"Leather...why do I think of a thick piece of rich brown leather when I play our Fandrich piano? Something about sinking into a chord, reaching the firm bottom of the keys, and feeling there's still...something THERE, some deeper resource of sound, some musical dimension I can still push into. We purchased our brushed mahoghany 6'1" piano over a year ago, and we've had it tuned several times. And now the strings have stretched, and it's settled in, and it's a wonder. You get the glistening sound with high scale runs, the clarity of the middle range, and the sense of falling off something when you hit big bass octaves. I haven't the exquisite ear that can tell a Baldwin from a Steinway, and those two from half a dozen other brands. I can only say that for the money, our piano can't be beat: in looks and sound, it projects itself like an instrument that is tens of thousands of dollars more expensive. Some friends of ours bought an elegant six and a half foot Steinway; it was grand for a while, but at its best--and it cost twice what ours did--it couldn't match what we've got. So...after a year and a half, no complaints. Much praise to Fandrich & Sons."
