Mason & Hamlin Grand and Upright Pianos

Why we love to restore Mason & Hamlin grand and upright pianos

Mason & Hamlin pianos were built like tanks! Actually in some ways they were “overbuilt” They have some of the thickest case rims and heaviest harps. These pianos were built to last centuries.  We love restoring these older Mason & Hamlins back to life because the end result is stunning. The craftsmanship and materials used to build these pianos was incredible. Replacement parts are always available for these instruments making them a great candidate for restoration.

History of Mason & Hamlin

Founded in 1854, Mason & Hamlin is one of America’s oldest and most respected piano manufacturers. Of the hundreds of American piano companies that flourished in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Mason & Hamlin is one of only a handful that survive today. These pianos have a reputation for being exceptionally built, a thunderous bass, and a beautiful mellow tone.

I bought a restored Steinway from Country Piano. The whole experience was pleasant, unhurried, and resulted in my acquisition of a great piano, which will be good for a lifetime. The Country Piano website is user friendly and allowed me to sample hundreds of entries in the privacy of my home. Good quality speakers in my PC helped me listen to the subtleties of sound performance of their dozens of offerings.

My appointment to their showroom lead to a low key conversation with the knowledgeable owner who applied no sales pressure at all. I was free to play any piano I wanted. Price info was in full display so I could make informed choices. I got a fair trade value on my old 5′ 1″ 1965 Baldwin via digital pictures I had brought along. The deal included free moving for both pianos, free first tuning for my new piano, and a five year warranty.

I selected a 1906 Model A Steinway, 6′ 2″. It sounded great at the demo site, and sounded great at my home in Georgia. The 1906 Victorian Steinway arrived intact on the promised date and sounded at home better than at the store. I own a superb fully restored instrument with a real ivory keyboard as good looking as it was in 1906. The harp lettering is so crisp that I bet it looks better than it it did in 1906. This is like a new Steinway, with a new soundboard, bridge caps, action, pinblock, pins, strings, and all new felts. I believe the instrument looks and sounds better than it did in 1906. A keeper in every respect.

I am in love with my Model A, a genuine piece of Americana. I think the Country Piano Steinways are the best value in grand pianos today.
