Additional Information: 

Baldwin Piano Company, an American piano brand, was founded by Cincinnati piano teacher Dwight Hamilton Baldwin in 1862. The pianos were highly popular through the 19th and early 20th centuries. Baldwin factories were used during World War II to manufacture military aircraft components. After the war, Baldwin integrated manufacturing techniques learned during that period into the design of its newer piano models. 

Despite some financial struggles, Baldwin weathered the changing markets of the 20th and 21st centuries and remains a popular piano brand today. It is the piano of choice for high profile musical artist like Aaron Copeland, Liberace, Dave Brubeck, Marian McPartland, Ben Folds and Miley Cyrus.
