I find acoustic upright pianos quite loud and unbearable. This is also because my recently developed hyperacusis but I think I always found it so when I was even much younger; I would use the silent pedal because the loudness frightened me a bit. Whenever I have time to have my jazz piano lesson, I have to put my earplugs(still loud compared to my digital piano.)
So my question is, isn't the accoustic piano too loud that it risks player's hearing? And is the grand piano so much more loud than the upright piano?
