5'8" Grand Piano
At 5'8.5", the Model A is widely considered to be the world's best grand piano under 6 feet. Full of expression, character, and exquisite beauty, the Model A provides unmatched volume, tone, and projection in its class, with sound quality and depth comparable to instruments of much greater size. This elegant, high performance piano is the perfect combination of size and sound for professional studios, conservatories, and institutions, just as much as it is suited for the home.
17-Ply Flat-Sawn Hard Rock Maple Rim - Mason & Hamlin pianos have the largest and strongest rims in the world.
Eastern White Spruce, Multi-Radius Crown, Edge Tapering, rims cut to the soundboard, and Tension Resonator. The Mason & Hamlin soundboard emanates a sound that can be described as both sweet and powerful, melodic and thunderous. These characteristics can be attributed to their choice of material — tight-grained, quarter-sawn Eastern White Spruce that is dried and aged to perfection. This particular type of tree is ideally suited for its role, and produces the most musical sound of any available material. Mason & Hamlin shapes the crown of their soundboards via cutting it directly into the ribs themselves. This method allows them to precisely control the shape of each rib, and is what makes their Multi-Radius Crown Soundboard possible. By starting with a large radius in the treble and steadily reducing it towards the bass, their soundboard is uniquely optimized for both the high frequency of treble notes, which require a stiffer soundboard for clear projection, as well as the low frequency of bass notes, that favor a flexible soundboard for full response. The final part of their soundboard's construction is a gradual tapering towards its edges. Mason & Hamlin's unique Tension Resonator ensures that every measurement and dimension of our pianos remains unchanged through the passing of time and seasons.
