Music makes a space come alive. And the right music in a public space can energize a whole street.
So when our friends at the street design studio Arterial asked us to contribute to their PARKing Day event in Montclair, NJ, we were ready with a 1902 Steinway Model B.
PARKing Day is an international event based around building small temporary parks within parking spaces to demonstrate the possibility of reclaiming and "rehumanizing" urban spaces. There are some surprising ways to convert a parking spot or two in to a public park.
One of the most exciting developments for Lindeblad Piano in the last month was acquiring a fantastic vintage Steinway Model D. The model D is a "Concert Grand" and measures nearly 9 feet long. It dominates a concert hall, let alone our show room here in Pine Brook. Our pictures of it make it seem as if it's hardly contained by the camera, even.
We are in the process of completely restoring it, but, you can already feel it's unmatched power when you sit to play it. Playing a Model D feels like steering a Battleship when all you drive is a golf cart. The power in the bass is unmatched in pianos.
Here's the link to it's listing in our inventory. Feel free to call and ask us about it, and, when we finish it we are absolutely going to have it in our showroom. Battleship guns blazing.
UPDATE: We sold this piano to the Wolfeboro Friends of Music.
We are in the middle of finishing this really unique Circassian Walnut Knabe. The graining on it is fantastic and we think the loop in the center of the note rack looks like a target.

We have recently completely restored a 1902 Steinway Grand piano with a QRS Pianomation installed. I have attached photos of this masterpiece!
