Jeffy cat piano problem

Hi guys, I've got a little problem. I've been looking at pianos online and in the shop for a few months now. I've narrowed it down to 2 pianos I like, but I can't get any info on them. I don't want to get my hopes up until I get some info.

1) The C. Giese Piano Company CGE model (KG-1000). I like the look of this piano but I can't find any info on it. I checked the forum and they said "not many" info was out there on this piano. I have been told it's a real nice piano but if it's not available in the Dallas area (about a 3 hr drive away), I probably won't get it. They aren't shipping to the midwest either.

2) Steinway model M. K. M. 609. I just read a review online that said it was the last of the grand pianos in the Steinway line. (I know, I just read it but I'm too curious to find out if it's true.) There seems to be little info on this piano and I've read it's a bit hard to find. I would have liked to try this piano out, but the guy I bought it from said he'd take it back. I think the guy is trying to get out of a bad deal. I would appreciate any info on this piano. I'm thinking of trading up on it.

I'm having trouble narrowing down which of these two pianos would be my preference (although they both sound great, and I'd like to pick one in the near future). They sound different enough and are a little pricey.

Any info on the C. Giese piano would be appreciated. If the M.K.M. is the last Steinway in the line, I don't really want to spend so much money for one. But I really like the C.G. piano. Any comments?

I would also appreciate a "piano nerd's" review of these two pianos. I know a lot of people would be interested.

I'll give it a try to help you out...

The C.G. Piano looks a lot like a Gagliardo piano. Their is a little bit of the same sound. Both pianos have the same build quality and they both look excellent.

I like the C.G. because it plays beautiful. It has a rich and full sound. It's like having an acoustic or concert grand piano.

The M.K.M. is the last Steinway built. The older of the two. It looks like a large grand piano. It has the same build quality as the C.G.

Both pianos have an excellent reputation and are highly sought after.

The price difference is the reason I like the C.G. so much more. It has a better tone.

For the M.K.M. I prefer the Steinway sound more and the look more of a concert grand.

I disagree with the above comment and will respond with this. I have played and been involved with these pianos for over 30 years, and I can tell you that I find no difference in tone or quality.

There are a couple of variables that have a measurable affect on the tone of the piano. The key area which is the most important is the keybed. This is where the piano strings are mounted. If the area of the keybed is too large, there will be a resonation that distorts the notes. Most manufacturers set the piano keybed so that the distance from the front of the keybed to the string is smaller than the distance from the back of the keybed to the string. A wider distance between the front and back of the keybed will cause more distortion. Most manufacturers set the distance between the back and front of the keybed to 3/8th of an inch.

The second variable is the hammer and the hammer return mechanism. This is where the hammers strike the strings. The quality of the hammers, which includes the return mechanism, can affect the way the hammer strikes the string. All of these features can be measured and recorded. In the Steinway C.G. the hammers have the exact same weight as the Steinway M.K.M. The hammers are also mounted to the same steel hammerspring. All other features are very similar.

So, why does one Steinway sound better than the other? Let's look at some of the differences.


If you listen to the "G" above the line, you will notice that it is sharp. As far as sound quality, there is a lot going on there. A Steinway is going to give you a nice quiet sound for the notes in the middle. The notes in the treble will ring clearly, but be a little sharp. The bass is flat. If you listen to the "E" above the line, you will notice that the top notes ring with a slight sharpness. The middle notes are ringing very loud and evenly. The bass has some depth. That is the difference between a Steinway and a Broadwood. A Broadwood will give you a much heavier bottom end.

Hammer and Hammer Return:

Again, here we can see a difference. The hammers have the exact same weight. Both are mounted to the same hammerspring. The only difference is that a Broadwood hammerspring is a little shorter in length than a Steinway's. The short length means the hammer can move faster. As a result, when the bass hammer strikes the string, the back of the hammerspring hits the string first, before the front does. This makes the sound have more thump. As a result, a Broadwood is going to have a heavier sound.


Here we can see where the difference lies. The Broadwood is heavier than the Steinway, which has lighter hammers. The heavier Broadwood hammers are going to sink into the string a little more and give a fuller sound. As a result, a Broadwood is going to sound more like a concert grand piano. This can be a good thing, but also a bad thing.

The best piano is the one that sounds best to you. The Steinway G sounds great, but the Broadwood E would probably not sit too well with you. If the sound of your piano is your preference, make sure to take the weight into consideration.


As you can see, the Broadwood weighs about 20 pounds. The Steinway weights about 30 pounds.

Hammered Body:

The Broadwood hammers are cast in a single block of iron. The hammer block sits in a slot on the piano case. The hammer block is what the soundboard is made of. In order to make a hammer block, you need iron or steel. In order to make steel, you need coke. Once again, the coal is being used to create the iron.

Steinway has a system to ensure the hammerblock's weight is consistent every time. Steinway has a press for the hammers. The hammers are made by a machine. The hammers are measured for weight, so the hammers are cut out of the same block of iron every time. The results are consistent hamm
