Essex Uprights

The entry into the Steinway family of uprights — designed by Steinway & Sons in collaboration with renowned furniture designer William Faber — the Essex upright has been created in the spirit of the Steinway heritage as a tribute to the idea that beautiful piano styles and finishes can and should be possible in every price range.

The instrument is available in an array of models, sizes, and veneers to fit every décor and lifestyle.
