The audio on the video was cutting out for a second when I played back Matthew's piece (same for a few of the pianists), plus he made a few mistakes. I am not sure if the audio problem had to do with the DV tape or during the video transfer.

When viewing lilylady's video you can click the profile concertpianist7 . You can see/hear the same piece Matthew played at the factory tour. This was at a recital at his prep school two months ago.

Deb and I want to thank EVERYONE at Mason & Hamlin;
  • Kirk and Gary Burgett for making everyone feel welcomed and part of the "family"

  • Cecil Ramirez for his BEAUTIFUL performance and the kind responses to everyone’s playing -especially mine \:\) -

  • Bruce Clark for his continued enthusiasm and expertise about pianos and his ability to transpose it into layman’s terms

  • Paul Monachino for sharing his life experiences with M&H...what a gem

  • Jamie(Plnt Mngr) for taking the time to talk along with going the extra mile to help me on my quest...



Both Deb and I enjoyed our visit immensely ... Deb now has a whole new opinion for Mason & Hamlins ... thanks again. [ Deb really liked the AA I played, now all I need to do is figure some way to fit it into the house...mmmmm ]

  • Frank B/aka PW, thanks so much for putting the time and effort into this event, it's such a GREAT TIME, renewing aqauntices and making new ones, hereing members perform, ...it's a MUST DO folks...MAKE THE TIME. (3 thumbs up)

Wow - thanks to everyone for taking the time to post all the pics. I feel like I've been on tour myself. Very jealous I wasn't there!! I will definitely need to schedule a tour at some point to see where my BB was born!

Just found this video of the factory tour from the TV show How It's Made.

Apologies if this was already posted somewhere.
