Built in the USA in 1975, this piano has been in Albuquerque all of its life so it is happily acclimated and well-adjusted to our unique climate. It was purchased at the longtime Baldwin dealer, King Music located right up the street from here. It is in excellent structural and aesthetic condition. There is minimal wear throughout the moving parts of the action and trapwork. Other than tuning, very little had to be done for this piano in our restoration shop. We will be happy to warrant it for two years. It ought to provide decades of musical enjoyment and expression. The Baldwin tone is characterized by a strong robust bass, long sustaining rich tenor and a bell-like treble. The touch is accurate and responsive. Complimentary local first-floor professional delivery is included.

The Baldwin Piano & Organ company was established in 1862 by Dwight Hamilton Baldwin, a Presbyterian minister and music teacher in Cincinnati, Ohio. They are by far the most popular and largest-selling piano in American history and their slogan was “America’s Favorite Piano”. Among the general public, Baldwin has been one of the most beloved and well-respected pianos in the industry and many are passed down through generations of families. They are frequently used by music teachers, colleges and universities, places of worship and any institutional situation in part because they are affordable and offer a great value but they are also built like Sherman tanks to last. Their Artist endorsement program boasted a large roster of musicians, conductors and composers including Liberace, John Williams (Star Wars soundtrack), Dave Brubeck, Earl Wild and dozens more. Today, Baldwin is a division of Gibson Guitars, and they are built in China.
Excellent condition – structurally and aesthetically.
