Opinion of J. (x. Shaw, the Woll-known Lusicinl ( ritic;.
,,,.,,.,. t, .no MM'F'o Co.: The great aim of manufacturers of the Piano Forte, in times past, has been to increase the .piality. purity and
brilii inc7"f tone o, in otlier words, to gain power without harshness, purity and roundness of tone without metallic effect, and brilliancy in the upper
m)tC)hckeV ' 1 van; Ste nway fdlowed. scarcely behind ; and lastly, Mathushek with
1,iS Chick?r'iii.' achieved all these combinations without the necessary stability, which Steinway has partially secured. Mathushek, in combination, ha.
excelled them afl, and has overcome many obstacles never before attempted.
First-In power, brilliancy, and purity of time, there can be no question.
Secondly For stability, roundness and coutinuousne s. or singing tone, he stands at the head. i.(in..nf n.n Plmim
