Not long ago, piano manufacturing was one of America’s largest and most formidable industries, employing tens of thousands of workers. Today, only two active manufacturers remain: Steinway & Sons in New York, and Mason & Hamlin in Boston.

Mason & Hamlin is one of America’s oldest and most prestigious piano manufacturers, with a history dating back to the mid-19th century. In the face of modernization and globalization, the company has managed to stay afloat by sticking to its roots, drawing inspiration from a bygone era of artisanry.
