"I'm writing this message to thank you for taking the time to show me your excellent pianos. I've visited several piano stores in Seattle and the Eastside, and I've tried some of the finest instruments in the world, so it was a pleasant surprise to find pianos that I thought were at least their equal at a small family business nearby. Your marvelous upright [Model 126V] made the greatest impression of all, because I had thought it impossible to buy an upright without considering it some sort of unpleasant compromise. Your upright, on the other hand, was as responsive, if not more so, than other instruments I have tried and the tone was clear and refined. Coupled with the quality of your work my belief in dealing with local people who provide excellent service, and the result is my sincere hope that in the not too distant future you will be able to count me among your satisfied customers. Thanks again for showing me such musical pianos."

"I can safely say I've never enjoyed playing a piano more. This is the best sounding piano I have ever heard."

New owner of a Model 185, Palm Springs, CA



"Our search for a piano consumed several months. We read The Piano Book and seriously researched all our options. During this time we played several Steinways, Bosendorfers, Schimmels, Mason & Hamlins, Kawais, and Yamahas. Although these well-known pianos are beautiful to look at, hard as it is to believe we found them inconsistent at best. The inflated prices were more a reflection of pedigree and finish rather than action and tone. In comparison, the Fandrich and Sons Model 185 played beautifully. The action was fully developed and the sound was warm and full. All tones were consistent, even with the slightest touch. If you are looking for the prestige of a big name piano and have money to burn, buy one of the brands mentioned earlier. But if you are looking for the best value going in a grand piano, buy a Fandrich and Sons model 185. We enjoy it more each day. Thank you Darrell and Heather."

"Your vertical action upright is absolutely amazing! It has a touch and tone that rivals some of the best grands I've played. I own a Fandrich and Sons 5'9" grand piano and love it, but I must admit that at first I was skeptical that any upright could play like a grand. But after playing on your upright for two weeks in Seattle last December, I became a believer. I've been telling my friends in New York about your pianos ever since I came back. You'd better buy one of these pianos while you can still afford to!"

Regarding Fandrich and Sons Model 126v.

At the July 2002 International Piano Technician Guild Convention in Chicago, IL there were 106 exhibits, including virtually all of the piano manufacturers. We happened to be in the booth next to the 7' Bosendorfer with our Fandrich & Sons Model 165HGS 5'5" grand piano and one of our Model 126V uprights. Besides having at least 6 dealers tell us they would buy our pianos at our current prices and mark them up almost double if we would let them become Fandrich & Sons dealers, we heard the following comments:

Regarding the Model 126V, as always, "This is the best upright piano I have ever played, the tone is so even and clear, the action is amazing!"

Regarding the 5'5" Model 165HGS, "This is the best action of any of the pianos here. It is so controllable, even at the quietest levels of play." "The tone of your grand is more even than the Bosendorfer [to be fair, the Bosendorfer had been delivered to the convention right out of the box]. "This piano has more heart than the 9' Bluthner concert grand on the other side of the curtain!" "This is how a treble should sound!".

And over and over, "It's hard to believe this is only a 5'5" grand, it sounds at least as big as a 6'." and also many times "My friend said I had to come and try this piano!"
