Real Acoustic Piano with Silent & Digital Multi-Function



As a musician, you often feel that practice time is never enough. Between your hectic schedule and your bustling social life, the only time left for piano practice may be late at night. In Singapore’s city landscape, it is difficult to play music in the wee hours of the morning without disturbing your neighbours. With the GENIO silent system, you can enjoy boundless freedom and enjoyment of music at any time of the day.

When the silent system is activated, a mute rail prevents the hammers from hitting the strings. Using highly sophisticated sensors, even the most subtle movements of the keys are captured and transmitted to you through headphones.


Sophistication with Visual Appeal


  • Slim and sleek slide out design

  • Modernistic touch screen interface*

In keeping with Steinway’s commitment to excellence, Steinway & Sons provides technical assistance in the production of Essex pianos to ensure that they are manufactured in line with the specifications established by Steinway. Furthermore, each Essex instrument is inspected by a team of highly experienced technicians trained by Steinway & Sons before it leaves the factory.

When you purchase an Essex piano, you have the option of returning it for 100% of the original purchase price if you invest in a new Steinway grand piano within ten years.


Technical details and features

Technical details and features Designed by Steinway & Sons and brought into being in collaboration with renowned furniture designer William Faber – exceptional upright and grand pianos from Steinway & Sons in different styles and veneers at a reasonable price. With their elegant design and a range of finishes, these instruments will add interest and beauty to your home.

All Essex instruments combine the latest design features and production requirements from the research and development teams at Steinway & Sons. Thanks to the processing of high-quality materials together with cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and carefully selected mechanical production methods, Essex instruments designed by Steinway & Sons provide unlimited musical enjoyment and unprecedented value for money.

An Essex upright or grand piano is an excellent asset that comes complete with the professional support of Steinway-trained technicians. You can trust in this investment without reservation, as the Steinway name is behind it. That is why the Steinway promise applies: anyone who trades in an Essex instrument for a new Steinway grand piano within ten 10 years will be reimbursed the full purchase price.

With a special shape of housing designed by Steinway & Sons, Essex grand pianos are much wider than other instruments of the same length, especially with respect to their curve. This allows the use of a larger soundboard, which creates a considerably fuller sound. The soundboard (Steinway design) is tapered towards the ends and can vibrate more freely, creating a more sonorous tone. The mechanism contains no plastic parts, being made completely from wood. It offers the necessary stability, a fast repetition rate, and a sensitive response thanks to the special geometry of the lever parts. Other Steinway features and designs have been incorporated, including notches and braces, the pinblock, the tuning pins, the strings, and the cast iron plate. In summary, all of this means that Essex pianos offer excellent value for money that is almost unprecedented.
