Baldwin BP178

With a range that caters to every requirements, Baldwin’s Professional Series has a high-quality grand piano for precisely your budget, your room and your musical needs. The BP178 is toward the mid-sized range of grand pianos, making it perfect where a full, rich tone is desired, but a larger, full sized grand might cramp your room. At 5’10” in length, the BP178 projects the full grandure of a full-sized piano, while being right at home in your more restricted livingroom, music room or studio. And, being a Baldwin Professional Series, its slightly scaled-down dimensions never equate to a constricted sound. This grand easily delivers the sweet, singing tone you’d expect from a much larger instrument, while retaining the full visual impact of having a legendary Baldwin grand piano in your living space.

Classic design, hand-crafted features to last you a lifetime
Any time you buy a Baldwin grand piano you expect a beautiful and classic cabinet design, along with warm tone and exceptionally responsive action. These features are in abundance in the new BP178. To ensure integrity, each part of this grand is carefully chosen for its uniformity and performance. The soundboard and rib material are made from solid Alaskan Sitka spruce, while the bridge is made from hard maple and precision notched by hand. Each key is crafted of solid Alaskan Sitka spruce with ebony wood sharp keys, and individually weighed for the most responsive action possible. T-pinned and reinforced Abel German hammers sound high-quality Roslau strings, and a 17-ply hard maple German pin block offers a lifetime of precision performance. The three traditional pedals — soft, sustain and full sustenuto — are constructed of solid brass, and the fallboard utilizes a slow-close mechanism with imported hydraulics for a smooth, sure motion when in use. This makes it easier and safer for younger players.

The best fit and finish for you 
A grand piano enhances and defines any room, and if your space doesn’t stretch to a full-sized grand, this genuine Baldwin makes the desired impact in the space allowed. In so doing, the Baldwin BP178 offers unprecedented value in its class.

A COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE

Baldwin’s commitment to the art of crafting quality grand 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 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 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 BP178 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 BP178 pinblock 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.
