The Ritmuller name has been around for a very long time in the piano world and actually began back in 1795 in Germany. The Pearl River Piano Company in China began producing pianos under this name again around 2009 after completely redesigning them from the bottom with master European piano makers. The Pearl River company is the biggest piano maker in the world today, and therefore their Ritmuller project was one that the piano world was very excited about, and they sure delivered!
The Ritmuller line of pianos was conceived to fill a global market need and in fact constant request – to have a piano with leading design and materials, and of European style, but at a sliver of the price of what European pianos cost.
The Ritmuller UP121R model is 47.6” in height and therefore categorized as a ‘full size, 48” upright”. A piano of this size provides a sufficient string length and soundboard size for musicians of all skill levels to work with.
This Ritmuller upright features many premium offerings such as: an all-wood action made of hard rock maple, a vertically laminated and hand notched maple bridge with maple bridge cap, German Roslau strings, an extruded aluminum action rail as well as a 17-ply maple pinblock.
This combination of features, height, sound, feel and price on the Ritmuller UP121RB Studio Upright piano makes it a very popular choice in the 100 + countries they get sold in and seem to check off all of the boxes for parents, teachers, students, and professionals
