Baby Grand Piano Prices

Baby grand piano prices can have a large range. The price range is very much determined by the size and quality of the piano. Baby grand is not a technical term describing a specific length of a piano. Baby grand pianos are usually considered to be about 5’ to 5’4” in length. However, some Asian made pianos are as short as 4’7”. You can see that there can be as much as a 9” difference in what is considered a baby grand. Baby grand piano prices can vary from under $10,000 for a less expensive Asian made piano to close to $100,000 for a baby grand piano made in Europe.

In the world of pianos, bigger is usually considered better. The reason being that a larger piano will have a longer strings and a bigger soundboard. With craftsmanship being equal, a larger piano will sound better than a smaller one. If you want better sound you should purchase a piano larger than the baby grand. However, many times a baby grand is appropriate due to budget constraints or space limitations. It is usually best to get the largest piano that you can afford and can accommodate in the room in which it will be placed.

A word about the baby grand piano prices. Today, most pianos are made in Asia. The least expensive pianos come from Asia and usually from China specifically. Most pianos with American names are actually made in China. The Chinese companies own the names and can use them on any piano they want. The Chinese manufacturers have greatly improved their quality in the last several years. One brand I particularly like is “Hailun”. They are making very nice upright and grand pianos today with excellent craftsmanship. Europe is next in production and are considered the highest quality instruments with highest prices. Masons & Hamlin and Steinway are currently the only pianos made in America. They are very high quality instruments but the prices are less then European pianos. If you can afford it, a fine European or American made piano is a great choice and is prestigious to own but isn't necessary for most people to enjoy the piano. Still, the rule of thumb is to buy the best that you can afford since quite often a piano purchase is once in a lifetime purchase.
