Case - (Musical Instruments Piano) Glossary of Antique Terms C

Case - (Musical Instruments, Piano) The Case is the cabinet or exterior wooden parts of the piano. All exterior parts of the piano - top, sides, arms, music shelf, wallboard, etc. - taken as a whole. Although the proto-typical veneer is usually ebony, many other woods such as mahogany and walnut are often used. The choice of wood or condition of the case does not affect sound quality. Also referred to as the rim on a grand piano.
