During a golden era lasting from the 1880s to the 1930s, Mason & Hamlin pianos of Boston were the most distinguished and respected rival of Steinway & Sons of New York. For 50 years, Mason & Hamlin’s Model 50 was the tallest American-made vertical piano model one could buy, with a larger soundboard and longer strings than any of the American consoles and spinets that were so popular in Mid-Century America. The Model 50 was constructed with a massive back structure and trademark metal tension resonator Mason & Hamlin used in their grand piano models, producing a similarly dark, heavy, lush tone and deep bass that rivals many grand pianos. Also unusual among upright pianos, this piano has a full sostenuto pedal, so if you need the professional capability and rich sound of a grand piano but the compact footprint of a vertical piano, you should serious consider this piano. This model is still made today with an MSRP of $28,210, but why would you spend so much when you can find the same model at our shop for many thousands less? Don’t miss your chance to own one of the few examples left today of high-end American piano craftsmanship.
