a lifetime trade-up option. If you buy a piano here but later wish to buy one at a higher cost, you'll receive a credit from your first piano towards the purchase.
A stroll through the piano gallery is a dream-come-true for piano lovers, with lovingly restored vintage Steinways sitting alongside brand new instruments. Upright pianos and baby grands in various sizes stand alongside concert grands, with rich wood finishes from deep mahogany to Brazilian redwood.
The Steinway Piano Gallery, Long Island, is the famed company's latest showroom. Other galleries include those in Westport, Connecticut; Miami, Florida; Paramus, New Jersey, and Steinway Hall in New York City.
Salespersons will help you choose the right piano for your price range, size and musical needs. There's a recital space where FREE musical events are held, and there are plans for an education center for private and group lessons.
