Stein Grand Piano

Description (Brief)
This grand piano was made by André Stein in Vienna, Austria around 1824-1826. Matthäus Andreas Stein, the twelfth child of the famous early piano maker Johann Andreas Stein, changed his middle name to the French form André in the early 1800s when he opened his own shop in Vienna. This piano has a compass of FF-f4, Viennese action, without checks, leather hammers, brass strings, double- or triple-strings for each note, 4 pedals: keyboard shift, bassoon, moderator, and dampers, wood frame, straight-strung, and a mahogany case in the Empire style.
