ORION Australia is widely recognised in Western Australia for their string instruments, as it was the first category of musical instruments they released. As a company founded with a classical music mindset, eventually we expected the ORION acoustic pianos to arrive.
Starting 2017 ORION Music began prototyping, researching, and designing the next best acoustic piano in Australia - with the customers needs in mind. The company worked with countless of established musicians to gain perspective and insight into what a classical pianist would look for in a piano.
They released two models of upright acoustics; an entry-level model at 125cm height and a flagship model at 131cm height.
The first introduction from ORION Music presenting their acoustic pianos stood out to us; the obvious difference in the quality to price compared with anything we have seen.
