Baldwin Pianos - Legacy Pianos at Piano Trends Music

Baldwin Pianos are a musical legacy that for over a century, continues to live on. Each piano that carries the name Baldwin, is a piece of that legacy which has contributed to American piano history and manufacturing.

Company History

The company was founded by Dwight Hamilton Baldwin in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1862. Also known as D.H. Baldwin, the name has always been one of the most widely renowned names in the American piano industry and history.

The company originally began as a retail enterprise, who sold Steinway and Chickering pianos. They began manufacturing their own pianos in 1889, as "D.H. Baldwin & Co." In 1903, shortly after the founder's death, the name became the Baldwin Piano & Organ Co.

Baldwin also manufactured pianos under the names Wurlitzer, Acrosonic, Chickering, Ellington, Franke, Hamilton, Howard, Manualo, Modello, Monarch, and St. Regis.
