Used grand pianos still hold a tune very well and are a much more affordable option for many people who still want the distinctive high-quality sound of a grand piano. Grand pianos are often the go-to choice for many people who want to learn piano due to the level of control a pianist has over the sound. To complement that, they also produce a fuller and richer sound than most types of pianos due to their large soundboard.
If volume matters to picking a piano, choose this type. New and used grand pianos offer much more volume when their top is open than other types of pianos. This is because they were originally designed to play in large theatres and needed to be heard by everyone, regardless of their distance to the stage. Due to their design, the sound quality remains top-notch when they’re open.
This type of piano is by far the largest and the total floor space needed for the smallest grand should be at least 152cm (5ft) wide by 198cm (6.5ft) long, including bench space. They weigh a significant amount too from 500lbs to 1200lbs. New baby grand pianos offer a smaller size while uncompromising in sound if space is more of an issue.
New and used grand pianos offer the top level of sound quality in the industry. Used grand pianos, in particular, should not be discounted for providing first-rate sound and will still hold up for many years of playing countless songs.
