"I played a few phrases and I said to myself 'This piano is my friend.' You can put sounds together like a string of pearls. You can make it whisper or play as hard as you want and it won't disintegrate on you. If you're interested in buying a piano, don't forget about this one!"

-- Dave Frishberg
performing on the 7' Fandrich & Sons grand piano at the jazz party, 'Jazz at the Inn at Semi-ah-moo'.



"Last Sunday morning while seated at the Fandrich & Sons grand piano which you crafted for our church, I rendered one of the most sublime performances of Cesar Franck's Panis Angelicus in the history of the world! I was deeply moved in the midst of this beautiful musical prayer to realize that it was not just me making such a beautiful sound...every one of you who touched that fine instrument in its conception and fabrication had a hand in that particular piece of music last Sunday....You were not there to witness the hush and the grandeur of the moment....But I must say 'thank you' many times over for the pride and brilliance you put into your work."

-- Cass Seely
pianist at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church, regarding their Fandrich & Sons 213HGS (7'grand).



"I'm picky. Before I bought my Fandrich & Sons 7' foot grand piano, I played every instrument on the market. Yes, I make my money performing "Rock" music, but I was classically trained and still have the dream of making that last hard 10 percent to become a world class legitimate player. And I needed an instrument with the touch and dynamic range to take me there--an instrument expressive enough to play Chopin but still powerful enough to swing the blues. I chose the Fandrich piano over all the rest in the world, and she has not disappointed me."

Seattle pianist recently with New York Jimmy and the Jive Five on their national tour.



"This piano is easy to work with. It has a quality of being bright while at the same time being warm, like you usually only get with Steinways if they're done right."

-- John DiMartino
Pianist with Ray Barretto and Kenny Burrell with New World Spirit, at the Earshot Jazz Festival at Seattle's Town Hall.

"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."
