There is nothing as elegant or beautiful as the sight and sound of a grand piano. The notes float upon the air reaching everyone’s ears. Looking upon a grand piano makes you realize how beautiful the music is going to be that comes from the keys. Unfortunately many people are unable to make the room for a grand piano. They just don’t have the space required to fit a grand piano into the room they want.
The Mason & Hamlin Model A piano came from a design by Richard Gertz, one of the 19th and 20th Century’s premiere piano designers. Gertz was trained by some of the great piano engineers at the Bösendorfer and Blüthner factories where he worked on the design and build of the modern Steinway pianos. He then moved on to design and build his own creation: the Mason & Hamlin piano.
The tonal similarities between Mason & Hamlin and Steinway pianos are no accident. In some ways, Gertz took an world-class school of thought and advanced it with his new creation at Mason & Hamlin. 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. Due to new innovations in piano design and construction, the tone of this piano is very close to the depth that you find on larger grand pianos. Nothing is lost because of the size. It is perfect for homes, conservatories and musical institutions.
It is due to the innovations of today that such rich sound can come from a small piano. With dimensions of 5ft 8 ½ in in length and a width of 56.12 inches, this piano is of small stature no doubt but it is made of a hard rock maple – so it will last for generations. The grace and beauty of the piano are just the beginning.
You can get the finish to match any décor you have in your home. Whether mahogany, walnut or Brazilian rosewood is your favorite, it is available. There are also such finishes as ebony in both satin and high polish.
