FULLY RESTORED PIANOS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

 

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of hearing Chicago vocal/piano slayer Megan Stagl @stagsbagel doing a few tunes on our customized Yamaha CP-80. Now you’ve got the pleasure of hearing her too, with an excerpt from her performance of Chick Corea’s “Spain”. 🐣🇪🇸

This piano was customized and overhauled to round out the @ryanlewis collection, which also included a custom Wurlitzer, Suitcase Rhodes, and a Vox Jaguar from us. With custom painted bronze hardware and legs, forest green tolex, and a bronzed plexiglass top and bottom, this was cosmetically one of our most involved projects, but we think it was well worth the work. We hope you do too!

🌖The “Death Star” piano is taking flight! 🌒

Here’s @matt.blocher with a stellar performance of Stevie Wonder’s “Golden Lady”, from his 1973 ‘Innervisions’ album. Stevie produced for other artists under the name “El Toro Negro”, and although we’ve been calling this piano “The Death Star”, we think “El Toro Negro” is also a fitting nickname for this Black Bull of a piano. 🐂🎹

While Stevie Wonder may be more associated with the Yamaha CS-80 Synthesizer, we think his songs sound great on a Yamaha CP-80 too! This intro in particular is well suited for an 88 key piano, so we’ve been excited to do a version of this song for some time. 

This late 70’s Yamaha piano underwent a complete mechanical and electronic overhaul from us, then we built the custom plexiglass top and bottom panels, as well as a matching music rack. We’re over the moon, and into a land far far away with this piano. 🛸
