Year after year, Steinway & Sons is the overwhelming choice of concert pianists. No other piano has ever been so revered by those who count on performance the most. With methodical and consistent improvement, Steinway's commitment to building the best piano possible is passed from generation to generation.
Boston Pianos were designed from the ground up to not only stand up to the rigors of institutional use, but also to provide the nuance necessary to train to the highest levels of technique. An unqualified success, BOSTON PIANOS by Steinway & Sons are trusted to deliver performance well above their price and to serve in any capacity not yet filled by a Steinway.
Building on the success of Boston, the Essex pianos were developed by STEINWAY & SONS in the year 2000, using the same core design features and uncompromising commitment to high-quality materials. Automated and assembly-line production brought the cost down to about half that of a Boston, but by every measure, Essex is the best in its class, setting a new standard for affordable pianos.

When over 200 top-schools choose Steinway, Boston, and Essex pianos exclusively and no other manufacturer can claim even one exclusive school, clearly something special is going on. Only Steinway & Sons has developed a full line of pianos in which EVERY CLASS OF PIANO IS BUILT THE SAME. Steinway never eliminates core-design features or alters material specifications on smaller pianos simply to meet a lower price.
The EUP-123S upright has the same soundboard vibrating surface area of a 5' 8" grand piano, making it powerful enough to lead choral, concert, and musical theater programs from classroom to auditorium.
Longevity and performance later in life is directly related to a piano's structural integrity. The industry-leading 500 square centimeter cross-sectional area of the EUP-123S 5-post backframe is 250% larger than that of the Yamaha P-22 and 210% larger than that of the Yamaha U1. The Essex EUP-123S is built like no other in its price range to withstand the rigors of school …more
To date, STEINWAY & SONS IS THE ONLY MANUFACTURER WE CAN FIND who commits in writing the number of grains-per-inch required for their spruce soundboard material. All manufacturers use spruce, but only Steinway commits to an 8-grains-per-inch standard you can count on in every Boston and Essex piano.
Nearly all the major manufacturers employ vertically laminated bridges in their high-end grands, because this design transmits more energy from vibrating strings into the soundboard. This provides more power, better tone, and longer sustain. However, out of Steinway, Yamaha, and Kawai, STEINWAY & SONS IS THE ONLY MANUFACTURER to include vertically laminated bridges in their upright pianos, like the Essex EUP-123S.
The polyester finish on the Essex EUP-123S is seven times thicker and ten times stronger than lacquer. It is impervious to spills, heat resistant, light resistant and it completely seals the wood. In short, it is the finest, most protective finish that can be applied to a piano. Just what you need to keep your piano looking beautiful for decades of performance.
The EUP-123S features nearly five feet of music desk area to hold 6 or more sheets of music. If you do not have a page turner, this feature is a lifesaver! In addition, the studio lid and lid prop open for sound to travel to the player for monitoring during concerts.
Extra-wide double-rubber casters roll easier on tile and carpeted floors and are quite efficient for occasional moving. For frequent moving or traveling from one end of the school to the other, we offer free installation with the purchase of heavy-wheel dollies.
A brass key locks your key-cover and top board to prevent unauthorized use and prevent pencils and other items from being dropped into the body of the piano.
