If you’re a buyer looking for a high-quality piano for the restricted space allowed by many home or school playing environments, rest assured that Baldwin applies the same level of skill and experience to building its compact upright pianos as it does to constructing its acclaimed grand pianos for the concert stage. The BPE1 benefits from all the craftsmanship behind the world’s greatest pianos, as well as top quality materials and tonewoods that are standard from Baldwin. The BPE1 offers optimum playability, durability, and tone, at a price that represents impressive value in an upright piano. What’s more, it looks great in high-polished ebony with brass (standard) or silver hardware.
Like all Baldwin Upright Pianos, the BPE1 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 120 cm (47”) tall, the BPE1 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 BPE1 is the best in its class. Find it at your nearest authorized Baldwin piano dealer.
