Ritmuller GH170R Grand Piano


Review: The Ritmuller GH170 grand piano is one of the more popular models in Pearl River manufacturing. At 1 meter 70cm in length (approximately 5’7″), this is a perfect size for any home. I perceive the touch as being relaxed and while being firm, it doesn’t come across as requiring substantial effort to play. It’s also resonant and musical in tone. Resonance is one of those elusive terms that often gets bantered about but I feel that the GH170 has a singing and colorful tone that presents well. While the bass and mid range are conservative, the top has a substantial brilliance. When you compare the Ritmuller to other grand pianos, especially for its price, it represents excellent value. ~ Glen Barkman
