Harmonic Damper Setting

In 2019, Steinway & Sons introduced the Harmonic Damper setting — an innovative and globally unique technology which has been developed for the Steinway & Sons concert grand. This exclusive, revolutionary invention offers pianists new opportunities for expression and individuality with the damper pedal by reducing damper noise, thus enabling a totally new, substantial differentiated pedalling for highest artistic performance on stage.

“This is the best damping system I’ve ever played.”

Igor Levit

Martha Argerich, Jacob Karlzon, Grigory Sokolov and Igor Levit are only a few of the world’s greatest artists who have been overwhelmed by the stunning innovation of Steinway & Sons. Renowned concert halls like the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, the National Philharmonic in Warsaw and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki trust in the advantages of the Harmonic Damper Setting.

Clarity — Reduction of unwanted damper noise

Control — Optimised opportunities of articulation and nuanced pedalling

Sound — Significant increase and creation of new colours

The HARMONIC DAMPER SETTING demonstrates the continuous improvement that sets Steinway & Sons apart as the leading innovator of the modern piano.

Currently the harmonic damper setting is only available in Europe.

A Steinway is a Steinway — for good reasons

To call a genuine grand or upright of Steinway & Sons one’s own is an overwhelming feeling. Far more than just an exquisite instrument, it is an instrument of the highest expression and creativity. A Steinway intimately connects artist and listener, and invites its owner to join a tradition of musical perfection, making it an invaluable investment.
