BALDWIN B124-HPE/HPR VERTICAL PIANO
|Baldwin has been “America’s Favorite Piano” ever since company founder D.H. Baldwin vowed to manufacture “the best piano that can be built” more than 100 years ago. From concert stages to recording studios to family music rooms, Baldwin 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 subtlest command. No matter which Baldwin you choose, you’ll own an instrument that is preferred by many of today’s finest pianists, composers, conductors, studios, symphony orchestras and performance venues.
|Baldwin pianos feature solid construction, with 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.
|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’s BJ124 bridge is constructed of two-ply beech and hard 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, made by Mapes or Roslau, provide consistently rich and detailed fundamental tones and harmonic overtones.
|The BJ124 pinblock consists of 19 plies of hard maple, one of the most durable hardwoods. By alternating the grain direction of each ply, tuning pins are snugly held. The plies are joined with a waterproof adhesive, so the integrity of the Baldwin pinblock is not adversely affected by humidity.
|Baldwin’s acclaimed Full Blow™ Direct Action contributes to the superior feel and response that professional players demand. Baldwin only uses premium 100% virgin wool hammers to ensure world-class, note-to-note consistency and excellent tonal range.
|KEYS & KEYBED
|Baldwin keybeds are constructed of cross-grained hardwoods. This design ensures long-term dimensional stability. Baldwin keys feature all-hardwood reinforcement parts. Sharp keys have a refined radius for superb feel.
