Brands Steinway Pianos
Steinway


We are America's foremost retailer of rebuilt, used and nearly new Steinway pianos, with over 100 Steinways in our inventory.


Our mission is to provide pianists with structurally superior, beautiful sounding Steinway pianos for themselves and for the venues in which they perform. Our mission is accomplished in three ways:



  • We hand-pick our Steinway piano inventory. This is particularly important since no two Steinway pianos are the same. We carefully select Steinway pianos that meet (or have the potential to meet) our uncompromising quality and performance standards.


  • We own a 12,000-foot piano restoration factory, which we recently expanded to a new state-of-the-art facility. Our highly-skilled craftsmen utilize our proprietary machinery and processes, which have been developed and refined over the past 30 years, to rebuild our vintage Steinway pianos to their full original glory. SteinwayWe set the industry standard for Steinway rebuilding quality, which benefits our clients alone, as we do not offer our rebuilding services to other dealers. The used Steinway piano market has clearly recognized our rebuilding quality and value - while we sell our rebuilt Steinway pianos at prices that are competitive with other rebuilders, our pianos generally re-sell in the secondary market for considerable premiums compared to pianos rebuilt by others. The "Faust Harrison rebuilt Steinway" has become a highly sought-after brand in and of itself.

Steinway
  • Our sales staff collectively has one of the largest repositories of Steinway piano knowledge and expertise in the world. Our clients depend on this knowledge and expertise to help them find the right piano that they and their families will treasure and enjoy for a lifetime.

We carry rebuilt and nearly new Steinway pianos, as well as a variety of used Steinway pianos in good, very good or excellent condition. Of our Steinway pianos for sale:


  • Our nearly new Steinways feel, sound and look like new but generally sell for significantly less than the price of a new Steinway piano. And they’re backed by one of the strongest guarantees in the industry.
  • Our fully rebuilt and refinished vintage era Steinways have the special sound and character of “golden-age” Steinways that continues to be loved by pianists around the world. The standards to which these pianos are restored are second to none. And they’re backed by one of the strongest guarantees in the industry.
  • Our used "value"Steinway pianos that are not in need of full restoration. We prep and detail them to the highest Faust Harrison standards and back them with limited, but still excellent, Faust Harrison guarantees.

Brands | Compare Mason & Hamlin to Steinway

The Mason & Hamlin piano was designed by Richard Gertz, one of the world’s foremost piano designers of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Trained by the great piano masters at the Blüthner and Bösendorfer factories in Europe, he helped to design and build modern Steinway pianos before moving on to design and build the Mason & Hamlin pianos. It is no wonder that the tonal qualities of Mason & Hamlin pianos are similar to those of Steinway pianos. It is also no wonder that Mason & Hamlin pianos are in a variety of ways more sophisticated and advanced than Steinways and much more durable. Today’s Mason & Hamlins are meticulously handcrafted in Haverhill, Massachusetts to the highest standards in the industry with materials and parts that we find to be equal or superior to the materials and parts found in new Steinways.

Several years ago, in a direct comparison of new Steinway B (6’ 11”) and new Mason & Hamlin BB (7’ 0”) grand pianos, 280 professional pianists compared their tonal qualities and found them to be equally preferable. However, these pianists recognized and preferred the superior action mechanism in the Mason & Hamlins. Two out of three of these pianists preferred the touch of the Mason & Hamlins to the touch of the Steinways.

The model A Mason & Hamlin (5’ 8”) piano is just one inch longer than Steinway model M (5’ 7”), but it is a richer and more orchestral piano than the model M. Indeed, as can be seen in the accompanying comparison sheet, the Mason & Hamlin model A is more appropriately compared to the Steinway models O or L (5’ 11”).

We offer our Mason & Hamlin grands at prices that are substantially below MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) and we include an adjustable artist bench and one in-home tuning. We also include an extraordinarily comprehensive concert prep. This assures that the pianos that we sell are perfect and concert-ready the day that they arrive in the home.
