How are Grand Pianos Different?
The main difference between shorter and longer grand pianos is the quality of the bass tones, the quantity of sound it can produce, and the overall quality of sound. The bass strings are usually longer (in a six foot or larger grand) than in an upright piano. The tone of a piano depends mainly on the length of its string and the size of the soundboard. The longer the string, the better the sound. A Grand gives you better expression and control of the instrument, simply due to gravity effect on the action.
