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 .)

Ax,

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!

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.
