5'10" - The Perfect Parlour Grand
With a range that caters to every requirement, Baldwin's Professional Series has a high quality grand piano for precisely your budget, your room, and your musical needs. The BP178 is a mid-sized grand piano that is perfect where a full, rich tone is desired, but a larger, full sized grand might cramp your room. At 5'10" in length, the BP178 projects the full grandeur of a full sized piano while being right at home in your living room, music room, or studio. 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 BP178. 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 is limited, you'll want to fill it with the finest piano built. The Baldwin BP178 is the best in its class.
Baldwin grand pianos feature a two-piece, continuously bent rim design, constructed of the finest hard maple. This enhances both the structural attributes of the piano and its sound characteristics, helping to produce full, rich tone.
Baldwin plates are made using a sand cast process which results in high-strength, stress-free castings. This sand cast process, combined with the use of premium iron ore, produces a plate that does not contribute unwanted resonance, thereby helping to create the classic "Baldwin Sound."
To ensure a soundboard of consistently superior quality, Baldwin selects only the finest solid Alaskan Sitka spruce available. A time-tested, traditional design contributes to the responsive character of the soundboard, providing outstanding tonal quality.
Baldwin's BP178 bridge is constructed of hand-notched hard maple. This design contributes to the sustaining tonal quality of the Baldwin piano. Ribs, crafted of premium solid Alaskan Sitka spruce, are hand selected and matched to each soundboard for maximum stability.
Baldwin strings, made by Roslau, provide consistently rich and detailed fundamental tones and harmonic overtones.
The BP178 pinblock consists of 17 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.
Consisting of more than 7,500 parts, the Grand action features the exceptionally responsive touch that professional players prefer. Baldwin only uses premium 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.
