2010 Brigham Selects Hailun
Starting in 2000, with 7 pianos in a 700 SF condo, I have sold pianos, through 2010, when I had 23 pianos in my home and garage. The first Hailun was delivered to our front living room after I selected it from a lineup of pianos at a Piano Technicians’ Convention. My wife Karmel, suggested it was time to get a commercial location. I told her the following as I tuned that first piano in our front living room just out of the box….
2010 – “This piano is so good! It’s better than a Yamaha & Kawai. I can’t tell people how good this piano is because they’ll just think it’s a sales pitch.” –Brigham Larson
Now I can tell people, as the industry rated it higher than Yamaha & Kawai! WOW!
I don’t feign love for this piano because it happens to be in my store. Hailun is in my store because I love the piano and selected it as a technician, musician and consumer.
- Technician – As a career piano technician, having tuned over 20,000 pianos and running a rebuilding shop, I am passionate about Hailun from a technical aspect. It is a solid beast that is a joy to work on!
- Musician – As a musician and gigging jazz pianist, I love this piano’s touch and tone. I describe its sound as being wrapped in a big warm blanket. It’s very powerful, rich, deep and full!
- Father – I want a quality deal like most folks and Hailun knocks it out of the park! I get a super solid instrument to inspire my kids at a much more affordable price than comparably rated brands. It’s like getting an Accord at a Civic price!
National Industry Selects Hailun
2012, 2013 – Acoustic Piano Line of the Year – Two Years Running!!
It is big news and a pretty noticeable upset in the piano world after Yamaha and Kawai have been used to winning for so long… Watch out world – Hailun is getting noticed!
2012 – Piano of the Year HU5P 50” Upright
“Now here’s a surprise. For many years there, it appeared that Kawai’s K-3 had established a veritable lock in this category, but in 2012 China’s Hailun won “Acoustic Piano Line of the Year” in convincing fashion. The HU 5P was praised for meticulous craftsmanship and classic designs.”
2013 – Piano of the Year 178 – 5’10” Grand
Voted “Best Piano in North America!!”
“Last year it came as a surprise that longtime winner as “Acoustic Piano Line of the Year,” the Kawai K-3, was dethroned by China’s Hailun Pianos (the Hu-5P, specifically). This year, Hailun flat-out dominated, although this time it was the HG-178 grand piano heading to the winner’s circle.”

2010 – Piano Technicians Guild Selects Hailun
