Bechstein C118

Bechstein C118


I usually play plugin instruments with my 88 keys master keyboard…but something was missing. One day, I decided to visit a piano store and I had no idea about real pianos. There was about a hundred of different models exposed. The vendor was kind enough to let me try any pianos freely in the different space and rooms during a whole afternoon.

Suddenly I felt in love with the sound of a second hand C.Bechstein C118 built in 2010. My ignorance shocked the vendor because I had no idea about the piano brand C.Bechstein. I also truly love the sound of this felt piano sound. I tried to record this sound for you with a pair of AKG 414.

There are only one layer of sounds and a release noise. for a first experience of sampling, the result was a good surprise in Kontakt: not only it sounds quite interesting but it matches so well when layered with another spitfire library : British Drama Toolkit -especially with the patch Strings Ensemble Long-.




Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
