About Mason & Hamlin Piano

modelCC94-mason-hamlin
In 1854, two brilliant idealists, Henry Mason and Emmons Hamlin, founded the Mason & Hamlin Company in Boston, Massachusetts, the birthplace of American piano design and manufacturing. Although their backgrounds and interests were very different, the two men shared a common goal: to make the world’s finest musical instruments.

 

With Mason & Hamlin’s innovations, use of only the finest materials and expert craftsmanship, its pianos were the world’s costliest to produce and widely accepted as the world’s finest.

 

More About MASON & HAMLIN Piano

Attention to detail takes time, and Mason & Hamlin invests a great deal of it in every piano it makes. Before a Mason & Hamlin leaves the factory, it’s inspected no fewer than 12 times. Choosing quality over quantity, Mason & Hamlin limits its annual production to 50 uprights and 300 grand pianos.

The Ultimate Concert Instrument

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.

Mason & Hamlin is headquartered in Haverhill, Massachusetts, not far from its original location in Boston, the birthplace of American piano design and manufacturing. Six floors of its busy factory are dedicated to handcrafting Mason & Hamlin pianos. Within its walls, a workforce of 70 highly skilled craftsmen complete every phase of production from rim-pressing to prepping the finished product.

 

The Golden Age of the Piano By the turn of the century, the Golden Age of the Piano was in full force and the most illustrious concert artists of the day aligned themselves with piano manufacturers. Mason & Hamlin was at the forefront, and great virtuosos, including Sergei Rachmaninoff, endorsed Mason & Hamlin pianos.

WESSELL, NICKEL AND GROSS ACTIONS

Composite Materials and Carbon Tube Flanges

wessell-nickel-and-gross-actions-mason-hamlin


Wessell, Nickel and Gross is at the forefront of piano action technology, bringing innovation, modern materials, and a breath of fresh air to an industry that has been stale for over 100 years.


Composite Materials

Wood was hi-tech. 100 years ago. Wood expands, contracts, distorts, and is highly inconsistent. This means more maintenance and tuning to compensate for these changes.

To avoid the shortfalls of wood, WNG uses a composite material in its actions. This material is a combination of a Nylon base resin and long fibers to create a material that both remarkably strong and rigid–an ideal material to make piano actions out of.


Carbon Tube Flanges

WNG combines a composite Shank Butt and a Carbon Tube Shank for its hammer shanks. The Shank Butt is made from the standard WNG black composite and the Carbon Tube Shank is a pultrusion made from Carbon Fiber and Epoxy. The resulting part is extraordinarily stiff and does not suffer from the tendency of a wooden shank to bend and whip.
