I just wanted to thank all of you for your wonderful help in my decision to purchase a piano and I am so glad that you advised me with the grand purchase. So, here it is, my 1994 Model R Baldwin Grand Piano. It is horribly out of tune, but that will be taken care of on the 17th. It still sounds fairly awesome! I still screwed up the photo--perhaps someone can put it on here for me. [img:center]http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/Karen_PiehMahoney/media/20140203_185126.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0[/img]

Congratulations!

Do you have a photo which is larger? I tried to enlarge your photo but it just gets blurry.

The dog likes it warm! Inside with a coat and an open fire - how does it cope outside? wink

Congratulations on your new baby!

Love your dog and his/her coat! Nice house too, lovely space for a lovely piano. Hope they'll tune it perfectly for your delight.

Thanks everyone! I am not sure why the picture is too small to enlarge here, but I will take some new ones today. I had a difficult time sleeping last night as I was so excited about it!

I have a Baldwin model R from 1994. I also have an R from 1967. I have spent much time in regulation, tone building. I hope you got it with all that completed. Mine was tinny sounding when I first got it this past fall, but with work it is turning out to be a real classic. The bearing of the strings was off, but using a bearing gauge it is the only make that is entirely adjustable thanks to the accu-just hitch pins. We are Baldwin lovers. My wife was raised with a 1967 model L 6 ft 3 in.

Best wishes
