|Knowing the fair market value of Falcone pianos is useful to sellers, buyers and owners.
This information can help guide you in making important decisions.
The Falcone Piano Co. was established in 1982 by Santi Falcone, a piano technician, rebuilder and retailer in
the Boston, MA area who, in the early 1980s, began to build his own grand pianos. Originally from Sicily, Falcone
came to the USA at age fourteen, entered the piano technician and retail trade, started to rebuild older pianos,
and finally set out to build an instrument that was of the highest caliber as well as being affordable. After
eventually facing financial difficulty, Falcone was purchased by Bernard Greer in 1989. Falcone then purchased
control of the names Mason & Hamlin, Knabe, Sohmer and George Steck (mostly left over from the bankrupt
Aeolian company of New York). Falcone Piano Co. then became the Mason & Hamlin Companies Corp. After
facing financial troubles of their own, the new owner filed for bankruptcy, selling to the Burgett brothers, owners
of PianoDisc (Music Systems Research) in 1996. In about 2001 the Falcone name was licensed to the Sejung
Corp. of Quingdao, China, who marketed the Falcone name for pianos sold in the USA from PianoDisc/Mason &
Hamlin. By 2012, the Sejung factory was acquired by Chinese firm, Parsons Music, and by 2013, Falcone pianos
were being manufactured for North America by the Nanjing Moutrie Piano Co. in Nanjing, China
and distributed by Welkin Sound Inc., of Ontario, California.
By 2016, the Falcone name was no longer used.
