Top Piano Quizzes & Trivia

The piano (an abbreviation of pianoforte) is a musical instrument played using a keyboard. It was invented in 1698 by an Italian, named Bartolomeo Cristofori. There is approximately 18 tons of pressure being exerted by the stretched steel piano strings.

In a concert grand, it is close to 30 tons of pressure, because the average string has about 160 pounds of tension, and there are 230 strings inside a typical piano. Also, there are over 12.000 parts in a piano, out of which 10.000 are moving.
