Our R1 combines traditional grand piano styling and performance to deliver the full, rich, resonant sound expected from a much larger instrument.
A mid-sized grand that delivers rich, resonant sound
Measuring exactly 5’8″, the R1 Artist Grand falls in the middle of Baldwin’s size range for grand pianos. This means it will fit beautifully into almost any home. Superior craftsmanship and materials set this piano apart from Baldwin’s competitors. The R1 features a one-piece, continuously-bent rim design constructed entirely of maple. In addition, the soundboard is made of the finest quartersawn spruce available so that you can enjoy wood with a tighter grain pattern and improved uniformity for exceptional tonal characteristics. The piano’s sharp keys are made from genuine African ebony wood with an added radius for a superior feel, and the Baldwin-engineered Renner hammers deliver world-class note-to-note clarity and consistency, while its superior action provides faster key repetition rates, in addition to an increase in dynamic tonal range. The three pedals are traditional — soft, sustain and sustenuto — and constructed from solid brass, and the fallboard utilizes a pneumatic, slow-close mechanism design.
