"I have played many pianos over the past half century and consider myself an expert in judging the quality of the instrument, both the action and of course the sound. The Fandrich & Sons pianos I heard and played during our recent visit were beautiful instruments. One expected the grands of course to be able to produce a big, beautiful sound and they did indeed. But I was nearly knocked off my feet when I heard what the Fandrich & Sons upright pianos could do. In the past the only upright I ever heard which was halfway decent was the old Steinway upright. But it was nothing compared to your uprights. I wouldn't have ever believed that an upright could sound like a grand but as the saying goes... 'Seeing is believing' or in this case 'Hearing is believing'. This should prove a blessing to those who need the sound and performance of a grand but whose limitations of space make it impossible to own one. I add my congratulations to those of many others."

"Fandrich & Sons continues its proven record of outstanding service to the northwest, both as the source of extraordinarily fine pianos as well as precision voicing, rebuilding, and refinishing, always promptly, and at extremely reasonable prices. Their patented Fandrich Vertical Action upright pianos are truly grand, and deserve a trip to their showroom in Stanwood to be heard. One of my adult students is the proud new owner of another of their offerings: a Bohemia Piano from the Czech Republic, an excellent value, with additional voicing by the Fandrichs routinely included. I highly recommend this valuable resource to anyone looking for an instrument, new or used, or seeking fine service for their own piano."

"As a teacher, I couldn't ask for a better piano. It is very easy to make this piano express what you want. The action is light and easy, which for a beginner is wonderful, they can easily experience dynamic differences. A friend playing my piano for the first time couldn't believe how 'different' my piano was from his. He said, 'You can tell that there's nothing wasted. Playing it was like slicing butter.' He hadn't realized there was such a difference in pianos."

"The Fandrich upright, with its Grand Action, is really terrific. In time, I hope that all uprights will have the same action. The grands are an excellent value. I have recommended the Fandrich pianos to many of my students."

"The first time I played on your piano with the new [FVA] action, I found it an amazing experience - it was difficult to believe I was not playing on a grand piano. I could see that I was sitting in front of an upright instrument, but the sensitivity to the touch and its capability of giving many degrees of shading and tone coloring were astonishing. Even grand pianos, unless they are the finest, do not respond with the gradations of tone that this upright can give. Recalling the poor pianos often found in practice rooms throughout many music schools and colleges, I cannot help thinking what a boon this piano would be to many aspiring young musicians. In homes also, this piano will greatly help student pianists to develop sensitivity to tone and touch. If a student has a good piano which responds to the various types of touch, gives different tone colors, and lets him know when he has gotten the touch right, he is going to develop greater control and skill in less time. I feel this invention will prove a blessing to all students and their teachers."
