YEAR: 1976 (Certified Rebuilt/Refinished, 2020)*
FINISH: Polished Ebony
Here is a truly unique piano that is sure to enhance any contemporary décor. With the elegance and simplicity reminiscent of Swarovski Crystal, the transparent acrylic piano lid, music desk, and legs on this completely rebuilt and refinished high gloss ebony baby grand artfully creates a stunning “lighter than air” feeling to the solidity of the keyboard and rim of the piano case.
Guests in our showroom always seem to gravitate to this showpiece piano and enjoy watching the unobstructed view of the hammers and other moving parts of the piano action while it is being played.
The beauty of the brand new strings stand out against the contrast of the newly painted black cast iron plate on this Artist Series Baldwin Model R (5’-8”) piano which built in 1971 the USA. The Baldwin Artist Series pianos were the finest instruments Baldwin ever built and the model “R” was the most popular ever made by the company.
This Baldwin R has been fully rebuilt with new Mapes strings, Renner action parts and hammers and as mentioned previously, a beautiful art-case with polished ebony finish and translucent, high tensile strength, acrylic body parts (legs, lid, music desk, and matching bench legs).
The keyboard action is tight, fast and responsive; the tone is clean, clear and well balanced from the bass register all the way through to the treble section. This piano is a real pleasure to play on and the aesthetic beauty of the acrylic is a perfect match that many will appreciate for the simplicity and cleanliness that it imparts on the surrounding décor.
