Tom, welcome back,

Which dealers? Which models? Artist and/or Classic grands? How many?

Tom mentions the new pianos have arrived at Mason & Hamlin dealers, but nowhere on the company's website can you search for dealers. Nor is there a dealer anywhere between Philly, Baltimore, DC, and Richmond. It seems odd to leave such lucrative markets (in particular the DC area) from your products. Alas, I live in Baltimore, so if I want to see a new M&H in person, where do I have to go? New York? Haverhill? With any other high-profile piano manufacturer I have a dealer within a 30-45 minute drive.

As far as I know there are no M&H dealers in NYC.

I was looking for Mason & Hamlin dealers a couple years ago and failed to figure out where exactly they are, lol. I don’t understand how they’re able to sell pianos. 🤔

I tried that several times a couple years ago and it never worked, lol. Nobody ever calls back, nobody ever answers the phone. So bizarre! 🤷‍♀️

Let me do their job even if they don't pay me. I am sure I will be omitting somebody, just because I don't know them. All of these have (or had?) both new and used when I checked, but none had the Artist Series that I was interested before getting a second hand AA.

https://www.azpiano.com/ (Arizona)
https://www.wellspianos.com/mason-hamlin (Saint Paul, MN)
Jim Laabs (MN & WI, many sold over the phone sight unseen or after a travel there from the buyer -- well organized for that)
https://www.reederpianos.com/retail/restoredpianos.html (Michigan)
https://www.hollywoodpiano.com/our-selection/pianos/ (various California locations)
https://livingpianos.com/ (sells mostly online, but it is now based in Ohio where I believe they have a by-appointment showroom, after being in California forever, and Arizona for a short while)

Hope this helps -- please share what you learn

Cheers,
Davide

Clicked on all of your links (thanks for all of those!) and none of them appear to indicate that the dealer in question has an M&H Artist or Classic grand for sale.

Freeburgs in Hendersonville North Carolina just got in a New Classic 150

Also, they are a Mason & Hamlin Dealer and great people to deal with.

I know Michelle's Pianos in Portland is a Mason dealer. But that's the only one I know.

If anyone is still interested in finding a list of dealers, I could try emailing Nina at WNG, assuming WNG might have a way to find out.

Good grief. So the only place you can buy a M&H in the entire Northeast Corridor is at the Haverhill factory? That seems to be leaving a lot of money "on the table" so to speak.

Though I know they used to have at least two dealers in the DC area alone not too long ago, one of whom has a significant presence here on the forums and is very well-respected. I'll let you make of that what you will...

Where did you see that Estrin's shop is now in Ohio? I don't see an address or any location info on his website.

That's quite something that he shut down his CA location, hopped to AZ, and then Ohio.

Peninsula Piano Brokers in Palo Alto CA is, per their website, an M&H dealer. I haven't been there in several years, but "back in the day" they definitely had M&H's on display.

Freeburg Pianos (NC)
Altenburg Piano House (NJ)
Falcetti Pianos (MA)
Londonderry Piano (NH)

Which reminds me of the piano stool joke which I cannot repeat on the open forum.

I'm not sure the place is even in business now. Fifteen years ago, when I was living in Palo Alto, they definitely had M&H; I tried a CC model there just for fun. But when I visited the area in late 2019, the only place on the Peninsula I could find that had M&H was World Class Pianos in Burlingame.

I saw a couple at Freeburg when I visited last fall. Altenburg’s is close enough to NYC (in downtown Elizabeth, NJ) that I’d call it the NYC area.

yes, Freeburgs has a M&H CC, A and a BB, that I really liked (The BB now has a deposit on it)

They also just got in a M&H Classic 150 with a Player in it and they have a nice Upright 50.

It's my hope they get in an AA from the turn of the century rebuilt or even a BB
Better made and more affordable I believe.

And I spoke with Levi and told him, I would possibly consider trading in the Steinway if a Great M&H AA from the 20's were to come along
I played the 'A' but was not overwhelmed, but I did play the CC & BB, both were far out of my price point I could easily get used to having them in my living room!

But I am Falling In Love more and more with my Steinway, that plays like a M&H The BEST of BOTH WORLDS! LOL

Thank you, would you please? It would be nice to have this here for others who are searching! 😊👍

Just guessing, but my guess is that none of the U.S. dealers that have been mentioned have a new M&H Artist series grand for sale. I'd love to hear otherwise (with the location).

I'd also love to hear from someone in China who can shed light on whether any of these new Artist series grands are for sale in China (presumably under the Henry Mason name).

I am pretty sure you are right or close to it. Reading in between the lines from the email from Tom, I think it meant: two or three dealers have two or three (each) of these instruments in stock. If you are serious about getting one, call them all over the phone.

Regarding LivingPianos being in Ohio, Robert Estrin told me so. He also said that he could find one of the Artist series instrument for me. He would organize for an in-person try, but with COVID (this was a few months back) it were too complicated and distant for me. Meanwhile I bought a used AA, so I am not serious about these instruments anymore, but I am still curious about them.

Let me state it again: this market is small, tiny. Nobody is going to waste their time on putting this information on a website (remember, M&H sells only about 1 piano per day in the whole world, combined for all their series!)

If you care about finding and/or trying one of these instruments, pick up the phone, or at least send a personal email to the stores who are of interest to you.
