"It's very rare that I write to any manufacturer after any purchase of any product. But this time I must just say thank you for my new Electro 4. It is simply marevellous, the best sounding instrument I ever had, a huge progress over the Electro 2 I have been using for years. Yesterday I was even more surprised when stepping through the Upright samples on the DVD. Thank you so much and say hello to everyone in your team who contributed to the E4."
- Matthias Walti
I would like to thank you for your Italian Grand piano download. It's a sound with a perfect balance that suits my style of playing. It gives me oppurtunities I hadn't before. Because it's so musical it adapts perfectly to the half-pedal action and it responds like a dream. I think, this Fazioli piano it's great and it's a keeper!
