Weber W114: The Perfect Studio Upright

Tips From Your Weber Piano Store

Maybe you’re perusing Bay Area piano stores to find a beautiful instrument for your precociously musical granddaughter; or perhaps you’re searching for a Weber piano because you’ve heard great things about the W114. In either case, let’s talk about the specs and capacities of the Weber W114 upright. w114Measuring in at 45-inches, this is a gorgeous instrument. Masterminded by Del Fandrich, an award-winning designer who uses skilled piano artisans to assist him, the W114 comes in satin and polish finishes, including ebony, mahogany brown, mahogany red, walnut and whites. It features excellent evenness of sound and a brilliant tonal quality. Two features that distinguish the W114 include its direct couple bass bridge and its floating soundboard, which creates a dynamic bass response. Three elements determine whether a piano sounds “beautiful”: quality, tone and volume. The W114 features an A-class northern spruce made soundboard, which has a superior co-efficient for sound transmission that leads to rich, sweet deep tones and sonorous resonance. The piano is also resistant to wear and tear. For instance, the hard maple elements provide proof against deformation. The hammers, meanwhile, are highly sensitive; and they can contact strings in less than 1/250th of a second, meaning that you essentially get an instantaneous response. Other “pluses” of the W114 include:

  • A foundry forges the frames using an electrical vacuum casting method.
  • The keyboard is built from highly elastic but low specific gravity wood that feels soft and offers a firm touch.
