"The Fandrich upright is nothing short of magnificent. My personal feelings are confirmed by two of my teachers: One, from Russia and classically trained, told me without a doubt it is the best touch of any upright piano she has ever played. The other, an excellent jazz player with 34 years experience, told me it had the best touch he had ever played also. He even joked that he'd pay me to come teach me on my piano if he could play for a few minutes after the lessons! I searched all the brands available today, and flew up to Darrell and Heather's studio in Stanwood, Washington for a test playing. I'm not a great player, but I was pretty serious about getting a quality instrument and wanted to check out what all the "Fandrich commotion" was about. Since ordering the piano, they have been to my house twice to check up on it and tune it for me. Imagine that! It was like having Steinway himself come to my home to make sure my piano met his expectations! Their attentiveness to their product has really been unparalleled, and I believe Darrell is a living technical genius. Nice people, too."
