"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.

"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."
