The Baldwin B442 Acrosonic is a decorator-style console piano that has consistently remained one of the company’s most popular models since its introduction in 1936. The scale design of Baldwin’s Acrosonic Consoles is based on more than 100 years of quality piano construction methods, offering classic styling and excellent performance that will perfectly fit your décor. The B442’s design features a soundboard and ribs made from spruce, and a precision notched bridge made from hard rock maple. It also features Baldwin’s Full Blow Direct Action, giving it a superior touch to other pianos this size.
Like all Baldwin Upright Pianos, the B442 still follows the acclaimed Baldwin Scale Design, a precise “recipe” to determine optimum shape of sounding area, string length, and placement of bridges and strike points to produce the best tone and balance all across the frequency range. At 43 ½" tall, the B442 is able to accommodate a larger soundboard than most compact uprights, 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 B442 is the best in its class. Find it at your nearest authorized Baldwin piano dealer.
