Despite being made in China, I do think well of Hailun pianos. Arguably, it is China's piano manufacturer with the greatest potential. So many people ask me about getting an affordable new piano for a beginner. I've included Hailun in my piano reviews based on this.
Hailun is a fairly new China-made piano. Its factory started making piano parts in 1986 and assembling whole pianos in 1995. Despite its short history, Hailun was conferred the "China's Top Brand Name" award in 2006.
A large part of Hailun's success is due to it's founder's commitment to excellence, quality and innovation. Mr Chen Hailun has engaged some of the best workers, foreign expertise and invested in Japanese digital equipment to this aim.
The Piano Book by Larry Fine considers Hailun "better than most other pianos from China" and possibly better than some other non-China mid-priced pianos.
On playing, I was surprised by the rather rich tone quality of the instrument especially for a China-make. With regards to durability, we just need to wait and see. With its affordable entry price at the moment, it could work out to be a worthwhile investment.
In Singapore, Hailun has gradually gained popularity as some music schools and the Victoria Concert Hall purchased some of the pianos for their music rooms. It is sold by Pianomaster in Singapore.
