A century and a half later, the Steinway is still handcrafted with pride in the U.S.A.

Steinway Through the years

In 1836, Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg completed his first forte piano secretly in the kitchen of his house He would immigrate to America in 1850 with his sons to pursue a passion for tonal excellence and to create a more perfect piano. Three years later, he became Henry E. Steinway and founded Steinway & Sons. Today, Steinway pianos are still handmade exclusively in the Steinway New York and Hamburg factories, as they have been since 1880, because Steinway’s handcrafted methods result in instruments of the highest quality.
