Here are some quotes about the Mason & Hamlin Piano

I have often heard great pianists talk about how certain pianos would “speak” to them.  I never really understood this until I first played this particular piano.  From the first encounter, I felt a special connection to this Mason & Hamlin concert grand.  There is something about that instrument in that space that felt magical to me.  I know that audiences felt it too.  I hope that others have the opportunity to experience its magic for many years to come.

Playing in a duo setting with piano and flute requires an excellent piano. The middle range of the piano must be able to be played in unison with flute without clashing due to intonation or sound quality. Not only does the Siskiyou Barn Mason and Hamlin maintain it’s tuning throughout a demanding concert, it rings beautifully in every register! We so look forward to performing at the Barn each time, because after years of working on our music, the chance to perform it in an ideal setting with an exceptional piano is a very special treat.”  Holly Hofmann

“The Old Siskiyou Barn Mason & Hamlin is one of the best grands I’ve encountered in working around the country and abroad in recent years. I’m always particularly impressed with the consistently regulated action and evenness of this instrument’s keyboard. A total pleasure to play!”
Mike Wofford, jazz pianist.
