The design philosophy of Mason & Hamlin is to combine the most successful traditions of the hand built pianos of the golden age with a renewed focus on the evolution of the instrument – striving to improve on it with modern materials and precision engineering.
From the traditions of the original Mason & Hamlin piano, each instrument features the pioneering ‘Crown Retention System’. Still a patented unique feature, this heavy steel brace under the piano brings enormous stability to the frame and ensures the crown in the soundboard is supported, extending its life and the richness of the sustain and resonance of the piano’s voice box. The widest rim of any piano in the world is created from a minimum of sixteen layers of maple, providing the ability for the unparalleled tonal depth and power. All timbers are quarter sawn, to take advantage of the extra strength and consistency this brings. These traditions combine with state-of-the-art CNC robots that cut each piece with absolute accuracy, ensuring no unnecessary stress on the frame.
It is the groundbreaking Wessel Nickel and Gross action that is the heart of the Mason evolution though. The original Mason & Hamlin featured WNG actions and today’s pianos utilise a world-first action made entirely of composite materials, namely: carbon fibre, nylon and glass. These composite actions are faster, lighter and infinitely more consistent and durable than wood, and not in any way impacted by humidity or weather. This ensures a consistency in response that cannot be achieved on any other piano. It also provides an extraordinary palette for articulation and dynamics.
All Mason & Hamlin pianos feature the very finest materials available and infact have been shown to be the costliest pianos to produce in the world. Each instrument under goes strenuous quality inspections before departing the factory and our dealers work to the strictest of standards in set-up and presentation before a piano is unveiled on their floor.
Your instrument comes with a five year factory warranty, with a limited lifetime warranty on the soundboard.
Each Mason & Hamlin is a handcrafted masterpiece and can be finished in a variety of rare timber veneers. Talk to our consultants about designing your dream piano.
