The ED Seiler 168 5’6″ Grand Piano is truly GRAND. It has great tone. It also has great control. You can play it soft down to a whisper. You can also play it loud with power to spare. It sounds much bigger than it is. The Membrator soundboard helps it to have a big sound while the Abel hammers, and the really good regulation helps control the softness of the volumn. I can tell you truthfully as a piano technician and as a piano player that I have never played a piano in this size range that I like better. The Seiler Piano makers put a lot of care and expertise into the making of the ED Seiler pianos, from the CNC parts to the voicing of the hammers. What a piano.
