Baldwin Piano Sale Prices

To date, there are thousands upon thousands of different kinds of pianos out there, with some of them dating as far as back as the 18th Century when they were first invented! One of those companies happens to be the Baldwin Piano Company, which was founded all the way back in 1857 and was once the most biggest piano manufacturer, until they were eventually bought out by Gibson Guitar and became a subsidiary. However, Baldwin pianos are still very popular purchases today. In fact, some say that the Baldwin rivals the very popular Steinway pianos.

But, there are a few things to look out for when you’re interested in buying a certain type of piano because of its manufacturer, especially includingbaldwin-piano-sale Baldwin. I see a lot of people say that they would love to have an authentic grand or upright piano from Steinway or Baldwin, but, don’t realize just how expensive such a piano can cost. Fortunately, there are ways to get a great price on a Baldwin without having to take out loans or find a secondary job.

If you search online for Baldwin prices, you can see most Baldwin’s cost well over $2,000, some of them can be as expensive as $40,000 to $120,000! Of course, price depends on a lot of factors. The biggest being: age, wood, piano type, size, and if the actual model of piano is still manufactured. There are tons of models which are still created by Baldwin, while there’s still many that have limited quantities and are no longer made.

What else incorporates into price? And what should you look out for in a Baldwin? Check out this checklist:

  • If you can, always check the date of manufacture for the piano. While the Baldwin company has had a very rich history, there were times when a piano made one decade was better crafted than another in a different decade. For example, a Baldwin piano from the 1970s or 1980s might have some quality problems, whilst a Baldwin that is newer has a higher quality.
  • Baldwin manufactured both concert and home grand and upright pianos, although it is disputed which one is of better quality (most think the home upright pianos). This is also important because of dimensions, not just price.
  • Uprights were first manufactured by Baldwin, then later on grandbaldwin-piano pianos. Thus, the quality between the two are a tad bit different.
  • Pianos under the Baldwin name do have some minor problems that must be checked for, like bad cabinet alignment, broken keys, some squeaking, and possible loose tuning pins. Make sure to ask of any issues before dropping the cash!

Though most pianos have their pros and cons, the Baldwin still remains a great option for people who are both experienced or beginner piano buyers. Refurbished and used Baldwin’s are, of course, going to be cheaper than newer ones or pianos in near mint condition from the 1900s. A piano retailer can help make the purchase easier by properly informing you of the history of the Baldwin and its competitors.

Now, the bigger question: upright or grand piano?

  1. My husband and I have a 1938 Baldwin Baby Grand. It has been in our family since it was purchased in 1938. The internal components were removed and restored in the 1980s and it has been in our home since that time. My husbands grandparents bought the piano for a daughter and it was passed on to us. We would love to sell this beautiful instrument and wondered how we would go about doing this.
