"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."

-- Ray Montgomery
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.

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!"
