Also known as verticals, upright pianos are space-efficient, and are usually placed with their back towards the wall of a room. A wide range of veneers and finishes are available, making it relatively easy to find something which is to your taste and budget. Prices of new upright pianos range from around £2,500 to £35,000 or more. Many people’s first experience of playing the piano is on an upright, and it’s the most popular option for beginners. A convenient feature of most modern uprights is the middle ‘practice’ pedal (aka muffler or celeste) which can be locked into place, enabling the pianist to play their chosen instrument without fear of disturbing others.
