Mason & Hamlin

The Model A is a remarkable piano scale design in that it sounds, performs, and projects as if it were a much longer instrument. This particular instrument, built in 1967 in East Rochester, New Yor, has had only one previous owner and is totally original with the exception of the installation of new bass strings. The instrument has been tuned, regulated, and voiced by a Registered Piano Technician of the Piano Technicians Guild to perform at a superior level expected from such a piano.

Steinway & Sons

Model M 5’7” Mahogany Serial #349291

This beautiful instrument is a prime example of Steinway & Sons quality both musically and structurally when the Steinway family owned the company, which they founded in 1853. In fact, this piano was built in 1955, the same year that Henry Z. Steinway, the last family member at the help, became the President of Steinway & Sons. Steinway was sold to Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) in 1972 and ownership has changed several times since 1972. This piano is totally original from the standpoint of parts with the exception of replacing the bass strings with new Steinway bass strings. The instrument has been tuned, regulated, and voiced by a Registered Piano Technician of the Piano Technicians Guild to perform at a superior level, expected from such a piano.
