BABY GRAND PIANOS
Baby Grand Pianos
Serving St George I Washington I Hurricane I Santa Clara UT
As the name implies, baby grand pianos are smaller than grand pianos. There’s something special about them too. If you are considering purchasing one, you should keep several things in mind when weighing your options. First is its size. Most baby grand pianos have a length between 59 and 71 inches and are five feet wide at the keyboard and three feet wide at the tail. This means you will need a large area in your home in which to place it. A wider tail will give you better sound because of longer bass strings, which adds to the tone and volume. The tone of a good baby grand piano is deep, rich and sonorous. Place your baby grand piano on an interior wall away from windows, vents and sources of extreme moisture heat or cold to protect your instrument from warping and going out of tune frequently.
Baby grand pianos are ideal for music lovers, serious advanced students and professionals. Think of your baby grand as a long-term investment that will keep its worth with proper tuning and care.
