The Bernstein Story


Since 1981, Bernstein Pianos have offered Australians high performance instruments at affordable prices. The European parts and quality design of a Bernstein piano ensure great playing enjoyment for pianists of all levels. In 2005, Bernstein has announced the launch of its new Bernstein ‘Hailun’ series of exceptional grand and upright pianos.
The Bernstein Hailun series pianos are manufactured at the Ningbo in China. Since the 1950s this factory has been producing frames and parts for piano manufacturers worldwide. In 1986, Mr. Hailun Chen purchased this factory and, with his extensive engineering experience, Mr. Chen’s unique parts became highly demanded worldwide.

Mr. Chen developed his factory to complete the full stages of piano assembly, which seemed a natural transition with his efficient workforce of more than 900 people. It places Hailun amongst the world’s largest piano manufacturers. He invested significant money into state-of-the-art machinery not just to replicate designs, but also to refine designs to an even higher standard. The pianos from this factory have experienced great success in Europe and are now available to the American and Australian markets.

On August 16, 2005 the first Chinese-made concert grand piano was featured in the Viennese Golden Concert Hall for a German peace celebration. This piano was a Hailun grand piano. Musico is very pleased to introduce the Bernstein Hailun series to Australia.

Come and experience the outstanding range of new Bernstein Hailun pianos. They truly are Affordable Excellence continuing Bernsteins philosophy of New Horizons in Piano Performance.  

Bernstein is a registered trademark in Australia to the highest level. All new Bernstein pianos come with 10 years warranty, backed by Bernstein Australia for your peace of mind.
