This Baldwin M1 is one of the last American built Artist Series pianos built by Baldwin. This fully hand-crafted instrument was created in their Trumann, Arkansas factory, which currently only produces custom pieces and repairs of Artist Series pianos. Many of the impressive features include:
◦ Rim made of one-piece, continuously bent hard rock maple
◦ Quartersawn solid Sitka spruce soundboard
◦ Wet sand cast iron plate
◦ Hard rock maple pinblock - for enhanced durability, stability, and precision tuning
◦ Genuine African Ebony wood sharp keys
◦ Baldwin engineered Renner action
◦ Hammers by Abel of Germany
◦ Duplex scaling
◦ Baldwin’s custom key weighting, giving greater control, feel, and repetition capability
◦ Baldwin custom Accu-just hitch pins
◦ Three pedals and casters crafted from solid brass
◦ Pneumatic “slow close” fall board
◦ Artist Series adjustable bench included
The unparalleled craftsmanship gives this piano a feel, volume, and playability that is generally found only in far larger, and far more expensive, pianos. The Artist Grands were rightly touted by Larry Fine’s Piano Book as concert level instruments - allowing precision playing with a depth of sound and a singing quality across all registers - singing highs and growling lows. It truly is a delight to play and hear. Many consider this one of the finest small grands ever built. The closest comparison would be the Steinway model S which supports a price tag of nearly twice the M1.
This piano has only had one owner and has been regularly maintained, by a licensed piano technician (paperwork available if necessary) in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. As such, it is in excellent playing and aesthetic condition. Please don’t wait on this American classic that, quite literally, you cannot find produced anymore. This is a true American icon.
