A beautiful Yamaha C6 Conservatory piano was chosen for the Modern Grand. This particular model stood out as having a balanced tone that would stand strong as a solo instrument while also being punchy enough to sit well in a mix.
This 52" upright piano is a standard instrument in studios all over the world. This model we sampled is one of the few with extra radial bracing providing an even richer sound. We love the character and extremely even response to this beauty.
How this 1890 Schaff Brothers "Tom Thumb'' piano made its way from the factory in Huntington Indiana to Venice California we may never know. But what we do know is the vibe is real! We selected this instrument strictly for it's amazing character.
