Types of Pianos

There are three basic types of piano's outstanding common. A grand piano, harpsichord, piano and an upright piano. Even if a grand piano is common to most people's vocabulary and can be easily identified most people do not know the difference between a spruce and an amount. Both types are upright piano or upright, but spruce is much smaller. The top of the piano is usually only a few inches to a foot above the keyboard. In addition, invisible, spruce has a different type of mechanical action which lies below the level of the keys. It transfers the movement of the keys chains differently to a vertical position. In an upright piano action lies above the level of the keys. This means that the top of the piano should be a certain height above the keyboard tray to make room for the action. Therefore the top of an upright piano must be at least one foot and a half to slightly above the level of the keys.

People choose the type of piano often depending on how much space available. A grand piano requires a significant amount of space, the largest are at least four feet wide and four and a half feet in length. They require space on the ground accordingly. They have another type of action or a game mechanic that is preferred by pianists of his touch more sensitive. They also usually have a chain length greater than allowing their tone or sound is more pleasant and balanced. A large vertical may also have a long chain length which makes it preferable to a small spruce. However, neither a spinet or upright piano have the same action a great favorite. Space-wise, it is much easier to place an upright piano, spinet or upright, a grand piano.

In general, a grand piano is the most expensive of the three. But the brand, the condition and age of a piano will influence its price. In some cases, a spruce or an amount may be more expensive than a large if it is a well known brand and is in mint condition or blank. All other conditions being equal a spruce is the least expensive option. Market prices used piano are not compatible and you might find a gem or undercharging a lemon too expensive. It is better to be well informed or consult your local piano tuner for advice.

In summary spruce are the low cost option, but less desirable as an instrument. Great are the preferred instrument, but are generally more expensive and require more floor space. A vertical is usually a better instrument of a spruce, but more expensive and they take a little more room.
