They're the most famous pianos in the world – but how are they made? We went behind the scenes at Steinway's Hamburg factory to find out.
The hammers are all individually checked before being fitted into a piano. If the voicer wants a more mellow tone they will stick small needles in the hammer's felt to reduce its stiffness. If they want a brighter tone the toner can apply som lacquer to the hammer.
