Baldwin BP1

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 constructing its compact vertical pianos as it does to building its acclaimed full-sized grand pianos for the concert stage. The new BP1 (which replaces the BD118) benefits from all the craftsmanship behind the world’s greatest pianos, as well as the top-quality materials and tonewoods that are standard from Baldwin, at a price that makes it accessible to the school or home budget. The BP1 offers optimum playability, durability and tone, and represents impressive value in a compact upright piano. What’s more, it looks great in your choice of elegant high-polish Ebony or high-polish Rosewood finish.

Although it is more compact than many Baldwin vertical pianos, the BP1 still follows the acclaimed Baldwin Scale Design, a precise “recipe” to determine optimum shape of sounding area, placement of bridges and strike points, to produce optimum tone and balance all across the frequency range. At 120cm tall, the BP1 is able to accommodate a larger soundboard than most compact uprights, and therefore benefits from a full, powerful sound. Its Mapes or Roslau strings boast a longer speaker length for the breed, enabling a deep bass and rich tone, enhanced by the purity and balance of 100% virgin wool hammers. Also, Baldwin uses many of the same premium tonewoods and top-flight 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 19-ply laminated hard maple pinblock. Furthermore, Baldwin’s Full Blow™ Direct Action contributes to a superior feel and response, for an extremely expressive playing experience.

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.

STRUNG BACK

Baldwin pianos feature solid construction, with 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.

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’s BP1 bridge is constructed of two-ply beech and hard 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, made by Mapes or Roslau, provide consistently rich and detailed fundamental tones and harmonic overtones.

PINBLOCK

The BP1 pinblock consists of 19 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

Baldwin’s acclaimed Full Blow™ Direct Action contributes to the superior feel and response that professional players demand. Baldwin only uses premium 100% virgin wool 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.
