Essex (by Steinway) – Model EGP173 (5’8″) – grand piano w/Piano Disc IQ Player System **SOLD**
The Menchey Music Lancaster, PA Piano Gallery has recently received this like-new recent model Steinway-Essex model GP173 (5’8″) grand piano that is now available to the next very fortunate buyer! It is rare to receive a piano like this that is priced thousands less than a new comparable model. This is a one-owner instrument that was located in a local non-smoking residence. This instrument is equipped with a Piano Disc IQ player system which gives it the ability to play numerous songs from libraries through an app on your personal device.
Essex pianos are designed and engineered in New York by Steinway & Sons and made in the Pearl River factory. In 2006, a major relaunch of Essex included a new and very complete line of pianos. The Essex grands are available in 5′ 1″ (EGP-155) and 5′ 8″ (EGP-173) Classic style. This Classic 5’8″ instrument is finished in beautiful polished ebony.
The Steinway-Essex line was designed with a lower tension scale and incorporates many Steinway-designed refinements. Included in these are a wide tail design that allows the bridges to be positioned closer to the more lively, central part of the soundboard, smoothing out the break between bass and treble. This and a thinner, tapered solid-spruce soundboard, and other scaling differences, produce a tone with a longer sustain. Other Steinway-designed features include an all-wood action with Steinway geometry, and with rosette-shaped hammer flanges, like those used in Steinway grands, to preserve hammer spacing; pear-shaped hammers with reinforced shoulders and metal fasteners; vertically laminated bridges with a solid maple cap; duplex scale; and radial bracing.
This fine instrument has been tuned and prepped by our professional staff. The Piano Disc player system has been calibrated, tested and updated by a certified Piano Disc technician. The total includes a factory matching bench and one complimentary in-home tuning. Our professional movers will handle every detail of delivery for a very nominal charge.
