Description

Baldwin always applies the same level of skill and experience to constructing a compact vertical piano as it does to building its acclaimed full-sized grand pianos for the concert stage. Now, the new BP3 displays that ethos loud and clear in several stylish design elements. The BP3 benefits from the depth of experience and craftsmanship behind the world’s greatest pianos, as well as from the top-quality materials and tonewoods that are standard from Baldwin, at a price that makes it available to the home, school or smaller studio budget. Offering optimum playability, durability and tone, the BP3 also captures the timeless elegance of the grand with its French-style leg, highly crafted cabinetry, and grand-based lid prop, all enhanced by your choice of gorgeous, high-polish Ebony or Rosewood finish. 

In addition to its elegant looks, the BP3 benefits from the dimensions and design required to produce outstanding tone. With its 124cm height, this relatively compact vertical piano accommodates a larger soundboard than most of its breed, for a full, powerful sound. As a result, the strings (by Mapes or Roslau) boast a longer speaker length, enabling a deep bass and rich tone, enhanced by the purity and balance of 100% virgin wool hammers. Baldwin Scale Design—the precise “recipe” to determine optimum shape of sounding area, bridge placement, and strike points—produces maximum tone and balance across the frequency range from the BP3 just as it does from Baldwin’s larger professional pianos. Sound and performance benefit further from the use of premium tonewoods throughout, including a spruce soundboard, solid two-ply beech and maple bridge, spruce ribs and back frame, and 19-ply laminated hard maple pinblock.

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 BP3 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 BP3 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.
