This Baldwin Model R 5'8'' grand piano was built in the United States in 1990. The Model R is extremely well regarded among pianists as a top-grade performance piano, more comparable in tone and musical character to the larger Steinway O or L than the Steinway M.
Players will appreciate the mellowness and warmth of this piano's voice. It provides a nice richness that will work well with European concert music repertory and will be a great piano for a Classical performer. A heavier hand produces a surprising amount of power, especially considering the instrument's size.
This piano's polished ebony lacquer finish is extremely rare among American instruments, which typically feature satin ebony finishes. We've buffed and rejuvenated the cabinet to a high mirror shine that will be marvelous amongst contemporary furnishings. It's a great musical instrument and an impressive furniture piece combined!
