Was introduced at the beginning of 2009. It is the direct descendant of the Steingraeber Liszt Grand Piano, the legendary model 205. The bass* has been enhanced and adapted to twenty-first century requirements, while the previous design has undergone only moderate alterations.
The allure of the Steingraeber 205, which has fascinated pianists like Franz Liszt, Richard Strauss, Engelbert Humperdinck and, more recently, Daniel Barenboim, has been preserved. Because of its differentiated sound spectrum and registers, this model is in use for lieder recitals, in recording studios and music conservatories (e.g., Munich, Paris, Hannover), and at New Music festivals.
* The bass has been enriched with greater volume. Comparison of the 205 and the C-212:
- Vibrating soundboard +4.8% / string length up to +5.8%
- The action, keyboard, and string lengths for notes 36-88 are identical
