Home of the Fandrich Vertical Action that plays like a grand.

Every piano should be a joy to play for pianists of every skill level, but particularly for beginners.

A sure way to inspire the beginning player is to provide an instrument that is fun and rewarding to play. Having to struggle with a non-responsive action and unpleasant tone quickly dampens a beginner's enthusiasm, because the best efforts never seem musical.

It is natural to assume that a new piano of reputable make will be musical. In reality only the finest and most expensive pianos, mostly German and top-of-the-line Japanese, have well developed tonal designs and are actually completed at the factory to the extent that they can be played musically. Nonetheless, most less costly pianos are represented as having a great tone, a responsive action, etc., because less than 5% of piano sales involve experienced pianists who know a musical piano when they play one.

Most of the piano market consists of people who don't play much, if at all, buying for someone else, such as a child. They usually end up purchasing a piano that looks good, has a recognizable brand name and is bargain priced. The most common result is that the player, often a child, soon tires of the instrument, not realizing that their loss of enthusiasm is due to a poorly prepared and maintained piano that is not rewarding for anyone to play or listen to.

We at Fandrich & Sons love the piano and are committed to building moderately priced pianos that are musically comparable to the world's finest and most expensive instruments.

We promise that every piano we sell will be a joy to play.
Owning a Fandrich 6' grand since 2000 has been a wonderful experience, something much beyond what I was anticipating or expecting when I was originally in the market to buy a grand piano. Darrell, Heather, and the whole family have supported my piano and my enjoyment of it in so many ways, including tuning, voicing, humidity control, and regulation. Over the years, I've learned much about pianos, shared musical stories, and most of all come to know some absolutely wonderful people, who I would recommend readily to anyone looking for a quality piano. Seeing son Steffen develop his own top-flight technical skills in servicing pianos, combined with the same personable sensitivity to the customer and their concerns is very reassuring that the Fandrich brand and reputation will be carried on in the next generation. It's hard to imagine anything else once you've become a member of the Fandrich customer family.

You guys are really terrific, Darrell. Thanks for providing such a great experience over the years.
