This brand originates from Berlin in 1908. After a short take-over period by the English Bentley Piano Company from 1984 to 1992, the brand was again taken over by Whelpdale, Maxwell&Codd Ltd. from 1993 to 1998 and finally in 2003 by Music Brothers International BV. in Veenendaal. Since then, G. Steinberg has been built as a separate line in the Perzina factory in Yantai, China.
The parts they use come from Europe, just like Perzina, so the brand is respectably manifested at the top of the beginners class. There are 5 types (heights) of pianos and 4 types (lengths) of grand pianos built.
G. Steinberg instruments are characterized by their excellent value for money and beautiful designs. The fine touch and the beautiful warm sounds makes playing a pleasant experience.
Gerhard Steinberg started as a piano factory in Berlin in 1908. At that time there were more than 250 piano factories in the city. Few survived, Gerhard Steinberg did. In 1965 the company came into English hands and flourished under the management of George Rogers & Sons. Later it became the Bentley piano Britisch Piano Manufacturer Corporation. Nowadays Gerhard Steinberg is a second line of instruments that is manufactured in the Gebr. Perzina factory.
Gerhard Steinberg stands for authentic pianos and grand pianos with a contemporary look. These instruments are built in a traditional way with high-quality materials such as a European spruce soundboard and a German pin block (deliquit) and Röslau strings. In short, an instrument with an excellent price/quality ratio.
The soundboard strengthens, colours and extends the sound produced by the strings. For a long lasting sound, the soundboard is of vital importance. The soundboard of G Steinberg, made of Sitka spruce wood, gives an optimal sound, does not tear and is not susceptible to central heating and climatic conditions. The strings are made of the best quality 'Röslau'. The tuning block, which includes the nickel tuning pins, is made of 28 layers of wood to prevent tearing. The keyboard has 7 ¼ octaves (88 keys). The mechanism has a direct stroke and rehearses quickly. A carefully chosen instrument provides lifelong pleasure.
