How Steinway pianos were made in the 1920’s !

We came across this truly brilliant video by Steinway, an early promotional video that was never actually released for It’s intended purpose.

In the 1920’s Steinway was producing pianos at a rate of knots that could challenge any other quality manufacturer, a period when cost cutting on materials and man power would not of been entertained. This golden age of piano making shows the craftsmanship and hard work that went into producing the finest instruments available.

It’s interesting to think that some of us may of played one of the Steinways produced by the craftsman seen in this 1929 video.
