HARD ROCK MAPLE RIMS

All Baldwin Grands feature Hard Rock Maple Rims. Using Hard Rock Maple gives a piano greater volume, enhance harmonics and more dynamic range. With very few exceptions all of the top-rated hand-built pianos use Hard Rock Maple Rims.

STRUNG BACK

Baldwin pianos feature solid construction 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.

SAND CAST PLATE

Baldwin plates are made using a sandcast process which results in high-strength, stress-free castings. This sandcast 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 spruce available. A time-tested, traditional design contributes to the responsive character of the soundboard, providing outstanding tonal quality.

BRIDGES & RIBS

Baldwin bridges are constructed of solid 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.

PINBLOCK

ACTION

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.
