Upright pianos are the tallest within vertical piano class. At over 55" in height, these are very tall instruments with large soundboards and long strings, capable of projecting an impressive volume. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many large uprights were manufactured in America, and vintage instruments like these are readily available; however, caution should be taken when dealing with an instrument like this, due to many unknown factors affecting the condition of the piano.
