Ritmuller R9 Grand Piano

The Ritmuller R9 Salon Grand is the larger of the two premium baby grand pianos from Pearl River, (R8 is the smaller at 4’11”). At a robust 5’3″ this starts to push the upper limits of the baby grand label…just as it pushes the musical constraints of the term as well. The piano is clearly built with affordable musical performance in mind, not just an aesthetic touch for a home; its spec and design are more ambitious than its Pearl River cousin the GP160, and it’s instantly evident upon playing just the first few notes. The sustain and presence are noticeably improved and the treble introduces a true complexity that strains to break through in the smaller and less expensive models.
