"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 Fandrich upright is nothing short of magnificent. My personal feelings are confirmed by two of my teachers: One, from Russia and classically trained, told me without a doubt it is the best touch of any upright piano she has ever played. The other, an excellent jazz player with 34 years experience, told me it had the best touch he had ever played also. He even joked that he'd pay me to come teach me on my piano if he could play for a few minutes after the lessons! I searched all the brands available today, and flew up to Darrell and Heather's studio in Stanwood, Washington for a test playing. I'm not a great player, but I was pretty serious about getting a quality instrument and wanted to check out what all the "Fandrich commotion" was about. Since ordering the piano, they have been to my house twice to check up on it and tune it for me. Imagine that! It was like having Steinway himself come to my home to make sure my piano met his expectations! Their attentiveness to their product has really been unparalleled, and I believe Darrell is a living technical genius. Nice people, too."
