"I played a few phrases and I said to myself 'This piano is my friend.' You can put sounds together like a string of pearls. You can make it whisper or play as hard as you want and it won't disintegrate on you. If you're interested in buying a piano, don't forget about this one!"

-- Dave Frishberg
performing on the 7' Fandrich & Sons grand piano at the jazz party, 'Jazz at the Inn at Semi-ah-moo'.



"Last Sunday morning while seated at the Fandrich & Sons grand piano which you crafted for our church, I rendered one of the most sublime performances of Cesar Franck's Panis Angelicus in the history of the world! I was deeply moved in the midst of this beautiful musical prayer to realize that it was not just me making such a beautiful sound...every one of you who touched that fine instrument in its conception and fabrication had a hand in that particular piece of music last Sunday....You were not there to witness the hush and the grandeur of the moment....But I must say 'thank you' many times over for the pride and brilliance you put into your work."

-- Cass Seely
pianist at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church, regarding their Fandrich & Sons 213HGS (7'grand).



"I'm picky. Before I bought my Fandrich & Sons 7' foot grand piano, I played every instrument on the market. Yes, I make my money performing "Rock" music, but I was classically trained and still have the dream of making that last hard 10 percent to become a world class legitimate player. And I needed an instrument with the touch and dynamic range to take me there--an instrument expressive enough to play Chopin but still powerful enough to swing the blues. I chose the Fandrich piano over all the rest in the world, and she has not disappointed me."

Seattle pianist recently with New York Jimmy and the Jive Five on their national tour.



"This piano is easy to work with. It has a quality of being bright while at the same time being warm, like you usually only get with Steinways if they're done right."

-- John DiMartino
Pianist with Ray Barretto and Kenny Burrell with New World Spirit, at the Earshot Jazz Festival at Seattle's Town Hall.

"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."
