"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."

"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."

"As a teacher, I couldn't ask for a better piano. It is very easy to make this piano express what you want. The action is light and easy, which for a beginner is wonderful, they can easily experience dynamic differences. A friend playing my piano for the first time couldn't believe how 'different' my piano was from his. He said, 'You can tell that there's nothing wasted. Playing it was like slicing butter.' He hadn't realized there was such a difference in pianos."

"The Fandrich upright, with its Grand Action, is really terrific. In time, I hope that all uprights will have the same action. The grands are an excellent value. I have recommended the Fandrich pianos to many of my students."

"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."
