Baldwin Professional Series Grand Pianos - World Class Materials
Solid Alaskan Sitka Spruce Soundboard & Ribs
Only the highest quality solid spruce soundboard material is used to ensure superior resonance and sustain. Alaskan Sitka Spruce is the gold-standard of piano soundboard and rib material, providing excellent tonal quality, with unsurpassed dynamic possibility and musical expression.
Inner & Outer Piano Rims
Constructed of the finest hard maple, Baldwin grand pianos feature a continuously bent rim design. This helps every Baldwin grand piano produce a full, rich tone and provides essential structural stability for the instrument.
Iron Sand Cast Piano Plate with Duplex Scale
Baldwin plates are made with a sand cast process which results in high-strength, stress-free castings. Sand casting combined with the use of premium iron ore, produces a plate that does not add any “unwanted” resonance or overtones. This is a superior design specification over Yamaha and Kawai pianos.
Hammers by Abel from Germany
Abel Piano hammer heads constructed using the finest hammer wool felt in the world. These legendary hammers provide the widest possible dynamic and tonal range and dynamic latitude. For over 100 years, Abel hammers have placed musical expression at the fingertips of the world’s greatest pianists.
Premium Roslau Piano Strings
Only high-grade Roslau music wire from Germany is used in Baldwin pianos. Roslau is the standard of the industry and the only string used by the world’s leading piano manufacturers.
Multi-Laminated Hard Rock Maple Pinblock
To provide the greatest level of tuning stability, Baldwin pianos are constructed using a multi-laminated pin block. By alternating the direction of the wood grain of each ply, the nickel-plated steel tuning pins are held securely, provide outstanding tuning stability and durability.
Hard Maple Bridges
Hand-notched hard maple bridges are the ideal wood to use for transference of tone and enduring quality.
Maple and Hornbeam Action Parts
Select woods are used for Baldwin Piano action parts. Hard Rock Maple and Hornbeam are dense and durable, allowing for exacting specifications and superior durability.
Solid Alaskan Sitka Spruce & Natural Ebony Keys
The natural characteristics of Sitka spruce keys ensure outstanding durability and consistency of feel. Baldwin’s natural ebony wood “sharp” and “flat” keys feel refined and vastly superior in feel and refinement of touch over the plastic black keys found in most pianos today.
Multi-laminated Birch and Spruce Keybeds
Baldwin keybeds are designed for long-term dimensional stability, constructed of cross-grained hardwoods.

Baldwin - The Best Selling Studio Pianos of All Time
Many of us remember the Baldwin or Baldwin Hamilton Studio Pianos that were in our public-school classrooms when we were children. What you may not know, is that since 1939, the Baldwin B243 Hamilton Studio has become the #1 selling piano of all time. It’s no mistake. The quality of sound, unmatched tuning stability and consistent performance, year after year, have made these pianos the choice of 500,000 classrooms and teaching studios in more schools and institutional settings than any other piano in history.
So, what makes the Baldwin Studio pianos so special? Why are they considered the best upright piano available for the past 80 years? It’s the way they are designed and manufactured. The process of making Baldwin pianos by hand... one by one, is how they are still made today. Baldwin uses the same artisan quality and premium components throughout their impressive top-of-the-line professional pianos. The specifications include 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 consistently provides superior feel and response, for an expressive and dynamic playing experience.
Baldwin pianos are still built by master artisans, allowing for more attention to detail and hand-crafted adjustments throughout the manufacturing process. This is rare in the piano manufacturing world today and can only be said of several other hand-crafted pianos like Charles Walter, Steinway and Mason & Hamlin. All Baldwin piano designs use sand cast iron plates that are cured for months prior to entering the assembly process. Sand casting is more time consuming and expensive compared to the injection molding process used by Yamaha and Kawai piano. While Japanese and Korean piano makers are using injection molding or a “V-Pro plate” process to manufacture their piano plates, the sand-cast method used by Baldwin and other hand-crafted American pianos yields a better result. It’s no mistake that church bells are cast in the same manner to yield the best quality of resonance and sustain, and to allow greater control over unpleasant harmonics that vacuum injection-molded plates produce.
Baldwin Professional Series pianos continue to set the industry standard for innovative design, classic styling and outstanding performance at an unbeatable price. All new Baldwin Pianos have a 10-Year Parts & Labor Warranty and are built to withstand even the most rugged use for a lifetime of music and service.
