FOR SALE:

A 2010 ESSEX MODEL EGP-155 BABY GRAND PIANO. 5' 3", HIGH-GLOSS MAHOGANY CASE. LIKE NEW!

THE ESSEX PIANO LINE IS DESIGNED BY STEINWAY & SONS, AND MANUFACTURED BY PEARL RIVER (CHINA'S LARGEST PIANO MAKER). THEY HAVE BEEN SOLD EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH AUTHORIZED STEINWAY DEALERS SINCE 2001. Since Steinway's own baby grands start at $75,000, The Essex and Boston lines both offer some more affordable options, while maintaining Steinway's high standards of quality.

*A new Essex Classic EGP-155 lists for about $15,000 in ebony. This mahogany finish used to be available for an extra $2000, but is no longer offered. The low price reflects China's low labor costs, not the quality of the instrument.

*One owner. Bought new in 2010.

*Cosmetic condition: like new. No scratches, dings, dents, water stains, or even sun-fading. The glossy finish is waterproof, durable, and easy to clean.

*Very minimal wear on hammers, bushings, dampers, and other action parts. The tuning pins are still very tight, so it holds its tune with no problem. Played very little, but well-maintained since it was new.

*Recently tuned, cleaned, and fully regulated. All necessary adjustments have been made for optimal tone and touch.

*Wonderful tone: Deep bass notes, a rich and warm tenor section, and a sparkling treble. The overall tone is abit closer to that of a Steinway Model S than to a mass-market Yamaha or Kawai.

*Moderate and even playing action.

*Includes matching artist bench, with leather upholstery and adjustable height.

Pianos made by: Designed by Steinway & Sons, made in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China by Guangzhou Pearl River Piano Group Ltd.

"Essex pianos are designed and engineered in New York by Steinway & Sons and made in China at the Pearl River factory. Steinway introduced its Essex line of pianos in early 2001 with a limited offering of models made by Young Chang, and the brand kept an unusually low profile in the piano market for a number of years. In 2006, a major relaunch of Essex included a new and very complete line comprising 35 grand and 31 vertical models and finishes."

"The Essex grands are available in 5′ 1″ (EGP-155) Classic and French Provincial styles and 5′ 8″ (EGP-173) Classic style. The Classic is offered in ebony high-polish polyester and satin lustre (semigloss) finishes, as well as sapele maghoany veneer and white; the French Provincial is offered in brown cherry satin lustre."

​"Like Steinway’s Boston pianos, the 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; radial bracing (in grands); and staggered backposts (in verticals)."

"Steinway has put an immense amount of time and effort into the relaunch of Essex, and over 75,000 pianos have been sold since its original launch in 2001. The pianos are entirely new designs by Steinway engineers, not warmed-over designs from other companies. Steinway has a permanent office in Shanghai, China, and employs its own staff of Steinway concert technicians who oversee quality and inspect the pianos made in the Asian factory. I expect that the quality of the Essex pianos will be toward the upper end of what these factories are capable of producing. So far, feedback from piano technicians confirms this expectation."
