Pianos are one of the most beautiful instruments anyone can own or play. Grand pianos date back to the early 18th century, and since then have only grown in popularity. Besides the great sound that emanates from them, they are also great to show pieces for your collection hall, or home. I always wanted to play a classical instrument like the violin or piano but instead, I chose something jazzier; a soprano sax which I played day in and out for almost 4 years. Grand pianos are not the same as baby grand pianos. Grand pianos are one of the largest instruments and go down in size from grand to concert grand to parlor grand to baby grand.
A baby grand is usually shorter than it is wide and has strings that are shorter, thicker and stiffer than other grands. This allows the baby grand piano to sound more harmonic than the others. Many people buy baby grands instead of regular grands for three reasons. One because of the sound, two because they are smaller in size and three because they are less expensive! Some of the most popular brands of baby grand pianos are Breitenbach, Stuyvesant, Bergmann, and Baldwin. These types of pianos range from $1,000 on up to $8,000 but are worth it in the end!
If you are looking around on the Internet for a baby grand piano, then you’re in luck! Many sites online offer buyers such as you to be able to buy, rent, or bid on these types of pianos. A few good places you could look if your looking for pianos in general or a baby grand pianos is:
– Google Checkout
By the way you can also find piano stores either online or offline that are closer to your home which means you can pay less for shipping and handling or better yet have the company deliver it right to your home with no parcel service involved.
These pianos not only come in different brands and prices but also different “ages” and different kinds of woods. The woods you will find will also vary from the original black, oak, mahogany, polished mahogany, and polished snow white but there are many other different kinds of woods depending on what you are looking for. And as said above there are also different antique pianos you can buy as well. These are usually more expensive than a brand new piano but, if you’re a collector of sorts this could be something you’re looking for!
