Weight of Steinway Pianos
By John A. Tuttle

Hi all,  I guess I'd better get to the eye doctor, or look a little
harder when reading small print.

In a previous posting I stated that the Steinway 9' concert grand piano
weighs 900 pounds.  The reference material from Steinway actually reads
990 pounds.   I've sent a scan of the weight chart to Robbie.

 [ Here's the data of the weight chart.  -- Robbie

  size             weight              model

  274 cm (107.9")  450 kg (990 lbs.)   D  grand
  211 cm (83")     345 kg (760 lbs.)   B  grand
  179 cm (70.5")   277 kb (610 lbs.)   L  grand
  170 cm (67")     255 kg (560 lbs.)   M  grand
  155 cm (61")     245 kb (540 lbs.)   S  grand
  132 cm (52")     273 kg (600 lbs.)   K  vertical
  118 cm (46.5")   218 kg (480 lbs.)   1098 vertical

Musically,
