Steinway prices arc actually less than these of some inferior pianos, because Steinway factory methods pro vide production of the world's finest pianos at minimum ' cost, and because Steinway business policy will net permit pricing beyond legitimate profits. Exces sive pricing is used te cover various dis counts, commissions te persons recom mending the ever-priced pianos, and unreasonable allowances for old pianos three things never tolerated in a Steinway house.
