Pianos bearing this well known and honorable name are the product of The Baldwin Piano Company and in the best sense of the word, instruments of the highest degree of excellence. The system or chain of scientific improvements of the Baldwin piano based on the law of acoustics, and known as the Baldwin acoustic system, which permitted the greatest conservation of tone, secures an artistic result of the highest quality, and has resulted in gaining for the company a leading position among the world's artistic musical instruments. Baldwin is now owned by the Gibson Guitar Company.
Historically: The Baldwin piano has an individuality of the highest character. When it was exhibited at the International Exposition at Paris in 1900 it was honored with an award (The Grand Prix) which had never been bestowed on any other American piano and the highest honor ever received by any piano made in America. At the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, St. Louis, Mo., 1904, the Baldwin piano was again awarded the Grand Prize and still another Grand Prize was awarded the Baldwin pianos and Manualos at the Anglo-American Exposition, London, 1914. The "New York Tribune" in commenting on the comprehensive display of the Baldwin Company at Paris, and the success of this piano and this house, said that they achieved a record that would never be forgotten in the history of uprights, grands and reproducing pianos, the grands including various sizes from concert grands to small grands for parlors. In Rome, 1923, the Baldwin piano was awarded the Papal Medal and the House of Baldwin was appointed "Purveyors to the Holy See." The Baldwin piano is recognized as a universal favorite among leading operatic artists and virtuosos of the pianoforte. The Baldwin Manualo is a unification of the most artistic piano with the most scientific players' construction; in other words, it combines the highest artistic attainment in piano production with the most gratifying ability of performance.
