The Charles R. Walter studio piano is an American hand crafted piano like all of the Charles R. Walter pianos. All of the Walter Pianos are made of Only the best materials. The bass strings are longer than most other 50-52 inch brands like Kawai or Yamaha. So if you are thinking of only a 48 inch or bigger piano you should consider the Charles R. Walter piano as a marvelous American choice. The keys on a walter studio are particularly nice and geared towards the discerning player. The geometry of the action is particularly nice and gives the player the highest degree of control. 

Charles Walter professional studio pianos are ruggedly designed to meet the most rigid school specifications and long hours of student practice. The extra-thick butcher block keybed, solid hardwood (Walnut, Oak, Cherry, or Mahogany) legs and toe-blocks, and ball bearing, double-wheeled casters make this piano ideal for situations where the piano must be moved frequently. At the same time, the clean lines of this design and recessed toe-block present a more stylish appearance.

All of the features built into the W-48 scale are also found in the studio piano. The fallboard lock is standard equipment; top locks are available on special order. Available in Ebony, Oak, and Walnut in either High Polish, Semi Polish or Satin finish. Also available in Oiled Oak and Walnut.
