A Beautiful Mid-Sized Grand


The Baldwin B161 Grand Piano

Baldwin's new Academy Series has a piano for all budgets and every requirement, and the B161 makes a great case in point. The B161 is a small to mid-sized grand styled to fit where a larger grand might overwhelm the room. At 5’4” in length, the B161 is easily at home in a space where a full sized grand just won’t work, yet it is still built with the highest quality materials and workmanship. This, plus the prestige of having a legendary Baldwin grand piano in your home.

Features to last you a lifetime

Baldwin Academy Series Grand Pianos are built to last a lifetime. The plate is pure iron ore made in the traditional method of slow wet-sand casting. The strings are from Roslau in Germany, and the pinblock is laminated hard rock maple. The B161 grand features a hardwood rim of Beech and Abel hammers from Germany.
