About Upright Pianos
Upright pianos are differentiated based on their size.
Spinet pianos: are usually around 36 inches tall.
Console pianos: are approximately 40-44 inches tall.
Studio pianos: are around 45 inches tall.
Professional pianos: are 48 inches tall and higher
The taller the upright piano, the greater the "action" or number of moving parts the piano provides. An upright piano has around 5,000 to 6,000 moving parts, whereas a grand piano has an average of 10,000. Because of this distinction and other construction techniques, grand pianos are often found in the homes and studios of more serious piano players.
