Piano's Personal History:

1926 Baldwin 5 '8 " Grand. Satin Ebony. Serial No. 52964

This is an original owner piano and kept in good condition. It was recently donated to a nonprofit organization and rebuilt by Piano Finders. It is in beautiful condition. It sounds great and has a big full bass, singing midrange and clear bell-like treble.

This piano was built to last. It has more sustain in the tone than a 6'1" Kawai, Boston or Yamaha Grand because of its wet sand cast plate and because the construction of the rim is made from maple and other hardwoods. The Asian made pianos use a vacuum plate casting process and softer woods in their rims that cause the tone to die faster. For those who prefer the richness and warmth of a full and sustained tone, this piano is ideal.

Included in the price is a new duet hardtop bench which will be ordered to match the piano. The artist bench in the photo does not come with the piano. If buyer wants an artist bench, a similar one can be ordered for wholesale cost.
