Steinway Musical Instruments, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiaries, engages in the design, manufacture, marketing, and distribution of musical instruments in the United States and internationally. Segments The company operates in two segments, Pianos, and Band & Orchestral Instruments. Piano The Pianos segment offers pianos under Steinway & Sons, Boston, and Essex brands. Steinway & Sons Pianos: The company offers two premium-priced product lines under the Steinway & Sons brand, grand pianos and upright pianos. The smaller grands are sold to both individual and institutional customers, while the concert grands are sold primarily to institutions. Steinway & Sons also offers art case pianos designed by either Steinway master craftsmen or artisans. The company’s upright pianos are intended to satisfy the needs of institutions and other customers who are constrained by space limitations.

Conn, Leblanc, King, Armstrong, Holton, Yanagisawa, Vito, Emerson, Avanti, Noblet, and Benge brand names.
