    Interesting Facts about the Piano:


    Christie's Auction House recently sold a Vicorian Steinway grand piano for $1.2 MILLION DOLLARS! The piano was sold to the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute of Williamstown, Massachusetts.

    The total string tension in a concert grand is close to Thirty Tons!

    That a boxed model D Steinway Grand Piano weighs 1400 Pounds !

    That six Steinways are now in the Smithsonian collection.

    The working section of the piano is called the action. There are about 7500 parts here, all playing a role in sending the hammers against the strings when keys are struck.

    A new piano should be tuned four times the first year, with the change of seasons, and at least twice a year after that.

    There are over 10 MILLION pianos in American homes, businesses, and institutions.
