S.K.Y. Felt Piano

An intimate Yamaha Upright...

The story

My father is a professional keyboard player. He has toured the world with artists like Steely Dan, Sting, Jackson Browne, and Alanis Moressette. He was never into gear, never thought a decent piano was worth the price.

A wealthy friend of my mother had a nice Yamaha upright piano that wasn’t being used (neither was her steinway grand) and very kindly leant it to my family. When staying with my family last year I discovered how great it sounded with the celeste pedal down. I decided to mic it up and record samples in the middle of the night while everyone was asleep and quiet in the small house. I use these samples frequently and they never disappoint.

  • Warm sound but without velocity layers?

    Fine sounding felt piano but lacks inspirational heft due to single velocity samples? More than ok but un-remarkable.
