Baldwin’s new Professional Series has a superb sounding grand piano to suit every budget and every room. The BP165 is a small to mid-sized grand styled to fit where a larger grand might overwhelm the space, while being equipped to deliver world-class tone in the process. At 5'5" in length, the BP165 is easily at home in a room where a full-sized grand just won’t work, but its more compact dimensions never equate to a diminutive 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, handcrafted 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 BP165. 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 weighted for the most responsive action possible. Abel German hammers sound high-quality Roslau strings, and a 17-ply hard maple pin block offers a lifetime of precision performance. The three traditional pedals — soft, sustain and sostenuto — are constructed of solid brass, and the fallboard utilizes a slow-close mechanism 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 naturally becomes the focal point of any room, and if your space doesn’t stretch to a full-sized grand, you'll want to fill it with the finest piano built. The Baldwin BP165 offers unprecedented value in its class. Find it at your nearest authorized Baldwin piano dealer.
