The Grand Piano is a craftable Pre-Hardmode Big instrument. It releases pale wave projectiles that can ricochet off of a tile once and pierce multiple enemies, but each projectile loses 25% of its current damage for each enemy pierced. While held, the String Timer will appear below the player; the weapon's effects vary based on whether or not the timer is over a marker when attacking, as well as how long the rhythm has been held. When used, it empowers nearby players and the user with the Defense I empowerment.
Correctly attacking while the timer is over a marker will increase the weapon's damage by 4%, which stacks with successive correctly timed attacks up to 120% increased damage.
- Once the bonus damage has reached 40%, the pale projectile will bounce against tiles an additional time and the piano will empower nearby players and the user with the Defense II empowerment.
- Once the bonus damage has reached 80%, the pale projectile will bounce against tiles two additional times and the piano will empower nearby players and the user with the Defense III empowerment.
Its best modifier is Fabled.
