"David Stanwood brings more than technological innovation to the piano. His action system takes any piano,
especially the great instruments of the world, into unchartered prodigious territory. I have owned a Bosendorfer
Imperial, Steinway D, and now a vintage Faust Harrison Steinway C. When Mr. Stanwood reconstructed its
action I was not prepared for the door he had opened to music making. The dynamics and sensitivity of the piano's
action are not only more responsive, the range of musical expression is significantly widened. Each key produces
a more desired tone that is in exquisite relationship with all the other sounded notes, chords have more unity and
simultaneous participation of each note, shifts in mood are facilitated rather than resisted, subtle micro differences
in musicality suddenly arise, macro clarity of intended variation are more readily accessed, and finally, there is an
immediate entry into the always sought flow experience where musical desire and created outcome take place as if
the fingers were in direct communication with the strings. Anyone wanting to go to the furthest limits of musicality
and performance can not afford to be without this groundbreaking contribution to the piano. I now refer to my
instrument as a "Stanwood-Steinway". It is more than a perfect piano - it is the best of the past and future of all pianos.
David Stanwood is a national treasure. Piano music has entered a new frontier of expression."
