Hailun wins Piano of the Year 2014 Award
Sunday, 18 January 2015 01:41

Every year Musical Merchandise Review Magazine (MMR Magazine) invites music retailers across North America to cast their vote for the best instruments in a wide range of categories. The Acoustic Keyboard Category had been dominated for many years by two makers of Japanese provenience. Needless to say that we were thrilled when for the first time in the history of the MMR Awards a Chinese maker was given front stage. And that in the most prestigious Acoustic Keyboard Segment! In 2012 Hailun was awarded the honors of Piano Line of the Year 2012 for its standard setting model Hailun Upright 5 Professional, HU 5P. We raised a few eyebrows. When we won again in 2013, folks started paying attention.

While no one can rest on their laurels, it seems that winning the honors three years in a row has established Hailun as a leader in the music industry. In 2014 the vote was given for the Model Hailun Grand 178 (HG 178) for its musical versatility and quality of workmanship.

To Hailun dealers the nomination and victory of the prestigious award did not come as a surprise. Hailun instruments stand out from all other brand by a number of innovations that cannot be found on any other instrument, as the Permanent Action Stability (PAS) on its upright professional series (HU1P, HU 5P), or the HLPS lid support system for grand pianos, or cold-pressed hammers, among others.

In the showcase, Hailun USA was the main presenter and demonstrated eight pianos, among them including the 2012 and 2013 MMR Piano Line of the Year Award Winners Hailun Upright 5P and the Hailun Grand 178. Joe DeFio, the Hailun Senior Vice President, was very pleased with the response from spectators. "I like watching people's faces when they sit down at one of our pianos. They see the quality and the improvements that we're making to them, and they're impressed."

Among showcasing eight amazing pianos, Hailun USA also provided all the pianos used in the classes to train the technicians throughout the five day conference. The Piano Technician Guild President, Norman Cantrell, said he was "...thankful for Hailun's participation and we’re very appreciative of our long term cooperation and strategic partnership." The training's would not have been possible without the assistance of Hailun USA. 

With the help of Hailun USA, the PTG 2014 Annual Conference and Training Institute was a complete success. Hailun USA looks forward to participating in future conferences and helping technicians achieve their goals.

Hailun takes leadership in piano safety: Introducing HLPS-1
Friday, 21 January 2011 00:00

thumb_DSC_0250-1024x685 Since the dawn of the piano (yes – it is that dramatic), one part of the grand piano refused itself to safe, convenient, and elegant use: the grand piano lid. Over the last 300 years uncounted pianists have had their fingers, hands, and arms hurt by the accidental slamming of the grand piano lid. Today, tomorrow, and for the rest of the year hundreds of thousands of grand pianos will not see their grand piano lid opened simply because the weight of the lid makes it a major effort that is fraught with risk to the human body.

That is why we are introducing the Hailun Limb Protector System 1 – HLPS 1- which allows the lid to be opened and closed with no effort. Accidents are minimized as the HLPS 1 prevents the grand piano lid to smash anyone. Powerful gas cylinders replace the traditional grand piano hinges. Hailun USA holds the exclusive patent licence rights and will be the only manufacturer to offer this safety feature on integrated in its instruments.
