Many prominent colleges have our pianos
Manhattan Piano Store
I recently purchased a 2003 Steinway, Model B. Previously I had tested two new Steinway Bs and a used one which all sounded and performed pretty much the same. The piano that I bought from Faust-Harrison is in a league of it's own. Both the sound and the action are extraordinary due to the Faust technicians, far surpassing the sound of the two new pianos . A major advantage that Faust has over other stores, I have visited ,is that their salespeople are musicians. Sara , whom I dealt with, is a former concert pianist and that experience is an invaluable asset in guiding her customers to the right piano for them.
I purchased a piano from Faust Harrison as a birthday gift to my daughter and we both couldn't be more pleased. The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable, helping me to make the best selection. The piano I purchased was very high quality and beautiful. My daughter was ecstatic when they delivered it to our home and has played it almost every day since.
Great store. Excellent selection for a relatively small store. Very friendly staff. We dealt with Dimitri Shelest. Very pleasant, knowledgeable and professional.
Great experience! We were truly impressed with the beautiful show room and more importantly the honesty and service.
Best pianos, super interesting salesman, warm atmosphere and best selection in the city

My wife and I are very pleased with our experience at Faust Harrison. Dean was a great help. He quickly understood our desires and directed us to several of the many pianos on the showroom floor. He patiently allowed privacy as we spent several hours going back and forth, narrowing down our choices. He graciously assisted when we asked him to play several different styles of music on each of our options. Ultimately, Dean didn't sell us anything. He helped us buy a wonderful piano. We highly recommend Faust Harrison and Dean. Lynn and Lesley Hart
Dean was superb in my experience in the store. He is amazing and knows what he talks when talking about piano. The whole store personnel was very polite. Im very satisfied with my purchase.
Both Dean and Chris at Faust Pianos facilitated my purchase of an Altenburg Grand Piano.
Dean was tireless with his efforts to educate me about pianos and for suggesting I try the many pianos I played. His knowledge showed even more when I toured their factory.....what an education! Also, I was able to hear the pianos I was considering from a different perspective because he is an excellent performer, too, and shared his gift of music when I asked him to play.
Chris made practical suggestions regarding the business end of the transaction. Adjustments were made and he accommodated my requests, which included moving an additional piano and disposing of an old piano, and the deal was made!
Both of these guys are professionals and classy! I was never pressured, was allowed time to think, play pianos, and come back as necessary before making a decision. They were able to answer all my questions and put to rest any concerns I had.
As a side note, I had visited their Connecticut showroom a while ago and the experience was similar,
all time well spent.
The delivery went as scheduled and was flawless.
A 5 star rating doesn't tell the full story.....this is an excellent piano company !
I had an outstanding experience working with Sara at Faust Piano. I really appreciate her expertise in helping me identify the just right piano for me- my new Mason Hamlin A.
I suspect that I am a more complicated buyer than most who come into their store. As a professional musician on a different instrument, my sensitivity to subtle tonal and other variables in a piano is out of balance with my actual ability to create nuance and color through my own technique. For me, I needed to find a high end piano that could deliver more than its fair share in our musical partnership to be fully satisfied.
I was impressed by her ability to bring me through the process. She gave me all of the time I needed to explore the showroom, test pianos, be comfortable, relaxed, and never self-conscious. Once I was able to articulate my tonal preferences more fully, she expertly guided me through your showroom and identified the pianos on the floor that were most likely to delivery what I needed and within my budget.
As a celebrated international pianist with a rich history of great music making, her piano demonstrations gave me a rare insight into the true nature of the instruments we sampled, unencumbered by my own technical and musical challenges. Her ability to then step back, and match our finalists to my own playing style and personality that she observed provided me with all of the information I needed to make the perfect selection. Purchasing a piano can be a daunting experience, but she made it magical.
Hope you are having a good start into the new year 2017, My parents from Taiwan and our family friends in New York visits you and had a conversation with you about purchasing the piano materials from your factory last summer when we were in New York. And I'm Ya-Hsin, their daughter who was also there.
'Twas very nice meeting you at your beautiful factory and I've fond memories of everything and myself playing the pianos in your factory. It's a wonderful and exciting experience for my parents and me.
( At this moment, I feel like giving an answere to your question about how I thought about one of the pianos I had played in your factory. )
...this is how it was, I simply favored the one I tested just before the time you appeared before us.
One of the many things that came to my mind when testing that beautiful sounding piano with one of those preludes by Debussy was a little bit like what happens during the final scene of the story in which the glass slippers, after being tried by many, finally found their owner. While In this case, it is the piece found its owner!
And I just felt the instrument itself had magically possessed the capabilities and sensitivity to understand the minds of human beings... Also, by the nature of this piano itself, no matter it's about the sound, the technique or the ideas from the performer, which could all be carried out so well, finely and so closely similar ( almost the same ) to that of what I, as a educatee of piano literature, intended to achieve.
It left me speechless and stunned by the magic of it during and after the whole piano-testing process. ( I couldn't even utter any sound right after being asked about how I liked the piano.. ,as you had seen. )
...And I just felt that your company has done something which is very meaningful, and very encouraging from all aspects for a piano student like me. I was like how incredible it is that Mrs Sarah Faust, who's not only a pianist but also the founder of the company, came up with everything, all of these incredible ideas to collect and rebuild the Steinway's Golden Era pianos, etc.
And after checking the informations on the website, I knew why and how.
I'm a big fan of her, all the craftsmen and all the technicians, out of all honesty!
Also, We appreciate your explaining and everything you had done the day we visited. I really really like you.. :)))
Wishing you and every member of FaustHarrisonPianos a happy and successful new year!

