Regarding her very first time playing her new Fandrich & Sons Model 165 (5'5") grand, ordered sight unseen:

"It plays beautifully...I will admit a goofy thing I did when I very first played it...I played a few low chords and the bass was so rich I actually looked underneath the piano. I think I was just saying to myself, "WHERE THE HELL DID THAT COME FROM?" That was pretty silly. What was I expecting to find? A subwoofer? I'm so fortunate to have found a wonderfully playable piano. Now if only I could do it justice.

"Our new piano [Model 126V] is a joy!!!! We play at least 2 hours a day between the two of us and it is now the biggest part of our lives! I can't tell you how happy we are with this beautiful instrument!! It has changed our lives!"

Regarding the Model 185:

"Thank you for allowing me to use your Fandrich & Sons piano on my latest Jazz Trio CD recording. Your piano has everything a classically trained artist would want: a quick and fluid action; beautiful, singing tone, yet powerfully bold when called upon. The action doesn't control me - I control it. It's heaby enough to respond but light enought that you can execute. It plays itself! You're getting the sweet part of each tone at all volume levels, like the piano is an extension of my brain. To this point it is one of the finest pianos I have ever played. Thanks for all your hard work!"

"The piano is sounding better than any other piano we've heard recently in its size range. My son recently played at a recital on a well maintained 7' Kawai, and I'd say the 6'1" Fandrich & Sons is at least its equal tone-wise."

"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."
