Often imitated but never duplicated, there's simply no other instrument that can take the place of the venerable piano - not only in the music community, but also in our collective imagination. That may sound cheesy, but there's no denying that it's true. Acoustic pianos are among the world's most iconic instruments, and even the best electronic models can't perfectly replicate their beautiful sound. So whether you're a music teacher looking for an authentic classroom piano, a concert hall owner in need of a showpiece for performances and recitals, or a passionate piano player wanting an instrument for your own home, you'll find what you need in the lineup of acoustic pianos.
There are, of course, two main styles of acoustic piano: upright and grand. When space is at a premium or the budget is on the tighter side, an upright piano like the Suzuki Acoustic Pianos SZV-48 Acoustic Vertical Piano 48" is generally the way to go. This particular instrument comes fitted with German-made Roslau strings, hand-wound and mounted on a large soundboard, giving it a fantastic voice and projection. From the 17-ply cross-grained pinblocks to Suzuki's special slow-closing cover, the attention to detail is plain to see in the way this piano is built as well as the way it performs.
When it comes to the most high-end concert settings, or making the biggest visual and acoustic impact in a private home, a grand piano is the way to go, without a doubt. They don't have to be enormous, though - for instance, the Suzuki Acoustic Pianos SZG-53 Acoustic Grand Piano is just 5'3", which makes it a top contender if you've got your heart set on a grand piano but just don't have the space for a full nine-footer. Like its upright cousin, it's a great example of what to look for in a quality acoustic piano, built with AAA Canadian spruce for the soundboard, and a top-shelf selection of parts from end to end.
Since acoustic pianos are not the kind of instrument a delivery truck can just drop off and go on its merry way, these are generally offered with white glove delivery service. That includes professional unboxing and moving of the piano into place, as well as final tuning and inspection, and removal of all boxes and packing materials. So when your new acoustic piano arrives, the moving team won't leave until it's completely set up and ready to play - which is good news, because there's no doubt that at least one person will be waiting to start tickling the ivories right away!
