Description

Designed by STEINWAY & SONS in collaboration with renowned furniture designer William Faber, the ESSEX has been created as a tribute to the idea that beautiful piano styles and finishes should be possible in every price range. The entry into the line of STEINWAY–designed grand pianos, ESSEX is manufactured globally and incorporates STEINWAY & SONS’ latest design specifications and engineering standards, as well as the STEINWAY commitment to excellence. Every ESSEX instrument is inspected by a team of highly experienced STEINWAY & SONS trained technicians before it leaves the factory. The EGP-173C or “Classic Grand” is the style by which all others are judged. This Classic Sheraton design has withstood the test of time for over 100 years since it was first introduced by STEINWAY & SONS in 1900. Available in ebonised polish.
