Baldwin R1

5'8" Artist Series Grand Piano

At 5'8" in length, the American Baldwin R1 Artist Series Grand Piano is an icon in sophisticated living rooms all over the United States. Made in America with only the very finest materials available, the model R1 Baldwin grand piano features a one-piece, continuously-bent maple rim for superior projection and unbelievable tonal character. The piano's bass side projects out at a "greater than 90 degree" angle - giving the piano's quartersawn spruce soundboard even greater speaking area. This extra space in the piano's bass section gives the R1 exceptional warmth and character - even in the lowest register. The strings meet the piano's bridge at a carefully calculated location - further enhancing the piano's voice and tonal stability. The R1 also features Baldwin's famous multi-directional pinblock - made from several layers of hard rock maple and crossgrained for unparalleled stability and longevity. Black keys are made from genuine African ebony wood with an added radius for a more controlled feel, and the Baldwin-engineered Renner hammers deliver world-class note-to-note clarity and consistency, while its world-famous key action provides faster repetition rates, in addition to increased dynamic range. Baldwin's pneumatic "slow-close" fallboard, solid brass hardware and reinforced "brass ferule" legs round out this piano's rugged design - adding further refinement to the classic American Baldwin legacy. It is no wonder that these pianos are found in the finest homes all around the World.

Chosen by such world-famous artists as Aaron Copland, Philip Glass, Igor Stravinsky, Béla Bartók, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein, John Williams, Ray Charles, Liberace, Richard Carpenter, Michael Feinstein, Billy Joel, Dave Brubeck, Miley Cyrus and Evanescence, Artist Series American Baldwin pianos are some of the finest pianos available in the world today - at any price.
