These pianos fall into a catagory called verticals . Height is the main difference here. Spinets range from 36? to 39? high. Consoles range from 39? to 44? high.

A tuner would normally play a little bit..but not like a professional. So its not a compulsory criteria. Tuning is done by listening to beats between intervals. He would ideally have knowledge of chord structures and chord progressions

Why are grand pianos better than verticals?

Show previous answers

Manish replied | 07/06/2016

because strings arranged in grand piano are horizontal,so more space for sound...but in upright pianos,they are vertically arranged which results in less space for sound.

Anuvrat replied | 06 Apr

That is not necessarily always the case.
A good boston/essex upright is far far better than most baby grand pianos. The basic and most important difference is of the resonance due to the length of the strings. Grands produce a much louder and resonate longer than uprights

How can I tell if my piano has ivory keytops?

0 0

Ajith replied | 04/05/2016

One way is to look for ?veins? on the surface: ivory keys will have a fine line between the keytop and the stem, as they?re produced in three parts (key, stem, and front).

0 0

Tusara replied | 06/05/2016

Real ivory keytops are in two pieces, a head piece and tail piece. Look for a dividing line at the point the key gets narrower. If the keytop is one piece, it's plastic. If it's in two pieces, it's probably real ivory.

At least once in a year. But also depends on its use.

Serene replied | 22/06/2016

Hi Rajan, if the piano is a new one then ideally we could get it tuned twice in the first 3 months. After that, if you are using at home them once every year would be ideal. However, if you are playing consistently for long hours then every six months would be a good way to go. Hope it helps..

Tusara replied | 06/05/2016

If a key sticks all the way down and won't come back up, the cause is usually something caught between the keys, such as a coin or paper clip or other foreign object. So please clean it and once it's done for the next time onward please clean your hand before starting playing.

contact chennai Musimusical , YAMAHA showroom, Casio showroom They are all PIANO Instruments Dealers.

Serene replied | 22/06/2016

The primary criteria is your budget. Having selected it, it will basically boil down to a few things. Firstly, do you like the color of the piano sound. This is very subjective. Secondly, where is it made? (German pianos are still considered best), Thirdly, after sale service and warranty. Hope this helps in deciding your manufacturer and dealer.

Mainly because of change in climate and based on daily practice.

Serene replied | 22/06/2016

Since a piano has strings, when often played it tends to loosen. One another major factor is the change in climatic conditions. Also, if you have moved your piano around it will need a tuning.

As a parent, you want to make sure your beginning piano student has a good experience while learning to play, but you?re probably not ready to go out and buy a baby grand. That?s fine. Youc van go for a digital piano for the beginner students. That will be well enough to compelte the initail levels and can be used till an intermediate range.

Depends on the brand of the piano. There are normally about 230 strings (the lower register uses two strings per key, and the lowest octave or so has only one string per key).

Depends on the brand of the piano. There are normally about 230 strings (the lower register uses two strings per key, and the lowest octave or so has only one string per key). Each key when pressed exerts tens of thousands of pounds of pressure on the strings, and as there are 88 keys on the standard grand (Bösendorfer Imperial Grands have 100 keys), I am unable to do the arithmatic, but it is a very high amount of tension. Most of the tension is easily absorbed by the castiron frame. «less

Tusara replied | 06/05/2016

It depends on the piano. Each note has three strings in the treble, two strings in the tenor and part of the bass, and only one in the very low bass. One of ours has 65 trebles (X 3=195), 12 tenor/bass (X 2=24), and 11 single low bass, so it comes out to 230.

Before buying think about your requirement. e.g. Spinet is smallest piano however Upright is little bigger than this.
But w.r.to sound quality it's better to buy. In the other end, Grand piano is the best but if room is small then go for Upright. hope this helps you for understanding...
