Piano Types

Upright Piano

They can be placed in a room or even a home office, as opposed to a grand piano that needs to be placed in a dedicated room since it is so large. Upright pianos provide a great entry point into the world of piano for children and adults alike.

They are very portable, so they can be moved from one room to another as needed. They are easy to maintain and don’t require tuning as often as a grand piano does. Upright pianos are great for people who don’t have a lot of space or need a piano that is portable. They are also a great option for people who are just starting out in the world of piano. While they provide the same sound as a grand piano, they are much easier to use and come at a much lower price.

Console Piano

A console piano has a full-sized keyboard that is often octaves but can also be scales. An internal sound system is common, but an external connection can be used.

These pianos are often made of mahogany, cherry, or other high-end woods. Some are made of materials like carbon fibre. They are almost always decorated with intricate carvings and designs. Console pianos are often made by hand, and each one will have slight differences in its design and features.

Grand Piano 

Grand pianos are produced in a different way than vertical pianos. The strings and soundboard are vertical, and the hammer that strikes the strings swings up and then drops back down as it strikes. Because of this, grand pianos generally produce louder sounds and operate faster than vertical pianos.

Many different names have been given to the size of grand pianos over the years, including Gallery Grands, Parlor Grands, Studio Grands, and Baby Grands. Although there are no official requirements, a Baby Grand is usually considered to be a grand piano under 5 feet long. Concert Grands may range in size from 4’7” to 9′.

Spinet Piano

These pianos, which are 36” to 39” tall, are the smallest of the vertical pianos. Because the piano actions are compressed and connected to the keys via a rod mechanism, these pianos are difficult to maintain and adjust. They are currently unavailable for purchase.
