The action is the linkage between the keys and the hammers. And its job is to make sure the hammers strike the strings solidly. Without a dull thud or a loud metallic ping, The result is our consistently brilliant note-to-note tone. 2. The Heart. The heart of a Baldwin is its hammers. And rightly so. Because quality hammers are critical to quality sound. That’s why we make our hammers with meticulous care and attention. From only the finest quality material money can buy. And that’s why you can’t buy a better sound than the Baldwin sound. 3. The Muscle. A Baldwin has the great physical strength required of a great piano. And one area where strength really counts is the pinblock. Our pinblock is specially made with 19 alternating layers of cross-grained wood to hold the tuning pins in the tightest possible grip. So a Baldwin stays in tune longer than other pianos. And you save on tuning costs. 4. The Personality. A Baldwin has 5. The Soul. Our soul is our 6. The Looks. We know looks aren’t personality.

For several years now this type of pin block has been imported into the United States and Canada. Now this particular DELIGNIT@ grade, having the same characteristics of den- sity as used by almost all European piano manufacturers, is available at Schaff. As the above picture of a typical 1%” DELIGNIT@ pin block shows, there are approximately 21 cross laminated plys of high quality beech veneers that are compressed together with a modified hot curing phenolic resin applied in a special dry-bonding process. A full panel pin block measures 48” wide x 59” long with a double block being 19” wide and a single block measuring 9%“. All of the various width blocks come in either I%“, 1%” or 1%” thickness. Single and double blocks can be shipped UPS, but a full panel must ship via truck.
