Like the b2, the b3 incorporates a solid spruce soundboard, but, apart from its large cabinet, it also has 5 back posts rather than 4, and this all contributes to the b3’s greater depth in the sound. Being taller it also has much longer strings and a larger soundboard, which again ensures that the sound can sing out far more fully and richly, and its longer keys enable the pianist to have more control at the keyboard.
