"Thank you so much for your work to restore my piano. I felt a great benefit of your work immediately when I worked with my cellist on Friday and with a singer on Saturday. It responds very easily, immediately, and evenly to my touch and intentions, allows me to play with great precision in a musical sense. What is for me new is the - relative - lightness of the bass register, in a good and balanced sense, which I remember as having always been nearly too strong. (I like a strong bass in principle.) All over there is a wonderful clarity to the sound."

"WOW!!!!! HOLY COW!!!!!!!

This is one of the finest instruments I've had the fortune to play on. Heather, you and Darrell have done an amazing job on this piano. The moment I started to play it, I was blown away on the tone, the touch, everything. Love is a word not strong enough to describe it."

"This piano is so different from the one I sent down to you - different in all the right ways! No matter how quietly I play, all the notes sound and sound evenly. The keys glide under my fingers. My big fear was that in order to get the pppp we would have to give up the FFFF, but no, it has it all. I'm not sure how this works. I have always liked the sound of my piano but since you worked on it, it has found a new, even more beautiful voice. It SINGS! I could not be happier with it and have already suggested to two of my friends who either need new pianos or serious work done on their existing pianos that you are the ones to do it."

"Our guest concert pianist (who played on July 16th,2011) loved, loved, loved, our Fandrich & Sons piano - he said it was the 'Rolls Royce of pianos'. This man happens to also work for a piano company as the Director of Music Education, and has played concerts all over the world on grand pianos of all makes. He absolutely enjoyed every minute playing our piano. Heartfelt thanks to you, Darrell, and your company for making such high quality instruments."

"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."
