Rounded-Front Music Desk Frame End Panels

(Click for larger image)

VCP’s Rounded-Front Music Desk Frame End Panels are designed to be used either with our spanning rails or the piano’s original rails. Steinway used this rounded-front design from the 1870’s until about 1920. We manufacture this part, sold in pairs, in maple-for-ebony, mahogany, and Brazilian rosewood.
VCP manufactures this product in three widths: narrow, standard, and wide. 85-note instruments use the narrow dimension, virtually all 88-note models A,B, and O employ the standard panel, and 88-note models C and D require the wide dimension. Please specify when ordering. If in doubt, please furnish a width dimension of the inside of the rim along with the piano’s model and serial number.
