This Mason & Hamlin was built in Boston during the “Golden Era” of American piano making. Freshly rebuilt and refinished, it has an easy touch and produces the legendary sound that made these pianos a popular alternative to Steinway.
The original soundboard, now shimmed using aged Sitka spruce, has 3mm of crown. It has a new Bolduc pin-block; new strings and tuning pins; and new dampers. The original action parts were re-pinned and re-hammered using Ronsen Weichert felt. Musically, it has an easy touch and a warm, rounded tone which was a characteristic of the old Mason & Hamlin.
The case has the elegant moldings and details that have been lost in modern piano making. It was stripped and refinished using a commercial lacquer; hand rubbed and polished to a simi-gloss sheen that is hard and durable. This piano is quite beautiful and will stand up to use. It comes with the original bench, too!
