IT is no reflection upon the upright piano to
prefer the grand. The larger sounding board
area permits greater tone volume, moreover,
unlimited vibrating space, gives a frcq and un
restricted "grand" quality to the tone.
The colorful tone of the Hobart M. Cable
upright rises to supreme heights of musical
richness in the small grand. In all but size,
it is a concert grand, while the simple beauty
of case design, in art mahogany, makes com
pelling appeal to the cultivated taste.
Occupies same space.
Costs same as good upright.
