"I'm writing this message to thank you for taking the time to show me your excellent pianos. I've visited several piano stores in Seattle and the Eastside, and I've tried some of the finest instruments in the world, so it was a pleasant surprise to find pianos that I thought were at least their equal at a small family business nearby. Your marvelous upright [Model 126V] made the greatest impression of all, because I had thought it impossible to buy an upright without considering it some sort of unpleasant compromise. Your upright, on the other hand, was as responsive, if not more so, than other instruments I have tried and the tone was clear and refined. Coupled with the quality of your work my belief in dealing with local people who provide excellent service, and the result is my sincere hope that in the not too distant future you will be able to count me among your satisfied customers. Thanks again for showing me such musical pianos."

"I can safely say I've never enjoyed playing a piano more. This is the best sounding piano I have ever heard."

"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."

"Your vertical action upright is absolutely amazing! It has a touch and tone that rivals some of the best grands I've played. I own a Fandrich and Sons 5'9" grand piano and love it, but I must admit that at first I was skeptical that any upright could play like a grand. But after playing on your upright for two weeks in Seattle last December, I became a believer. I've been telling my friends in New York about your pianos ever since I came back. You'd better buy one of these pianos while you can still afford to!"

"I have played many pianos over the past half century and consider myself an expert in judging the quality of the instrument, both the action and of course the sound. The Fandrich & Sons pianos I heard and played during our recent visit were beautiful instruments. One expected the grands of course to be able to produce a big, beautiful sound and they did indeed. But I was nearly knocked off my feet when I heard what the Fandrich & Sons upright pianos could do. In the past the only upright I ever heard which was halfway decent was the old Steinway upright. But it was nothing compared to your uprights. I wouldn't have ever believed that an upright could sound like a grand but as the saying goes... 'Seeing is believing' or in this case 'Hearing is believing'. This should prove a blessing to those who need the sound and performance of a grand but whose limitations of space make it impossible to own one. I add my congratulations to those of many others."
