Quality, efficiency, and perfect performance meet head-on in this distinct studio upright. Rarely do you see such a combination of playability and durability, designed to meet the demanding needs of today’s versatile pianists. First introduced in 1939, the Baldwin 243 Hamilton models are the company’s best-selling of all-time, with nearly 500,000 units sold worldwide. The multi-ply pinblock is a variation of the one from Baldwin’s legendary grand pianos, and is constructed from premium hard rock maple to deliver unmatched tuning stability.
The Baldwin B243 is not only a fine instrument, it is built to stand up to the rugged demands of a school, studio, or any institutional setting. It comes with locks to secure the top lid and key cover, and includes double rubber casters to make moving more practical. At 47" tall, the B243 is able to accommodate a larger soundboard than most studio pianos, and therefore benefits from a full, powerful sound. Its longer strings are enhanced by the purity and balance of 100% virgin wool hammers. Also, Baldwin uses many of the same premium tonewoods and components that are employed in its top-of-the-line professional pianos, including a spruce soundboard, solid two-ply beech and hard maple bridge, spruce ribs and back frame, and a 19 ply hard maple pinblock. Baldwin’s Full Blow Direct Action contributes to a superior feel and response, for an extremely expressive playing experience.
A piano naturally becomes the focal point of any room, and if your space is limited, you'll want to fill it with the finest piano built. The Baldwin B243 is the best in its class. Find it at your nearest authorized Baldwin piano dealer.
