Designed by Steinway & Sons, employing the unique patents and expertise that have made the Steinway synonymous with musical excellence, the Boston line of grands represent a singular achievement: a superior playing experience at a price level never before thought possible.
The best-in-class Boston grand just got even better. Boston’s new Performance Edition II now features a luxurious Pomelle Sapele veneer on the inside rim (on Ebony finish grands) and a stunning rose-gold colored plate. We’ve also upgraded to black felts for the plate, under the fallboard, and around the pedals. A rescaled bass and treble wire lower string tension provides increased sustain, better tone clarity, and a deeper, clearer bass.
The PE II also includes the major enhancements previously introduced with the original Performance Edition in 2009, including a maple inner rim (found only in the finest pianos) and the patented Octagrip™ pinblock. In combination, these enhancements further elevate the Performance Edition II to a class by itself in the mid-price range.
“You can hear the effects of the Steinway & Sons design from one end of the scale to the other.”

Featuring a maple inner rim and Octagrip pinblock, the GP-215 Performance Edition II is 7' ½" (215 cm) in length, and the grand of choice for many institutions and festivals that boast mid-sized performance venues.
At 6' 4" (193 cm), the GP-193 Performance Edition II produces a powerful yet warm sound and is an excellent choice for teaching studios.
At 5' 10" (178 cm), the GP-178 Performance Edition II is the perfect grand for any teaching studio or music room.
At 5' 4" (163 cm), the GP-163 Performance Edition II is small enough to fit in any home, but possesses the sound of a much larger grand — thanks to its widetail design.
The smallest Boston grand by size at 5' 1½" (156 cm), there is nothing small about the sound of GP-156 Performance Edition II, which benefits from a wide-tail design.
