Baldwin BH122 HPE 48'' Studio Upright in Polished Ebony
- Brand: Baldwin
Baldwin applies the same level of skill and experience to constructing a compact vertical piano for home, school or studio use as it does to building its acclaimed full-sized grand pianos for the concert stage.
At 122cm tall, the BH122 is able to accommodate a larger soundboard than most compact vertical pianos, 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. Like the most expensive professional Baldwin pianos, the BH122 follows the 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. Tone and performance further benefit 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. Baldwin’s acclaimed Full Blow™ Direct Action contributes to a superior feel and response, for an extremely expressive playing experience. Check out the BH122 today at your authorized Baldwin dealer to discover a great value in a high-quality vertical piano.
Baldwin has been “America’s Favorite Piano” ever since company founder D.H. Baldwin vowed to manufacture “the best piano that can be built” more than 100 years ago. From concert stages to recording studios to family music rooms, Baldwin Pro Series pianos continue to set the industry standard for innovative design, classic styling and outstanding performance.
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.
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.
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.
Baldwin’s BH122 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, made by Mapes or Roslau, provide consistently rich and detailed fundamental tones and harmonic overtones.
The BH122 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.
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.
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.