Sam, I want to personally thank you for bending over backwards to make the experience of buying my first Steinway flawless. You were so patient and willing to take your time to answer the onslaught of questions I had. You guided me with your answers to choose the piano that is a perfect fit. It arrived yesterday and the movers could not have been more professional. They had the piano set up and playable in a minimal amount of time. My only regret is that this piano will hopefully last me a lifetime and that means I won't be able to interact with such a fine organization as Faust Harrison Pianos again. You made this experience one that I will remember forever. Thank you for helping me make a lifelong dream come true! Faust Harrison Pianos is a class act and I would highly recommend your organization to anyone who is searching to buy that perfect piano.....I cannot thank you enough! Your personal touch made all the difference! Thank you so much!
Hi Sam and Irving,
Domingo’s Steinway was hoisted into the building last Thursday morning, and after letting it rest for a few days, our tuner set to work on it this afternoon. When he finished, I had the pleasure of playing it and it sounds absolutely incredibly. Thank you both so much for your guidance and counsel throughout the entire restoration process. It has been an absolute pleasure working with both you and I am so happy we went the route that we did with restoring it. I can’t wait for this instrument to be enjoyed by many for years to come. Please pass our thanks on to anyone who had a hand in its restoration.

PLEASE READ TO THE END!
The most unprofessional place I have ever dealt with. They double booked us on the day of our recital where I had 300 people coming. They told us a half hour before guests were set to arrive. When I told them I even called the week before to confirm, I basically got "oh well, mistakes happen". They were very rude and had a lot of people very disappointed. Thank God for Frank and Camille's down the street, who felt so bad for us that they agreed to stay open late to accommodate us and the kids got their day on the stage!
Although all this really happened, the CEO of this company has taken full responsibility for the mistake that occurred and has done everything in his power to make it right. I have to take my hat off to a company like this that stands behind everything , even if they make a mistake. Josh Faust is a stand up guy and after his actions I wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future! There are not many people like this left out there and he is one I want to do business with!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. I couldn't be happier with my beautiful piano and bench! You have been an absolutely pleasure to work with, and I will definitely refer anyone interested in purchasing a piano to you.
We are way overdue but still sending warmest, most wonderful thanks for your kind, caring, personalized expertise on the purchase of our 2 beautiful baby grands.
You assisted in every aspect of our decision and purchase, follow up and questions.
You were terrific and we will forever be indebted. We love our instruments!

Had a very good experience purchasing a great used Baldwin within my limited budget .Steve gave me plenty of time and space to play different pianos and didn't push or hover. He is familiar with the piano market today and was happy to discuss all the aspects that make purchasing a piano so challenging without too much agenda - reputation, quality, longevity, perception, ability level, etc..
Wonderful experience buying our first piano. Steve was knowledgeable, patient and very informative. He knew his pianos. I would highly recommend coming here whether you are an experienced pianist or a beginner.
Our experience with Steve was beyond amazing. He was so helpful and thoughtful with us throughout the entire process in picking up the perfect piano.
Erica is simply amazing. She helped us pick the perfect piano for our family based on her ears and eyes, and she is a wonderful resource for piano teachers in the area. She is incredibly knowledgeable about pianos and piano playing given her background. She delivers truly personalized service. Highly recommended!
Faust Harrison in Fairfield has a broad selection of different brands and styles of new and used pianos on site. We were upgrading from an upright to a grand, and Erica was very helpful and patient as we went through a compare-and-contrast process to find the right piano for our family. It was also an education for us, and we appreciated that Erica made sure that we had the information we needed to make an informed decision. With Erica’s help, we were pretty sure which piano we preferred after our first visit, but we appreciated that there was no pressure while we took our time to do our homework before making our final decision. Erica was a value-add to our decision process and was a pleasure to work with. No matter what you are looking for in a piano, we would highly recommend visiting Erica at Faust Harrison.
