from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2006

Marvel at how 40,000 pounds of tension are wound up in the 200 strings of a concert grand at the Steinway & Sons historic Queens, New York, factory, built in 1873. Watch craftsmen mold 18 rock-hard layers of maple, and calibrate the hammers and keys to produce the tone and feel that have set the standard in piano design.
