"I want to express my sincere appreciation for your visit to check and tune my new Fandrich. The clarity of sound is just what I have been looking for. I am describing the lower range as like bronze, the midrange as golden, and the upper range as silvery. Best wishes for continued success in adding to the happiness of your fellow musicians."

"My piano was delivered this Wednesday and it is beautiful with a beyond belief gorgeous sound. I am totally delighted. I've played the piano since the age of 7, except for the years I spent living on a boat and then finishing my doctoral work. Now I am 70 and feel that I'm gaining back a major part of my life, only this time with an instrument that sings in a way I've never experienced! My training is classical but I've always loved playing "by ear". Perhaps I will find someone to teach me chords now that I can hear every note singing even through those chords I spontaneously make up! The harmonies are luscious because each note 'speaks'. I've played on many pianos and not one with as beautiful a sound as this."

"It was worth living to be 90 to get to play this piano!"

"I am in love with the piano. Such superb craftsmanship. The touch, the tone. Such a sound. So beautiful in that room. I had a few students drop by Friday afternoon (school was on break) and they sang some songs with the Fandrich. One of the third grade girls later said,"I sing better with this piano because I hear it better and it makes me want to sing more." I knew that would happen. Bertschi kids are going to have even better ears.

Thank you so much for your devotion to making such fine instruments. It is everything I had hoped for, and more. More than one person has been brought to tears at their first hearing."

"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."
