The horizontal design of grand pianos allows for optimum sound and tone control. Longer strings help produce a richer tone with more power in the bass. The action, or keyboard on a grand opposed to an upright works with gravity as opposed to horizontal springs to release the hammers. The design of the action allows for much quicker response, wider dynamic range and much easier control.
Popular in homes and studios, upright pianos are an excellent choice instrument as they take less room than a grand piano and are more affordable. Different models within brand makes have different features and uses. We have models appropriate for the beginner up to the advanced player.

The NEW Boston UP-120S Performance Edition II is imbued with the classic Boston touch and tone and is optimized for any music room — at school or at home. Height: 47.5″
After extensive market research, Steinway & Sons has designed the Boston UP-120S PE-II, a new upright piano in the Boston line that fulfills the needs of serious students of piano and musicians of all ages, providing a wide range of tonal color and evenness of sound across the entire range of the keyboard.
The action and keyboard have been newly designed to maximize repetition and touch sensitivity, allowing the pianist to maximize the beautiful tonal color ranges of the piano. The UP-120S PE-II has among the largest back posts of any upright piano of its size.
Based on popular demand, the UP-120S PE-II is available in a high gloss Ebony Polish polyester finish, as well as a Walnut Satin lacquer finish.
Boston uprights offer the same standards of excellence which characterize all instruments designed by STEINWAY & SONS. A Boston upright will give you the same opportunities to express your musical skill as a grand.
In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has lower string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.
Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of STEINWAY & SONS — the result is a powerful, sustained tone.
