     What You Should Know About Steinway Pianos - Nowinsports 

    I hate to give the is very badly written article more "clicks" but makes you wonder how many other internet articles are written with so much misinformation. "Duplex tuning pins in Steinway pianos are designed to allow the strings to be tuned using either the left-hand or right-hand sides of the instrument." That's just ONE in a long line of our misinformation in this Steinway article.

    Steinway should sue this guy for writing such bullshit. There is almost nothing in the article that's true. (Steinways were made in Los Angeles?)

    What a hilarious article. Actually it's standard search engine fodder from a website optimisation monkey company simply finding sentences in which to embed search engine terms and product links.

    https://orpheusmusicgroup dot com are the people to complain to.

    Clearly written by a bot, and I was suspicious about the link to "Mason Hamlin", and why that should be concatenated with the name Steinway. It turns out to be a piano store in suburban DC. They should be upset to be associated with such imbecility.

    Fake news, folks.

    I too was puzzled by "Steinway Mason Hamlin Piano". That's like doing a review on a Tesla Ford car.
