Sitting right on the border of a ‘baby grand’ and ‘studio grand’ label, the 161 deftly does both: fits a smaller room without overpowering the space, but also provides a full sound easily mistaken for a 5’3″. Taking advantage of Perzina’s signature wide-tail design, the piano has dramatically larger strings and soundboard area than other pianos in its price range as well as size, and delivers a a sound that is clear, clean, and with excellent sustain.

It also achieved the same quality rating as Yamaha and Kawai, meaning that for customers in the 10-20k price range, there’s now a third option which delivers credible, high-quality instrument selection.
