In the 1750's the piano took on two design routes. The English version of the piano was a heavy and complicated instrument that closely resembles today's grand pianos.
The German version of the piano was lighter and simpler. These German pianos were developed by popular makers such as Johann Andreas Stein.
As the popularity of the piano grew, and the need for it to become a solo instrument increased, larger piano models were produced in order to produce louder music. Mass production for grand pianos began in 1800's with such notable piano makers as John Broadwood & Sons, Jonas Chickering, Friedrich Bechstein, Sebastien Erard, and Henry Steinway.
In 1820, metal tubes were used in pianos to maintain string tension, and iron hitch pin plates were incorporated in the piano design. By 1843, pianos started being made using full perimeter plates, a feature used in today's modern grand pianos.
