Baby Grand Piano- Will it Fit in My Room?

baby grand piano

I learned long ago that of the two types of piano – the Vertical and the Grand – the Grand is the superior model. For many piano-lovers and owners such as myself, however, the full-sized, concert Grand is well beyond my pay-grade. Because of its superior sound, it is fortunate that smaller models exist, with the smallest being the baby Grand piano, which is just a miniature rendition of the wing-shaped, horizontal concert Grand.

The very next question I had after taking in a baby Grand piano at the renowned Cooper Piano establishment in Atlanta was “will this piano actually fit in my room?” The answer was, of course, a resounding “Yes!” Unless my home was a mansion with extra-wide doors, there’s simply no way that a Parlor Grand or concert Grand piano  – the next largest size – would make it inside in one piece. The baby Grand piano was made specifically for this purpose; with fabulous acoustic engineering that leads it t retain almost the full timbre and range of the master class.

These dimensions can fit readily into most any room; there are several top-notch brands that produce these scaled-down versions of the concert Grand pianos they also manufacture.

Cooper Piano has several of these world-famous baby Grand pianos available at just about any point in time, whether they are the beautifully-strung Samick baby Grand. The five-feet-five-inch Baldwin baby Grand, or the exquisitely-made Kohler and Campbell will both fit in my room. All of these Grand pianos would fit in my room, and so I don’t need to sacrifice my preferred type of piano – the Grand – in favor of the Vertical model of piano, just to save space.
