Steinway Duo-Art 9' 6" Concert Grand Pianos
By Rob Case

I've been wondering for years how many of these behemoths are still
around and who has one..., and how many still retain their Duo-Art
mechanisms?  And while I'm on it, who bought these pianos originally?

These pianos must have been the ones built to show off the Duo-Art
for concerts with orchestras, therefore specially encoded rolls had to
be made for them for the dynamics to work effectively enough to fill a
concert hall.  Does anybody know what happened to them all?
