Piano is a musical instrument which is being played since ages. Its strings are struck by hammer and are played with the help of a keyboard. There are many types of piano and grand piano is one of them. This type of piano has horizontal frame and strings. Grand pianos are available in many sizes.
The size of concert grand is between 2.2m and 3m. Parlor grand is between 1.7m and 2.2m while the smaller baby grand is almost 1.5m. The length of the grand piano is measured with the lid closed from the front of the keyboard to the farthest end of the piano along the spine.
The larger the piano, the richer is its sound and has lower inharmonicity of strings. If the piano has short and thick strings, it will create more inharmonicity. To tackle inharmonicity, octaves are stretched. Smaller grands are used in homes whereas larger grands are used for concerts.
