Responsiveness. Precision. Intuitive grace. A superior musical instrument can be recognized by the degree to which it allows the player to express vision without interference — with nothing standing between the fingers and the music in the air. Such is the experience of playing a Boston. Designed by STEINWAY & SONS, employing the unique patents and expertise that have made the name of STEINWAY synonymous with musical excellence, the Boston line of grand and upright pianos represents a singular achievement in instrument building: a superior playing experience at a price level never before thought possible.

Whether dazzling an audience, woodshedding in the practice room, or exploring the joy of music at home, the Steinway–designed Boston brings genuine world-class tone and responsiveness within reach.

BOSTON UP120

performance edition II

High-grade, straight-grained, quarter-sawn spruce is used for the soundboard's resonant qualities and high strength-to-mass ratio. The soundboard is solid and not laminated, which creates the best resonance and projection of sound. In 1936, STEINWAY patented the diaphragmatic soundboard, which was designed to be thicker in the middle and gently tapered to the edges. The Boston soundboard has tapered thickness from bass to treble. A thinner soundboard in the bass area vibrates more freely, resulting in a richer, fuller tone.
