    I love that everything is held together with clamps. Dude was so excited he couldn't wait until it was actually completed

    I like the vertical aspect. The sound board vibrates straight to the audience, but why couldn't he flip the design and have the player at the bottom?

    So it’s just a grand piano that wants to be an upright?

    I think the people who made the upright had the same idea, except they made it practical

    A question for piano players! I was once told the touch on an upright was very different. On a piano with horizontal strings you can strike a note again before the key returns to its rest position. On an upright, you have to let the key return before you play a note again.

    (googles) Go to 2:40.
