This Piano was recorded at Goldsmith Music Studios, London where a study a part-time masters course. The tone conveys a palm muted technique, that is lightly applied in order to allow the piano strings to resonate- causing a harp-like timbre.
Recorded with two U-87s (Stereo) and a Coles (Ribbon) placed in the centre.

Simple and clear, easy to use harp sound
Clearly captured, simple sound of harp. It is ribbon/stereo/room controllable and it gives a nice room ambience when it is on. I get nostalgic hearing the sound :
A fantastic take on a Piano!
Even though it's not as dynamic as a typical piano instrument, this offers a very nice and unique perspective, and with a very interesting sound as well. It might be a little noisy in some cases, noticed more in the higher register, but still it's quite enjoyable to play and it's totally worth your interest!
Great stuff as always from Angus
Once again Angus has given us an amazing instrument. Simple idea and well recorded, this library will provide you with a muted-plucked piano sound with options over the mic/room controls. I thought some samples sounded a little noisy at first but realised this is actually the some of the strings just resonating slightly different to others. The result humanises this instrument. Nice work!
Palm Mutes to your Heart
This beautiful library is transportation to a new realm of sonic exploration! There are a few zones which have kind of "Squishy" attacks on one of the round robins --E3 is an example, and others like B3 where a bit of buzzing crept in, but overall, I found this library playable and satisfyingly pleasant. I'm anticipating pairing it with my favorite delay. Even just experiencing it with the default reverb, it's a gratifying sound!
Quite unique sound
My ears are bamboozled by this instrument, for me it sounds like a fusion between a harp and pizz strings. Really different and unique!
