Tools for Piano Technicians

Fandrich Rhodes Weight Bench™ Touchweight System

We've developed the Fandrich Rhodes Weight Bench™ Touchweight System for professional static and dynamic touch correction and adjustment. Piano technicians worldwide use this system to create the Touch To Die For (TTDF) that we teach in our seminars. We produce these in batches to meet demand, so supplies can be limited.

Parts by Wessel Nickel Gross

We have received several inquiries about the Wessell Nickel Gross upright action parts that are represented as "Fandrich action ready". These Wessell Nickel Gross parts are an attempt to copy pieces from the original patent of the Fandrich Vertical Action™. They are not compatible with the original patent parts, or our newly designed and patented parts. There are also a number of other parts required to complete the Fandrich Vertical Action™ that are not offered by Wessell Nickel Gross. Any action using their parts connot be referred to as a Fandrich Vertical Action™.
"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."
