Hailun unveils new professional Upright Pianos for discerning and advanced players
Sunday, 17 January 2010 00:00

Hailun unveils new professional upright pianos for discerning and advanced players. According to U.S. legendary piano engineer George Emerson:  “I designed the new HU-6 upright piano for the discerning pianist who requires an instrument with the touch and sound of a grand piano. This piano is engineered in the American tradition and is equipped with a true sostenuto pedal.”

The HU-6, which is 52” in height, sets a new standard of advanced craftsmanship in the construction of upright pianos. With the sound, the action and the overall feel that one might expect from a grand piano, the HU-6 meets all of the technical and musical requirements for any institutional or professional setting.

As chief Scale Designer and Lead Engineer with thirty-two years of experience in the American piano industry, George Emerson has received the highest honor China presents to foreign experts for helping advance the development of craftsmanship and technology.  Emerson was one of only 50 foreigners out of 485,000 experts in China to receive the 2008 China Friendship Gold Medal.

The HU-6 made its U.S. debut at the NAMM 2010 in Anaheim, California, January 14-17, 2010.

Announced and to be released soon is an Hailun upright piano designed by Carl Zheng (China). Both pianos are positioned towards advanced and discerning piano players.

 
"Dreams Of The East" is one-of-a kind, all hand-carved concert grand exhibited at Music Fair
Sunday, 17 January 2010 00:00

BestOfHailun_Img1On the Saturday before the opening of the Music China Fair in Shanghai, a multinational team of piano designers is crowded around a hand-carved piano at the Hailun Piano factory in Ningbo, 175 miles to the south. The special edition concert grand with its images of Chinese landscapes carved in rosewood will be the centerpiece of Hailun's exhibit at the show. Voicing specialist Sibin Zlatkovic is making his final adjustments to its exposed strings while the rest of the team looks on.

"We did this kind of work at Bösendorfer," says Basilios Strmec, an Austrian who is now president Hailun USA. "This is a gorgeous piano, all hand-carved. It took 19 months to build".

The showpiece piano represents a first step into the luxury piano market for Hailun, whose mid-priced instruments have taken hold throughout North America and Europe as well in as the domestic Chinese market. Last year the brand received worldwide exposure in the form of a red lacquered grand piano built for ceremonies in the run-up to the Beijing Olympic Games.

After the Music China Fair, Hailun's hand-carved concert grand, called Dreams of the East, sold to a Chinese businessman for $347,000.

Hailun's goal is to build into a global brand that is recognized for its quality and its acceptance among serious musicians in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. We intend to focus on continually improving the quality of our instruments both in production and musicality- and remain an innovative company. An important part of our brand goal is to extend open arms to musicians and develop a visible artist program. Ultimately, Hailun wants to reach out and be able to serve the stages of concert halls and recording studios with instruments that stun musicians and music connoisseurs of every musical persuasion.
