Upright Piano For Sale in Melbourne
Upright pianos are sometimes considered the lesser cousin when compared with a grand piano. There is no question that a quality concert grand piano is the pinnacle of piano performance, thanks to their incredible size and richness of tone, sustain and depth. However, a grand piano is impractical for many settings.
Fortunately, an upright piano is an ideal alternative for smaller homes and studios, as they allow you to still enjoy the unmatched romance and beauty of acoustic music making in an instrument that requires less space and is more affordable.
Like grand pianos, upright instruments come in various sizes. The general rule is that the taller the piano, the better it will perform. This is because it will have a larger soundboard and longer strings. The best analogy is to that of a painter’s palette: a bigger piano is like having more colours. The instrument will be more refined and offer a greater range of tone and dynamics. Upright pianos begin around 109cm tall and can reach 133cm.
Upright pianos come in a range of cabinet designs from elegant homages to olden times to contemporary and modernist cabinets. Most manufacturers offer a range of colours and timber veneers in addition to the most popular high gloss black poly.
We also now offer the addition of a silent system to any of our upright pianos, allowing you to mute your instrument and turn it into a digital piano to be played silently with headphones.
