"The Fandrich & Sons piano I played on a recent concert at the Seattle Art Museum really took me by surprise. I had not played one before and didn't know what to expect but I was pleased to find a wonderful instrument whose action was responsive and whose tone was warm and singing in all registers. As a performing jazz pianist I always enjoy playing, but often it is despite the instrument at hand. On this occasion it was because of the piano. I look forward to playing Fandrich & Sons pianos in the future."

"Fandrich & Sons pianos provide a significant range of tonal color and depth, while offering a wonderfully full, warm tone. They are affordable, superlative instruments of quality, with a remarkably balanced and beautiful singing cantabile voice. Touch is well defined yet responsive, yielding to the most subtle phrasing. I can recommend the Fandrich & Sons Pianos without reservation."

"I have always been very particular about what pianos my students are playing on. To be a good pianist you need a fine piano as your tool. Fandrich & Sons pianos are among the best I have ever played on. The touch and the tone are outstanding. I wish all my students could have one!."

"Concerning the Fandrich & Sons pianos I was deeply impressed with the quality and the sound produced by both grands and uprights. In particular I found it quite amazing that an upright piano could be made to sound like a mid-sized grand, which is exactly what Mr. Fandrich has been able to accomplish. This is certainly a ground breaking achievement when one considers also that the prices of the Fandrich & Sons pianos have remained extremely competitive and in many cases less even than some of those with well known brand names."

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!"
