Baldwin B442

The Baldwin B442 is a decorator-style console model that has consistently remained one of the company’s most popular models ever since its introduction in 1936. The scale design of Baldwin’s lifestyle consoles is based on more than 100 years of quality piano construction methods, offering classic styling and excellent performance while fitting perfectly into any décor. The B442 also delivers all the high-quality features and superior tone expected from a Baldwin piano. Its unique design features a soundboard and rib material made from spruce, and a precision notched bridge made from hard rock maple.

The most responsive touch 
The carefully designed geometry of the B442’s Full Blow™ Direct Stealth Action delivers an exceptionally responsive touch. The keys are also made from solid spruce and are individually weighted. All of the corners of the keys are rounded and polished for an elegant, sophisticated look. The keys are also covered with a special coating that resists stains and chipping. The multi-ply pinblock is a variation of the one from Baldwin’s legendary concert grand pianos, and is constructed from premium hard rock maple and delivers unmatched tuning stability. Whether you’re a student, teacher or professional, the highly responsive action and note-for-note clarity of the B442 makes it a natural – and desirable – choice for players of all levels.

The B442 is available in Satin Mahogany finish.

Description

Product Features

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 Pro Series pianos continue to set the industry standard for innovative design, classic styling and outstanding performance.
 
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 most subtle command. No matter which Baldwin you choose, you’ll own an instrument that is preferred by many of today’s finest pianists, composers, conductors , symphony orchestras and performance venues.
 
STUNG 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 Pro Series 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.
 
BALDWIN STRINGS

Baldwin strings provide consistently rich and detailed fundamental tones and harmonic overtones.
 
PINBLOCK

The Baldwin Pro Series piano pinblock consists of multiple plies of hardwoods. By alternating the grain direction of each ply, tuning pins are snugly held. Because the plies are joined with a waterproof adhesive, the integrity of the Baldwin grand pinblock is not adversely affected by humidity.
 
ACTION

Consisting of more than 7,500 parts, the Pro Series 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.
