"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."

-- Joyce Kelly
Owner of a Fandrich & Sons Model 215 7' grand.



"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!"

University of Washington Music Dept. Professor Emeritus



"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."


-- Jerry

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!"
