Established in 1835, Hallet and Davis was one of the first major manufactures established in America. They were well known for quality in their full line of Upright, Square, and Grand Pianos, producing some of their best in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
 
This fine 5′ 2″ piano came to me several years ago, and for some time was a spec piano to occupy my shop time in between work on instruments for private clients. It all came together last year, and it has a terrific mellow tone throughout.
