This is a well-maintained, professionally serviced grand piano in excellent condition. Recently tuned, it exemplifies the wonderful sound for which M&H pianos are known.
From a 2013 review:
"The tonal similarities between Mason & Hamlin and Steinway pianos are no accident. In some ways. It is little wonder that Mason & Hamlin have a reputation for being “the poor man’s Steinway” and some even believe them to be more durable. The pianos are handcrafted in Haverhill, Massachusetts to the highest standards in the industry with materials and parts that we find to be equal or superior to the materials and parts found in much higher-priced pianos."
"The Model A piano that is made by Mason & Hamlin is the grand piano for people with limited space. It is a baby grand with the dimensions needed to fit into anyone’s home with ease. Made with the professional in mind, the Model A Piano is perfect for any purpose – whether it is instruction or personal use."
We are the second owners, acquiring the piano from a dealer in 2006. It has a Dampp-Chaser Piano Life Saver System which is an internal humidity control system that maintains consistent humidity and extends the life of the instrument.
