WN&G CARBON COMPOSITE PARTS
Mason & Hamlin features the most superior piano parts
have revolutionized the piano by allowing the many thousands of mechanical parts to remain completely
stable; even under heavy changes in humidity
Carbon composite parts are incredibly stronger and much lighter than typical wooden parts. These light-weight parts allow the keys move much more fluid and quicker with less effort from the student or performer.
THE TENSION RESONATOR
Another exclusive invention, which only Mason & Hamlin pianos feature.
The tension resonator is a tight truss rod system, which completely binds the entire piano together - Preventing it from shrinking or expanding and losing its "crown" over time.
The "crown" of the soundboard is under a great deal of pressure and is actually forced into a slight concave shape. This is how the
vibrations can be transmitted so freely.
When a piano gets older, they may lose their crown, thus the sound and tone quality can diminish.
