Flannel Piano

A Broadwood & Sons upright piano, in it's final hours, felted with flannels...

The story

Before its spectacular finale, the “Gimp” piano was treated (or mistreated?) with a set of flannels to bring out its inner warmth. The results are something quite magical. Apply some “splosh” to add even more drama!

  • A wonderful last breath

    Right before its destruction, it left us a small bit of its character, something that will be with us forever. This little package contains 3 single patches, featuring a different microphone each, just like The Gimp piano. In a similar fashion, I have mixed feelings about the 4006 because it is too noisy for my taste. The other two mics though are fantastic, and this time I prefer the U67 more. The GUI is very similar to what Christian instruments usually offer and I love it - except the fact that it should be a little darker with less contrast because the white knobs blend too much with it.

  • Warm and beautiful, at home sounding piano

    It has such a warmth in the sound itself. With this texture, I have layered three available patches 4006/R88/U67 and played them together, then it gives such wonderful layers of sound! It is a lot of fun to play with!

  • If you like 'The Gimp' piano, you'll love it with flannel on.

    Whilst a lot of the character of 'The Gimp' is taken away from the use of flannel on the strings, what it's doing is bringing out a completely different character, adding a whole other side to the piano. Now the soft inner voice of the instrument is front and centre and the result is marvellous.
