I’d be weary about investing my money in an upright, for you see, they’re the first to go whence to revolution hits the fan!
The upright came about as a compromise, and this shows like a fly swimming around in your soup!
It made sense back then to shrink a piano into its smallest form for the purposes of saving space and money, but this came at a price (no pun intended):
Over the years the returns continued to diminish to a point whence an alternative was of essence: cue in the modern hybrid!
So yes, I’d take an N3X over a fancy upright any day of the week, and unlike that fancy upright, my N3X has the potential of being anything it wants to be; for god’s sake, it can even be a harpsichord if you so wish it, but it could also be a Steinway, or even both at the same time!
Imagine the Goldbergs played on an N3X running two VSTs simultaneously (Steinway/Harpsichord), imagine how much fun that would be……
Well, imagine no more, thanks to a thing called modern technology; which the upright ain’t!
I’m sorry, but I truly hate the upright; even the European, tall, fancy one(s)!
