Located in Guangzhou, China, over the past 60 + years, Pearl River has become the biggest piano maker in the world. The company makes three lines of pianos under their own brands and also produced pianos for other companies on OEM contracts
The Pearl River UP115M5 model is one of the most affordable new upright pianos on the market, and presents some really great value to piano shoppers, who prefer having the benefits of a new piano vs. something that’s 30 + years old.
The UP115M5 belong to the Tradition Series of Pearl River pianos (the other two being the European and Prestige Series) and offers some excellent design elements for its market category such as: laminated maple bridges with solid maple caps which are hand notched, a 17-ply maple pin block and German Roslau strings among others.
The piano is 115 cm tall (or 45”) and has a very ‘current’ cabinet design. Besides being available in an Ebony Polished cabinet, Pearl ERiver also offers this model in Polished Mahogany, Polished Walnut, and Polished White to match any space and decor
The UP115M5 has found an audience with many first time piano buyers, hobbyist players and students and can be found in homes spanning over 100 countries.
If you’re looking for a piano that will ‘do the job’ without breaking the bank, then the Pearl River UP115M5 is a model to consider
Pearl River’s UP115M5 has a ‘classic’ action which is pleasant to play on. Pearl River both designs and builds their own actions and makes their keys of spruce wood and their action rails of aluminum
