Many people know that when it comes to acoustic grand pianos, Steinway is considered by most people to be the crème de la crème. Steinway pianos come with prestige and the name alone commands respect. Of course, there is a reason for this – Steinway pianos make an unbelievable sound and are crafted by expert piano makers.
A New Piano from Steinway
Last week a new piano was announced from Steinway, but this instrument is something a little different. This brand new Steinway piano, named the Sunburst, has been created to pay tribute to pays tribute to the colours of guitars played by rock legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton.
When put away and all lids of this Steinway piano are closed, this piano looks just like any other grand piano… When the lid and key cover are opened however, a wave of vibrant colour is visible. The inside of the piano lid has a bright orange colour around the outside edges and this gradually fades to yellow in the middle – much like many famous guitars throughout musical history.
“The Steinway & Sons Sunburst is a result of a collaboration between the piano maker and Wolfgang Niedecken, frontman of German rock band BAP and his colleague Michael Nass.”- Classic FM
