The Pianos

Yamaha U5 (Modern Upright)
  • The U5 is the top of Yamaha's upright line, a line widely regarded as the best uprights being built today
  • Expertly tuned and regulated, it is a great piano for a modern pop, rock or jazz recording
  • Many musicians and producers love the way this upright sits in a mix and adds personality to the music
1914 A.M. Hume Upright (Vintage Upright)
  • A big, American-made upright from the "golden age" of piano building, Hume pianos are highly regarded by knowledgeable piano technicians for their excellent build quality and resonant sound
  • This instrument was chosen for its tremendous tone and its all original parts, which
  • Perfect for blues, rock, vintage jazz or roots music, and yet versatile enough for virtually any style of music
  • Outstanding as a solo instrument or in the mix
1915 Packard Upright (Honky Tonk, Barroom Upright)
  • Big, old American upright with all original parts, though this instrument has enjoyed a more "colorful" life than the Hume
  • Featuring an authentic barroom sound, this particular instrument was the house piano at the famous Cheers bar in Boston for many years
  • Custom detuned in the genuine "honky tonk" style, the piano features loads of smoky, scotch-and-soda character
Tack Piano
  • Genuine, early 1900's upright with real tacks in the hammers
  • Like the Barroom Upright, this piano is the real deal, not a synthetic emulation
  • Custom prepared for the recording session with metal tacks inserted into the hammer felts, and "not perfectly" tuned, this instrument is a turn of the century classic
  • An authentic sound that continues to be used in everything from traditional period and roots music, to classic pop and modern experimental rock
