EUP-111 Classic Upright
Height 44"

The EUP-111 is a classic mid-size upright that delivers incredible value and performance at every level. After exhaustive research, we know of no similarly-priced piano, by any manufacturer, that comes close to its structural integrity, depth and character of tone, and full compliment advanced design features.

UNIFORM PRODUCTION

Unlike any other similarly-priced brand that we have found, ALL ESSEX PIANOS ARE MADE THE SAME. The features, materials, and craftsmanship remain constant from model to model and are not reduced or altered to meet lower price points on smaller models.

Advanced Features

Premium Solid Spruce Soundboard

All the finest pianos have premium solid-spruce soundboards, but spruce soundboards are not created equal. A premium soundboard will be made of straight-grain solid spruce (not laminated) with a minimum of 8 grains per inch and be free of knots and irregularities. These qualities ensure overall structural integrity and even distribution of vibrations. Most manufacturers do not specify anything beyond solid vs. laminated, allowing for a wide variance in wood quality.

Tapered Soundboard Construction

To promote flexibility, the soundboard is sanded down to be thinner from treble to bass. Because the board is able to vibrate more freely, bass notes sound richer and fuller and overall tone and dynamic range is improved.

Vertically Laminated Bridges

Originally patented by Steinway in 1880, this groundbreaking design is now found in nearly every high-performance piano in production. The solid bridge is replaced with multiple layers of wood, like a layer-cake on its side. This design transfers vibrations from the strings to the soundboard most efficiently and with the least loss of energy. This improves every aspect of tone, projection, sustain, and dynamic range.

Reinforced Hammers

Dense under-felt is applied before the white hammer felt is glued and fastened to the hammer molding. This reinforcement will help the hammer retain its shape through years of impact with the strings. Often overlooked and not something that will cause an issue right away, this is a feature many manufacturers will eliminate in order to cut costs.

5-Post Back Frame

This piano has 5 back posts with a cross sectional surface area under 400cm. The CSA is calculated by multiplying the width and depth of a post, times the number of posts, and it is a good indicator of an upright piano's structural integrity.
