BALDWIN BP190 GRAND 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” over 100 years ago. From concert stages to recording studios to family music rooms, Baldwin Professional Series pianos continue to set the industry standard for innovative design, classic styling and outstanding performance at an unbeatable price.
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.
INNER & OUTER RIMS
Baldwin grand pianos feature a two-piece, continuously bent rim design, constructed of the finest hard maple. This enhances both the structural attributes of the piano and its sound characteristics, helping to produce full, rich tone.
SAND CAST PLATE
Baldwin plates are made using a sand cast process which results in high-strength, stress-free castings. This sand cast process, combined with the use of premium iron ore, produces a plate that does not contribute unwanted resonance, thereby helping to create the classic “Baldwin Sound.”
SOUNDBOARD
To ensure a soundboard of consistently superior quality, Baldwin selects only the finest solid Alaskan Sitka spruce available. A time-tested, traditional design contributes to the responsive character of the soundboard, providing outstanding tonal quality.
BRIDGES & RIBS
Baldwin’s BP190 bridge is constructed of hand-notched hard maple. This design contributes to the sustaining tonal quality of the Baldwin piano. Ribs, crafted of premium solid Alaskan Sitka spruce, are hand selected and matched to each soundboard for maximum stability.
BALDWIN STRINGS
Baldwin strings, made by Roslau, provide consistently rich and detailed fundamental tones and harmonic overtones.
PINBLOCK
The BP190 pinblock is made in Germany and consists of 17 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.
ACTION
Consisting of more than 7,500 parts, the Grand action features the exceptionally responsive touch that professional players prefer. Baldwin only uses premium 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.
