  • The New Hailun Crescendo HU121C Acoustic Piano

    The Hailun HU121C is an instrument of the highest quality and has a superb rich tone and stunning contemporary aesthetics. The high sheen grained Walnut polyester casing is beautiful and distinctively different in shape than other modern uprights, with shapely curves and glowing brassworks that make it stand out from the crowd. 

    The protective brass plate surrounding the pedals is a nice feature and the slow fall lid system means the lid closes slowly by itself, thus protecting the player fingers and piano from impact damage. The practice pedal which is used for quiet play means you can play at any time of the day or night without disturbing your family or neighbours. 

    For half the price of a Yamaha or Kawai, you still get the same level of quality and performance which is on par with the very best makers in the industry. Our low price includes delivery, tuning on arrival, five year warranty and new adjustable matching German stool. 

    This instrument will easily guide any musician through their grades and beyond and is built to last a lifetime.
