Introducing the new Performance Edition II by Boston, featuring a Kewazinga Bubinga veneer on the inside rim (ebony pianos only), rose-gold plate color, black felts, and a rescaled bass and treble strings.

Features and Benefits

The Boston piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous STEINWAY & SONS design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply can’t be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range.

In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has lower string tension. This reduced string tension, along with a tapered soundboard, creates longer sustain, and a more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.

The Boston grand piano offers a larger soundboard in comparison to other pianos of the same length, due to its innovative “wide tail” design. This wider construction of the case means that a 5′ 10″ Boston grand has the same soundboard area as a typical 6′ 2″ grand piano, creating the power, richness, and feel of playing a much larger piano.

Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are solid (not laminated) and precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of STEINWAY & SONS — the result is a powerful, sustained tone.

Had Ben Briggs come and make some small adjustments to my recently purchased secons hand Steinway model B. Fixed up some voicing and damper issues - piano sounds much more brilliant now! Easygoing and approachable while still maintaining great focus on the job. Very patient and has high attention to detail. Would highly recommend Ben’s services! Thanks!!read more

I recently purchased a Roland FP-30 from EPG. Chris the salesperson was professional, knowledgeable and patient. He understood my skill level and didn’t try to up-sell to something that would be beyond my needs. A very pleasant experience I would recommend EPG to anyone interested in buying a piano, digital or otherwise.read more
