Just to pile on to Jason - Mason is fine. The rumor you have heard has to do with a relationship that will allow distribution of M&H pianos in China. Kirk Burgett is still the sole owner of Mason & Hamlin.

....I hate the rumor mill.

I will take some photos from NAMM and post them when I can.

This is the first time I've even heard a rumor about M&H struggling.
Curious if anyone else has heard anything more reliable (no offense to the OP).

After all, the old, original W, N & G was an entirely independent action maker.

I sincerely hope that the "entire" M&H operation remains in business for a LONG time given the current state of piano manufacturing in the USA. You are certainly entitled to your opinions about the newer M&H pianos, but I would respectfully encourage you to keep your feelings about their creator to yourself. smile
