  • The preparation and choice of the pianos we start with comes from our 60 years of experience servicing new pianos, designing and building our own upright piano action (FVA™) and rebuilding all types of pianos to include Steinway, Mason and Hamlin and high end pianos from all of the European manufacturers. We incorporate all of the procedures critical for an inspiring playing experience. These include voicing, tuning stabilization, proper pedal and damper adjustment/regulation, proper action regulation and creating a Touch To Die For using our Fandrich-Rhodes Weight Bench System™. The average total time we put into the preparation of our new grands is a minimum of 50 hours.
"The first time I played on your piano with the new [FVA] action, I found it an amazing experience - it was difficult to believe I was not playing on a grand piano. I could see that I was sitting in front of an upright instrument, but the sensitivity to the touch and its capability of giving many degrees of shading and tone coloring were astonishing. Even grand pianos, unless they are the finest, do not respond with the gradations of tone that this upright can give. Recalling the poor pianos often found in practice rooms throughout many music schools and colleges, I cannot help thinking what a boon this piano would be to many aspiring young musicians. In homes also, this piano will greatly help student pianists to develop sensitivity to tone and touch. If a student has a good piano which responds to the various types of touch, gives different tone colors, and lets him know when he has gotten the touch right, he is going to develop greater control and skill in less time. I feel this invention will prove a blessing to all students and their teachers."
