Its features strings by Mapes or Roslau with longer speaking lengths than common upright pianos, so this vertical package makes no sacrifices in the depths of its bass frequencies.

Why Baldwin?

Baldwin has been “America’s Favorite Piano” ever since company founder D.H. Baldwin vowed to manufacture “the best piano that can be built” over 100 years ago. From concert stages to recording studios to family music rooms, Baldwin Pro Series pianos continue to set the industry standard for innovative design, classic styling and outstanding performance.

A COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE

Baldwin’s commitment to the art of crafting quality vertical pianos has long been recognized by individuals who demand the best. Regardless of the genre, a Baldwin piano speaks the language of music with eloquence and passion. Golden tones ring with definition and authority. Keys respond to the most subtle command. No matter which Baldwin you choose, you’ll own an instrument that is preferred by many of today’s finest pianists, composers, conductors , symphony orchestras and performance venues.

STUNG BACK

Baldwin pianos feature solid construction reinforced backs constructed of the finest materials. This enhances both the structural attributes of the piano and its sound characteristics, helping to produce full, rich tone.

SAND CAST PLATE

Baldwin plates are made using a sandcast process which results in high-strength, stress-free castings. This sandcast process, combined with the use of premium iron ore, produces a plate that does not contribute unwanted resonance, thereby helping to create the classic “Baldwin Sound.”

SOUNDBOARD

To ensure a soundboard of consistently superior quality, Baldwin selects only the finest spruce available. A time-tested, traditional design contributes to the responsive character of the soundboard, providing outstanding tonal quality.

BRIDGES & RIBS

Baldwin Pro Series bridges are constructed of solid maple. This design contributes to the sustaining tonal quality of the Baldwin piano. Ribs, crafted of premium spruce, are hand selected and matched to each soundboard for maximum stability.

BALDWIN STRINGS

Baldwin strings provide consistently rich and detailed fundamental tones and harmonic overtones.

PINBLOCK

The Baldwin Pro Series piano pinblock consists of multiple plies of hardwoods. By alternating the grain direction of each ply, tuning pins are snugly held. Because the plies are joined with a waterproof adhesive, the integrity of the Baldwin grand pinblock is not adversely affected by humidity.

ACTION

Consisting of more than 7,500 parts, the Pro Series action features the exceptionally responsive touch that professional players prefer. Baldwin only uses premium hammers to ensure world-class, note-to-note consistency and excellent tonal range.

KEYS & KEYBED
