"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."
