Mason & Hamlin, model A, 5’ 8” Grand

PIANOMason & Hamlin, model A, 5’ 8” Grand & Bench, serial # 37092

Finish:   Ebony Satin Finish.

Description:  Many musicians prefer the broad singing tone of the Boston built Mason and Hamlin over the Steinway.  This Grand Piano was built in the famous Boston factory in mid 1928 and is the example of Mason & Hamlin’s golden age—one of the last of the great Boston Mason & Hamlins!!  After the factory was moved in late ‘20’s,  Mason & Hamlin lost a great degree of its value due to increasingly poorer quality of execution .  This piano was kept by a older woman piano teacher who lived alone.  She adored the instrument and her 2 cats. When she died,  the contents of her house were disposed of through an estate sale. We opted to accept the condition of the cabinet, acceptable but noticeably used, and the condition of the superstructure (soundboard, pinblock, strings, etc.) and chose to recondition the action and reset tuning pins to insure tuning stability.  The original hammers were resurfaced and voiced and the action was reconditioned and regulated.  This piano is truly a musician’s piano and is larger in tone than any comparable Steinway.  We havechosen not to completely rebuild this piano to offer a truly remarkable value price.

Mason & Hamlin, 41.5" French Provincial Cherry Console

Mason & Hamlin Fr. Prov Console #76975.jpg

PIANO:   Mason & Hamlin, 41.5” Console  & matching bench, serial # 76975

Finish:    French Provincial Cherry with carved legs in lacquer–rubbed to a high gloss.

Description:    Made in East Rochester, NY in  mid-1973,  this exquisite console is a designer piece that is quite unusual and rare.  This features highly figured select cherry cabinet with the hand carved cabriole french front legs and and elaborate case replete with sound escapement behind music rack and decorative moldings throughout.    This piano has a high polish finish that is in remarkably fine condition and was hardly used.   The tone on this piano is huge for its size…..much like the Steinway consoles. Contributing to that tone is the exclusive Mason & Hamlin tension resonator and the full perimeter plate that stabilizes the tension and insures crown in the soundboard. The action has been completely reconditioned, regulated to concert specification and hammers voiced.  A piano of this quality would cost in excess of $20,000 new on sale!  Incredible value no longer available in this day and age!!  This is another gem!
