Mason & Hamlin is one of the great piano builders that started it all in the American Northeast. Along with Steinway, Chickering, Knabe, Sohmer, and others, they innovated, collaborated, and refined the instrument into what we know as the modern piano.
Considered to be performance-level caliber, Mason & Hamlin pianos were often selected by top-tier music schools, teachers, churches, and advanced pianists.
Their grand pianos are famous for being overbuilt, with extra thick, wide-bodied rims, full-perimeter (heavy!) cast iron plates, and the patented metal tension-resonator Crown Retention System (often referred to as the “Spider”). The CRS is a series of spoke-like turnbuckles under the piano pulling inwards from all sides, keeping the rim from ever spreading, thus retaining the necessary tonal “crown” of the soundboard.
This Model A was maintained in very-good condition and is suitable for a serious pianist at any level, especially at this price.
