Boston by Steinway & Sons UP-132E
The largest Boston upright piano, the UP-132E Performance Edition provides a rich and powerful sound that rivals many grand pianos.
The Steinway-designed Boston piano – long unrivalled in its class and unmatched in value – has been significantly enhanced with the introduction of the new Performance Edition. The Boston Performance Edition features improvements in materials, specifications and performance never before seen in the mid-price range.
In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension which allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain and more singing quality in the tone. 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.
Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also 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.
Fine veneers enhance the elegance of the Boston pianos, available in walnut and mahogany satin or polished finishes, as an alternative to the classic ebonized finish. Each one is designed to delight the eye and enhance the player’s experience.
