It's on the first page of this thread (post #23 and post #24, near the end of the first page). Or just CLICK HERE . ;\)

A441/Jeremy, I really enjoyed your blue/jazzy performance at the M&H factory as well! You and Frank's Rocking performance provided the only non-Classical music from PW members, IIRC. Both tested the pianos in different ways and were entirely enjoyable. [EDIT: Just remembered Jeanne W's original composition that's not entirely classical, but it certainly sounded more classical than A441/Jeremy's and Frank's. ;\) ]

Thanks every one for your kind words. It was great meeting other forum members; you're such a wonderful bunch!

I look forward to seeing most (if not all) of you, as well as those who did not make it to the M&H factory tour, at the New England Piano World Piano Party [/b] that BeeLady will be hosting in MA on June 26. ( CLICK HERE for party details .)

Great stuff. I may have learned more about M&H pianos from your write-up than I would have had I played them myself. Well done & Thanks!

Jeremy, will you be coming up for the party?

Bring the Cape Cod gang if you like! The more the merrier!

That goes,too, for anyone else! PM me if you need info and directions.

I found this interesting.

In a few years, I may want to get a piano with a more "American" sound, and I'm not very excited about buying Steinway, given all the complaints I read about them.

Mason & Hamlin is a brand I want to check into eventually.

By the way, Arthur Rubinstein's biography says he got into it with the Steinway people, and that he RAVED about Mason & Hamlin.
