Review: The Knabe WMV 245 upright piano I would describe as bold and bright. At all dynamic levels ~ pianissimo, mezzo forte and fortissimo, the piano responded with firm touch, above the average touch of most pianos. So if you like solid feel, this piano is for you. Tone, also is on the brighter side with a somewhat brassy bass and mid range followed by a sparkling top end. Overall, it gives the impression of being a solid piano and represents good value. I believe it also looks better in person than in pictures. ~ Glen Barkman
