In the years since, an amazing variety of makers and types have emerged. However, in the final count, the pianist and her instrument have largely remained unchanged for hundreds of years.
Hard as it may be to believe for most non-pianists, the piano is basically a harp. Imagine a harp laid on its side with little hammers connected to the keys and you've got the picture. There are thick, deep-sounding bass strings and thin, higher tenor strings.
If you're a budding pianist on the market for a new piano, flex your fingers and get ready to tickle those keys. Getting hands on with some of the great makers is the only way for a pianist to decide which instrument will tickle her fancy.
From the style of instrument, including the grand, baby grand, keyboard, upright, and electric, to the maker, including Yamaha, Kawai, Kimball, Steinway, Roland, and Baldwin, pianists will definitely let their piano do the talking.
