Like Steinway & Sons, Mason & Hamlin worked with famous artists to promote their wares. Sergei Rachmaninoff was one of the most famous pianists to makes use of a Mason & Hamlin concert grand piano. Acting as a brand ambassador for the Mason & Hamlin company, he was quoted saying, “I desire to play the Mason & Hamlin pianos…I feel that if I have succeeded in making even the slightest impression upon the public by my playing, a great part of my success is due to your instruments.”
Although it’s an oldie it still has that huge Mason & Hamlin sound and will give musical pleasure for decades to come.
