STEINWAY RECORDING - PIANO STUDIO

 
 

Steinway Recording is a purpose built recording facility featuring a pristine Steinway model B grand piano. Using top quality microphones, preamps and software we deliver top quality solo and ensemble recording at an extremely competitive price.


Located in Fulbeck, near Grantham, on the Lincolnshire / Nottinghamshire border we engineer, produce and master recordings for visiting musicians and can extend this to remote sessions conducted entirely over the internet. With excellent ATC monitoring and industry standard processing we also mix and master outside projects ready for production and release.


For recording piano there is nothing more inspiring than the real thing and when it is a Steinway piano there is nothing better. The Steinway piano has become the standard by which others are judged with its uncompromising sound and perfect touch.


The instrument is a perfect Steinway model B (6’11” / 211 cm) number 579089 acquired new from Steinway in 2007. This piano was selected from several model Bs in Steinway Hall, London for its balance of tone across the whole range. The action was immediately re-pinned, set up and regulated by the renowned Steinway technician Jeff Prett - a standard procedure for these world class pianos to ensure an absolute evenness of touch and tone for the pianist. Regular tuning, regulation and maintenance is carried out by Steinway trained technician Peter Roscoe.


The bespoke studio uses heat recovery fresh air ventilation to maintain an extremely stable temperature and humidity whereby fresh air is diffused within the studio and isolation areas through a bespoke air diffusion sock. This achieves draught free and silent ventilation - a very comfortable environment in which to perform and create.


We have plenty of room available for accommodation in our neighbouring farmhouse if required. Excellent local amenities include a wonderful cafe and The Hare & Hounds pub within a few hundred metres of the studio.
