  • by Sarah Griffin
    The dynamic range of this piano is second to none. I used to have a Steinway and I must tell you that the sound of the SD-10 Concert Grand is much more beautiful.

    I own the SD-10 Concert Grand for several years and only after I brought the best Baldwin professional technician to tune my piano (after 4 years!!) did I start to enjoy its beautiful and rich sound.
    My advice: If you have this remarkable piano, call a real professional for Baldwin pianos to tune and take care of your piano.
