1927 Mason & Hamlin Model BB Semi-Concert Grand Piano #36328 – Boston

Since 1854, Mason & Hamlin has represented the finest in American made musical instrument craftsmanship. Now based in Haverhill, MA, Mason & Hamlin continues the production of fine, concert level pianos. Mason & Hamlin Model BB #36328 was built at their original Boston Piano Factory in 1927. Measuring 6′ 11 1/2″ in length, this semi-concert grand piano is currently undergoing a full restoration. This exacting process includes a new solid spruce soundboard, a fully rebuilt action with new hammers, new Wessel, Nickel & Gross composite shanks and flanges and a new custom fitted hard rock pinblock for optimum stability. New premium music wire and custom copper wound bass strings will be installed. The cabinet will be refinished in a closed pore, hand rubbed satin ebony.

“This piano has an exquisite tone, even with the cracked and repaired soundboard. We are currently in the process of fully rebuilding this piano and replacing the original board with a new, custom fitted soundboard. Due to the already beautiful tone of this piano, we expect this instrument to perform well above the average rebuilt or even new Mason & Hamlin BB on the market today.” – Dennis Chupp

This Mason & Hamlin BB features a full, warm quality of tone with a powerful bass section. The action is light with a good level of control making it a joy to play. Like other pianos built by Mason & Hamlin, this instrument includes several features that contribute to its powerful sound and lasting durability. The full perimeter cast iron plate spans from each side of the cabinet ensuring the highest level of stability. The Tension Resonator underneath the piano locks the uncommonly thick hard rock maple rim into its permanent shape which helps the soundboard retain its crown.

Compared to the similar Steinway & Sons Model B, Mason & Hamlin BB Grands measure approx. four inches wider. This allows for a much greater soundboard area and a powerful, full tone. Mason & Hamlin Grand Pianos feature an inherent a tonal quality and touch all their own. Due to their powerful bass sections, many Mason & Hamlin pianos sound larger than their actual size and being ‘overbuilt’ allows them to perform well under consistent use. Pianos from the company’s Boston era are considered to be the finest ever produced. A properly prepped Mason can easily go toe to toe with similar Steinway & Sons instruments at a reasonable price point. Which one will you prefer? Comparing them in person is the only way to find out!
