Baby Upright

Charming short scale Upright with huge sound


Our latest addition to the Nord Piano Libary is a compact short scale piano of Swedish descent with a very distinct character.

The Baby Upright has a prominent mid with a slender bass due to the shorter strings. When pressing the sustain pedal the sound really comes alive with a lively ambience.
