Classic design, handcrafted features to last you a lifetime
Baldwin’s new Professional Series has a piano for all budgets and every requirement, and the BP148 makes a great case in point. If you always wanted a genuine grand piano of unparalleled Baldwin quality but thought you didn’t quite have the space to accommodate one, the new BP148 just might be the answer to your dreams. At exactly 4’10”, the BP148 is one of the smallest grand pianos in its class, but its compact dimensions never equate to a downsized sound. This diminutive grand easily delivers the full, rich tone you’d expect from a full-sized instrument and retains the impressive presence and prestige of having a legendary Baldwin grand piano in your living space.
To ensure integrity, each part of this grand is carefully chosen for its uniformity and performance. The handmade rim uses hard-rock maple, the soundboard and rib material are made from solid Alaskan Sitka spruce, while the bridge is made from hard maple, which is precision notched by hand. Each key is crafted of solid Alaskan Sitka spruce with genuine ebony wood sharp keys, each individually weighted for the most responsive action possible. Abel German hammers sound high-quality Roslau strings, and the 17-ply hard maple pin block offers a lifetime of precision performance and tuning stability. The three traditional pedals — soft, sustain and sostenuto — are constructed of solid brass, and the fallboard utilizes a slow-close mechanism for a smooth, sure motion when in use. This makes it easier and safer for younger players.
