Home of the Fandrich Vertical Action that plays like a grand.

Every piano should be a joy to play for pianists of every skill level, but particularly for beginners.

A sure way to inspire the beginning player is to provide an instrument that is fun and rewarding to play. Having to struggle with a non-responsive action and unpleasant tone quickly dampens a beginner's enthusiasm, because the best efforts never seem musical.

It is natural to assume that a new piano of reputable make will be musical. In reality only the finest and most expensive pianos, mostly German and top-of-the-line Japanese, have well developed tonal designs and are actually completed at the factory to the extent that they can be played musically. Nonetheless, most less costly pianos are represented as having a great tone, a responsive action, etc., because less than 5% of piano sales involve experienced pianists who know a musical piano when they play one.

Most of the piano market consists of people who don't play much, if at all, buying for someone else, such as a child. They usually end up purchasing a piano that looks good, has a recognizable brand name and is bargain priced. The most common result is that the player, often a child, soon tires of the instrument, not realizing that their loss of enthusiasm is due to a poorly prepared and maintained piano that is not rewarding for anyone to play or listen to.

We at Fandrich & Sons love the piano and are committed to building moderately priced pianos that are musically comparable to the world's finest and most expensive instruments.

We promise that every piano we sell will be a joy to play.
"This piano is so different from the one I sent down to you - different in all the right ways! No matter how quietly I play, all the notes sound and sound evenly. The keys glide under my fingers. My big fear was that in order to get the pppp we would have to give up the FFFF, but no, it has it all. I'm not sure how this works. I have always liked the sound of my piano but since you worked on it, it has found a new, even more beautiful voice. It SINGS! I could not be happier with it and have already suggested to two of my friends who either need new pianos or serious work done on their existing pianos that you are the ones to do it."
