I a purchased a older mason & Hamlin console piano from a neighbor. It’s been well kept and in good condition. His son doesn’t play and it was just taking up space. I didn’t pay much for it.

My question is regarding the “tension-resonator” I thought all mason Hamlin made after a certain year had these. Although when I picked it up I didn’t see one.

Is there a year they were not made with these? How come there is not one on mine?

Did some google searches and the Serial number says it was built around 1948-49. SN# 56377 “E” above the SN.

Don’t know too much about pianos.

The tension resonator would be a single metal bar with a turnbuckle behind the soundboard going left to right.

Then it does not have one.

It is the same as Knabe consoles of the period. I have never been particularly impressed by that model.
