The Official Guide to Steinway Pianos by Roy F. Kehl and David R. Kirkland

For the first time, 16 decades of Steinway piano making has been captured between two covers

An essential reference for piano technicians worldwide in identifying Steinway pianos, The Official Guide to Steinway Pianos (Amadeus Press; Sept. 6, 2011; $50) encompasses, for the first time, reference material and details from 16 decades of Steinway piano making in New York.

Thirty years of research and compilation by authors Roy F. Kehl and David R. Kirkland bring to light with thorough precision the production history of Steinway pianos. A “family tree” of Steinway production history provides in-depth, complete historical listings of all models produced and their characteristic details, including:

• First and last serial numbers and production dates
• Individual scale studies for major models
• Highlights of important changes and events in Steinway piano production by serial number and date
• A gallery of Steinway decalcomania
• A table of Steinway patents
• Tables of historic Steinway steel wire sizes

The Official Guide to Steinway Pianos is an indispensable tool for piano technicians and dealers who need to determine the relationship of a particular Steinway piano within the historical framework of the company’s overall production, as well as a means to help identify, establish the provenance of, and verify and preserve the originality of any given Steinway piano.

Through compilation of pinpoint information, The Official Guide to Steinway Pianos offers an accurate and fascinating résumé of Steinway & Sons’ ongoing production history.
