The B243’s Full Blow™ Direct Stealth Action delivers an exceptionally responsive touch, and the length of its No. 1 bass string equals that of Baldwin’s smallest grand piano, delivering exceptional grand piano-like tone. The sound is big, rich and resonant, and its unique scale design produces deep and clear bass notes combined with sparkling, well-defined highs. The B243’s design is both contemporary and classic, so that it will work with any decorating scheme.
The B243 is available in either the standard or Euro-style model, and is available in the Satin Ebony and Satin Walnut finishes.
