Mason & Hamlin BB

YEAR: 1971 (Rebuilt 2021)
LENGTH: 7′
SERIAL#: 74877
FINISH: Satin Ebony

Acoustically, the 7’ Model BB is designed for spacious homes, auditoriums, concert halls and professional studios.  Aesthetically, however, the satin ebony finish and clean lines make it at home in any environment.  We have refined this piano in our shop with new Renner hammers, shanks and flanges, a new pinblock, new strings and we have regulated the action for concert specs.  A medium-light touch, warm bass and crisp treble make this well-suited to professional use.  This piano makes it easy for us to see why the American-made Mason and Hamlin pianos have a cult following here.  It is simply a pleasure to play.

Mason & Hamlin are one of the few surviving great American piano manufacturers having earned their reputation for consistent, quality manufacturing in 3 centuries. Established in 1854 by Henry Mason and Emmons Hamlin in Boston, Massachusetts, Mason & Hamlin has changed hands and manufacturing locations several times during its history starting in the 1930s when it was purchased by the Aeolian company and production moved to NY. The maker has since returned to MA with new owners and continues to make quality instruments to this day.

 

*AMC Certified Rebuilt/Refinished Pianos include refinished case, new hammers, shanks and flanges, new strings and felt, tuning, voicing and action regulation. All brass has been polished to like-new or has been replaced.
