The piano is widely employed in classical, jazz, traditional, and popular music for solo and ensemble performances, accompaniment, and for composing, songwriting and rehearsals. Its musical versatility and its wide availability in performance venues, schools, and rehearsal spaces have made it one of the Western world's most familiar musical instruments.
Upright pianos (vertical pianos) are more compact because the frame and strings are vertical. Upright pianos are generally less expensive than grand pianos. Upright pianos are widely used in churches, schools, music conservatories, and university music programs as rehearsal and practice instruments, and they are popular models for in-home purchase.
Electronic pianos are non-acoustic; they do not have strings, tines or hammers, but are a synthesizer that simulates the piano sounds of an acoustic piano. Digital pianos can include sustain pedals, weighted keys, multiple voice options, and MIDI interfaces. Digital sound has greatly improved and if you haven't explored the possibilities, please visit our showroom.
