Sound of a grand, space of an upright - rare Mason & Hamlin
I am selling my beloved Mason & Hamlin upright piano for reason of upcoming nuptials and possible move overseas.
It's a model D from 1913, serial number D22015. The piano is 52 inches high (what they used to call in those days an 'upright grand') and is in excellent condition. It was expertly restored by Beethoven Pianos (where I purchased it) in Manhattan in 2007. New strings were put in, along with new tuning pins and damper felts, new hammers and shanks. The pinblock is original as are the soundboard and keys.
In addition to possessing all of the fine attributes one would associate with a vintage Mason & Hamlin, there is a truly unique element that distinguishes this instrument: its magnificent cabinet. It is very ornate and intricate. Beautifully decorated and quite striking. The wood is a deep mahogany color with a mat finish.
This is a rare instrument that not only looks gorgeous but also sounds amazing. It has a deep, full and incredibly expressive tone.
The piano was very well cared for and tuned regularly. It comes with a strings muting rail installed for quiet playing, and a very comfortable top of line piano bench (in addition to the original bench)

I'm asking $10,900 for this piano which I purchased for $16,310. It’s a great price for an incredible instrument that I hope will bring a lot of enjoyment for years to come to its new owner. . .
