Mason & Hamlin started building pianos in 1885 and are one of only two companies left still producing pianos in the United States. This piano was made when Mason & Hamlin was still an independent piano company. (They were sold to Aeolian Piano Company in 1932.) This was a stellar period of manufacturing for Mason & Hamlin.
We just rebuilt this piano to exacting standards with the highest quality matching components available. The regulation and voicing have been crafted to achieve an evenness throughout all registers in regards to both touch and tone.
This piano has the trademark fat, rich sound these pianos are famous for. Sitting at this instrument, or listening to it being played, it projects a sound usually heard only on substantially bigger pianos. There are many design elements that come into play to achieve this phenomenon. Aside from the wide tail allowing a bigger soundboard than comparable size pianos, this piano is sometimes described as being “Overbuilt”.
Mason & Hamlin pianos weigh about 50% more than most other pianos!
That is one of the reasons Mason & Hamlin pianos endure the ages better than other pianos. If you appreciate the rich sound of a large grand, but have limited space, this is the perfect piano for you!
