Weber Baby Grand Piano

1950's Weber Baby Grand....

The story

My mother is a pianist, and this piano belonged to her. It was purchased when she was a teenager in the 1950s, and it stayed in our family until just recently. A few summers ago, my mother was moving from Boston to Florida and didn’t have room in her new place for the beloved instrument. She offered it to me, but I didn’t have space either. After much heartache, she finally decided to give it away to charity. Before she did, I thought it would be nice to sample it so that we could have a memory of the way it sounded.

  • How lovely!

    When I am ready to play a piano, I somehow "default" myself to playing the very generic upright that you will find at your friends house. This one is nothing like that, and I love it! The character that shares is undescribable with plain old words. It needs your fingertips to let you know what it can do. It is sampled really well, with the small exception on the high velocity samples who carry some noise. The dynamics though are absolutely fabulous! And what makes it even better is the very well implemented arperggiator, which quite surprisingly works perfectly well! - trust me I've seen way too many and only a handful work properly. Kudos to David for sharing such an amazing patch!

    What I love about pianobook is being transported to other peoples homes, playing them playing their instrument. This is just one of those transporting packs. A piano is like a bottle of wine, it will sound different today compared to yesterday and will sound different tomorrow. Because its been played, because it hasn't been played, because its slightly warmer or wetter than yesterday or tomorrow. It bears the sonic fingerprints on all that have played her. A wonderful family sounding piano showing its age but like any fine vintage wine, a little age adds so much interest. Really playable, great sound, can hear the room, a piano that has fruity tuning but no way a pub piano!

  • Superbly sampled with a rich dynamic range

    A 'lived in' old upright sound that I shall definitely use within my compositions. It has weight and dynamism at the bottom and the top of it's range which can be lacking in sampled pianos. Sterling Job!
