A reputation for outstanding tone and action response.

Fandrich & Sons provides several choices for refinishing of your piano. We offer the traditional black finish in a hand rubbed satin lacquer and a clear finish in a hand rubbed satin lacquer. We can change your piano's current finish to a colored wood or black satin.

During the black lacquer process, the existing finish is stripped from the piano using a mild, non-destructive stripping method. Next, the piano case and parts are washed, dried, sanded and prepped. Any repair work is done at this time. We then apply a pore filler to reduce the amount of wood pores that may be visible in the finish. The filler is then sanded smooth and reapplied if necessary. Several coats of wood sealer are applied before the color coat. This is sanded smooth and will keep the color coat from being absorbed by the wood. Color coat is applied. The color coat is allowed to dry and is hand rubbed in a three step process to achieve a beautiful satin finish.

The clear lacquer process differs from the black only when applying the color. At Fandrich & Sons, we use uv resistant, non-grain raising stains in primary colors only (red, yellow, blue and black). This gives us the ability to match any natural wood color you choose for your piano's new finish. This color stage is applied after any needed repair work and before any sealer.

When a piano is constructed at the factory to have a black finish, the wood parts used are not always the same wood type. When changing these piano's to a wood finish, there may be some parts that contain varying grain patterns than that of the primary wood. On this type of piano, a darker stain color is recommended.

We realize that a complete refinish is outside the budget for some and we can provide excellent alternatives to bring back the beauty of your piano's existing finish. The options available to you will depend on the current condition of your piano's finish. Please contact us for more information.

"Fandrich & Sons continues its proven record of outstanding service to the northwest, both as the source of extraordinarily fine pianos as well as precision voicing, rebuilding, and refinishing, always promptly, and at extremely reasonable prices. Their patented Fandrich Vertical Action upright pianos are truly grand, and deserve a trip to their showroom in Stanwood to be heard. One of my adult students is the proud new owner of another of their offerings: a Bohemia Piano from the Czech Republic, an excellent value, with additional voicing by the Fandrichs routinely included. I highly recommend this valuable resource to anyone looking for an instrument, new or used, or seeking fine service for their own piano."
