Advantages to Hailun Pianos
We encourage you to compare the specificiations of top pianos to those of the Hailun models.
- German Röslau strings
- real ebony wood for the black keys
- wet sandcast full-perimeter plates
- 17-layer maple pinblock
- mountain spruce soundboard (with 15 degree miniscus for durability and flexibilty)
- quartersawn spruce ribs
- adjustable bench that can also store music
Hailun has hired a veritable Who’s Who of piano industry experts:
- Peter Veletzky, the 4th generation owner of Wendl & Lung pianos and an Austrian Master Piano Builder
- George Emerson of Baldwin and Mason & Hamlin
- Sibin Zlakovic, a master tuner and voicer with Bosendorfer
- Stephen Paulello, a concert pianist, teacher, and technician trained at Bechstein and Steinway
- Keith Bowman & Mike Carraher, top American Registered Piano Technicians (RPTs)
Hailun won the MMR Acoustic Piano Line of the Year in 2012, 2013, and 2014. Not only do they make a great piano, but they work hard to keep the prices reasonable. Especially for the larger models, the price difference between a more brand-name piano and the Hailun equivalent can be fairly substantial.

Mr. Chen Hailun still has ownership of Hailun Piano, after founding it in 1986. In 2012, Hailun went public with an Initial Public Offering (IPO), the first privately-held Chinese piano companies to do so. Read more here on the official China Cultural Industry Association page about Hailun.
