Mason & Hamlin Model B

The Model B was designed for those who want the big Mason & Hamlin sound in a small package.

At 5’4″, the Mason & Hamlin Model B qualifies as a “Baby Grand”, but the sound and presence of this magnificent instrument are anything but small. One listen to its brilliant treble and deep, rich bass notes will tell you that the B has all the legendary Mason & Hamlin characteristics in a size that just happens to fit anywhere.

Description

Since 1881 and in the new era of modern piano manufacturing, Mason & Hamlin has maintained and preserved original company designs many of which are exclusive to Mason & Hamlin pianos, including the Mason & Hamlin Model B, and has faithfully preserved them using sophisticated computer software programs to archive original Mason & Hamlin company scale designs, jigs, fixtures and templates.

As evidence of Mason & Hamlin’s unparalleled commitment to quality and a limited production fewer than 300 pianos are built-by-hand each year. Each piano is truly rare, a one-of-a-kind original.

Acclaimed and collected by generations of serious piano aficionados, Mason & Hamlin is the ultimate piano investment.

Franz Liszt

“What a magnificent instrument! It is worthy of all praise and admiration!”
(Letter from Franz to Mason & Hamlin, Weimar, June 12, 1883) Franz Liszt Museum, Budapest

Maurice Ravel

“The Mason & Hamlin pianoforte serves magnificently the composer’s concept by its extensive range in dynamics, as well as quality of tone, not short of being a small orchestra, in my opinion the Mason & Hamlin is a real work of art.”

Sergei Rachmaninoff

“I desired to play Mason & Hamlin pianos because I believe they would be the most satisfactory to me in my work. In my opinion, these instruments must satisfy all musicians and artists of first rank, as well as music lovers in general. I feel that if I have succeeded in making even the slightest impression upon the public by my playing, a great part of my success is due to your instruments.”

Arthur Rubinstein

“One of the Most Beautiful Pianos I have ever had a chance to play.” (Autobiography, 1921)
