Finding a Piano
A piano is never just a piano. As such, even if you're shopping a sale, you should understand what you want or need from the get-go, be it a model that saves space, one that's built for practicing, or one that can affordably complete your concert or performance facility:
- Grand Pianos: This is the original, plain and simple. Concert models are nearly nine feet long, while baby grand pianos are a space-saving five-foot long alternative. Producing the most resonant sound and the most natural action, grand pianos situate the strings horizontally, allowing gravity to assist with how the hammers and dampers move.
- Upright: For a practice piano, uprights have been the choice for years by conservatories, music schools and homeowners wanting an acoustic, fully natural sound and feel. Upright pianos arrange the strings so that they run top to bottom - and are thus perpendicular to the keys. Because of the vertical shape, uprights are ideal when you don't have the space for a full grand or baby grand but want an acoustic piano.
- Digital and Hybrid: These technologies took off in the 1980s, and today, digital and hybrid pianos blend a close-to-authentic feel while playing back samples of an acoustic piano. As a benefit, these models conserve space, are easily portable, and often let you plug in a set of headphones for practicing.
