My most loved analog vintage gear. My Yamaha U1. It was bought by my grandmother back in 1970s. My mum was practicing piano on it when she was a kid.
Since then has it been parked to a wall in my grandmother’s house for decades. I remember as a kid, we were not allowed to touch the piano. I inherited it after graduating from the Oslo National Academy of The Arts.

The piano is in perfect working condition. I decided to sample it before I got it tuned. I did sample it with 3-layers, all the white keys (52 samples).
I want you to check out my softest patch (1-layer) without felt, because it really brings out feelings (for me, and I hope you too) when playing it.
I used high quality microphones trough vintage preamps and high quality RME converters.
