Many prominent colleges have our pianos

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
When my 80 year old Baldwin upright lost low D flat sustaining ability, I knew I had to buy a new piano. And At 75, do I dare look for a rare jewel equivalent to the concert grand Bechstein I played recently at a college reunion? My tuner recommended Faust Harrison and they represent Bechstein. I made an appointment with Sara in White Plains and told her I wanted three qualities: rich low notes, clear bell-like high notes and to be able to play it softly. She said "yes". She pointed out 7 verticals in my price range, left me alone to play them. After 2 hours and a bit bewildered, I sat down at the Volkmar Rommel Bechstein and I said "yes". Out of my price range, but juggling my old age funds, I bought it.
My life has not been about making such a decision in 2 hours. Sara and the selections of pianos in White Plains made it happen.
I have been in heaven playing it night and day for the last three months.
Thank you, Sara.
FH just finished a complete rebuild of our 1907 Steinway, and the results are spectacular, even exceeding our expectations!
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.
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.

Sam was such a pleasure to work with. He is not your typical 'salesperson'; very genuine in nature, passionate about music and keeping music in schools, and his downstairs showroom also provides students an opportunity to perform their own recital.
Sam did a fantastic job of guiding me through a wealth of information about different pianos which helped me make a clear decision in my purchase.
From Sam to Jerry the tuner and the piano movers, it was a positive experience from start to finish.
I have already highly recommended Faust Harrison and will continue to do so.
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.

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.
