An exquisite instrument from Hermann Hauser II, who is considered to be one of the greatest makers of the twentieth century. It has been played regularly over the course of over 5 decades but was also meticulously cared for - it is in exceptionally well-preserved original condition and is simply a top example of Hauser II's finest handwork. Sound-wise this instrument is a standout. In great Hauser style, the fundamental tones of every note across all registers are very clear and bell-like with almost perfect separation. Basses are strong, steady and precise. Overall, the instrument is like an extremely well-balanced piano, but with the lyrical charm and sweetness of a great, warm and loose Hauser I. The old, aged top has a deep, honey/amber color in the patina, contributing to the enhancement of the sound thanks to the thicker, crystallized resin in the grain. The Hauser dynasty, now spanning 5 generations, have produced instruments played by countless concert artists including Andres Segovia, Julian Bream, the Romeros and many others. This is a near perfect example of the archetypal Hauser II for sound, appearance, and playability - a dream for either collector or performer.
