A Model O is a good bit larger than a Model S or Model M, giving it an edge when it comes to sound and tonal quality. These pianos feature a bass that is powerful and deep with a clear treble and overall rich tonal range. These pianos were designed with the limitations of smaller room sizes in mind but do not compromise on the quality of the playing experience. Later dubbed a ‘living room grand’, these pianos produce the iconic Steinway sound while taking up less room than a Model A or B. A new Model O measures 5’ 10 ¾” in length – a modern classic which balances convenient size with the legendary Steinway sound.
The Model O served as a testbed of sorts for a number of cabinet designs now associated with the modern grand piano. This includes the square arm case design and the now common, octagonal spade style legs. Due to a well-engineered scale design, these pianos output a sound that is beyond what many expect from a piano that is under six feet in length. Many accomplished pianists love the Model O for its reasonable size yet powerful sound and perfect touch. There is a reason 98% of concert pianists choose to play Steinway instruments!
