Grand Pianos

Alone by its appearance, the grand piano gives the impression of an aristocratic instrument. In particular the concert grand pianos, which can be more than 3 meters long. But also the smaller baby grand piano is a real eyecatcher. Famous grand piano brands are of course Steinway and Bösendorfer, but also the Yamaha grand piano has a great popularity nowadays.

grand piano vs. piano

The main difference between a grand piano and a upright piano is the location of the strings. In the piano they stand upright, in a grand piano they are placed horizontally. This allows longer thinner strings to be used, which give a warmer tone in the basses.

Steinway grand piano vs. Yamaha grand piano

The American grand piano producer Steinway & Sons introduced a grand piano with cast iron frame and crossed strings in 1867 at a fair in Paris. Due to this specific positioning of the strings, the dynamic range of the instrument increased even further. Steinway’s grand piano won a prize and the technique got immediate follow-up. In the meanwhile, the design is applied in almost all grand pianos.

Yamaha grand pianos

Yamaha is a relative newcomer to the grand piano market, but quickly gained an important position. The instruments are characterized by a wonderful sound, much sustain and high quality. Because of this excellent value for money, many professionals prefer a Yamaha grand piano over a Steinway.
