Sordino®: A New, Old Tonality

Sordino was a common feature of grand pianos manufactured in the first third of the 19th century by Graf in Vienna and Erard in Paris.

Today Steingraeber is able to offer this feature once again in the form of a pedal, thanks to the inspiration of pianist Jura Margulis.
