10 Stunning Instruments

Modern Grand

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.

Included in: Hammers + Waves - Acoustic

UX Upright

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.

Relic Upright

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.

Suitcase 73

Rebuilt from the ground up by Los Angeles' most legendary technician, this Rhodes is a force to be reckoned with. Precision deep sampled in every detail, Hammers + Waves stunningly recreates this absolutely perfect example of what these instruments are capable of.

Included in: Hammers + Waves - Electric

EP 200A

We've played a LOT of 200A's over the years but this one is special. Plucked from a pawn shop in Seattle while on the road with Ricky Lee Jones, this instrument has that inexplicable thing that makes you want to just keep playing and playing.

Obscura Grand

A delicate strip of felt was woven between the hammers and strings of our C6 Conservatory Grand for this stirring instrument. 16 velocities were sampled in a softer dynamic range to give maximum resolution where it matters. Blend between the focused sound above the strings and the darker tones underneath the piano.

Muted Relic

As composers, the skybox team is always searching for unique and disruptive sounds. This instrument was made from our beloved 1890 Schaff Brothers upright. We treated the strings with a thick coating of gaffer tape to create a plucky tone that's a fresh and inventive substitute for your old pizzicato patch.

Pulled from a dilapidated house in Beverly Hills, this Dulcitone was painstakingly rebuilt to its historical glory. We captured this beautifully charming instrument with all it's quirks intact for an incredibly authentic playing experience.

Available in: Hammers + Waves - Chime

J Celeste

A vintage 1950s tabletop celeste was selected for this instrument. Before we sampled a note, we had the action of this little beauty completely rebuilt by a master technician. The result is possibly the most even response ever for an instrument of this kind.

J Toy Piano

Maybe the most detailed toy piano sample ever created, we gave this classic sound the full treatment. The model we decided on has the sweetest tone of the many we tested.
