This is one of the most invigorating piano sizes to play. The bass can be thunderous and yet the size does not dominate the room. At lower dynamic levels, the depth of tone is expansive and broad. Well balanced for recording, this size is considered optimal by professionals around the world. Ideal for intimate stages or halls. The down side? Cost. While smaller grand sizes can be achieved on modest budgets, grands whose size range between 1m 95 and 2m 10cm (6’5″ and 6 11″) require more framework and thus, more cost. With starting prices at $25,000 US, scroll down and you will see that some of these extra large grands can exceed $100,000! But while cost is substantial, the rewards are great. If you have never played a grand piano this size, you’ll be surprised at the depth of tone and the power. They are what make grand pianos a joy to play.
