PIANO RECORDING STUDIO 

 

 

Record wonderful piano sessions with our Yamaha C-3 Grand piano

 

Professional Grand Piano Recordings in London

 

The challenges of recording a Grand Piano are well known by both pianists and sound engineers. The richness and depth of this percussive and melodious instrument propose the most difficult challenges at the time of capturing its full charm.

 

Being a concert pianist myself helps me having a clear perspective on what we all expect from a successful piano recording.

Yamaha C3 Grand

 

The studio is equipped with a new Yamaha C3 grand piano. Benefiting from improvements in both resonance and expressive control, C series grand are the product of Yamaha's commitment to detail. The C3 is able to meet the requirements of almost any performer.

 

Transparent reverberation and lush harmonics enable the C3 to fulfil the stringent requirements of the professional performer for fine expressive control.

Recording equipment

 

The main layer of our recordings are made using AUDIX SC25A Microphones, recognised as one of the most successful piano recording units in the world.

They are used by famous artists such as “The Piano Guys” because they guarantee a warm but deep sound, maybe the most difficult quality to achieve in a piano recording.

 

For the ambience, we use Behringer and ZOOM microphones. Juan Rezzuto is a professional post-graduate composer and he is in charge of the mastering services. We also count with the advise and help of our sound engineers.

A huge thank you to Juan for the recording session today. It's the second time I've recorded with Juan and both times I've been very pleased with the results. Excellent piano / sound quality and a very enjoyable experience speaking with Juan and working with him through mastering. Juan is very patient and absolutely wants to get the best for your recording. Thanks Juan, see you again soon.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to Juan and his team at WKMT for helping me make a wonderful recording of Chopin last Friday: Their Yamaha piano is flawless with a beautiful, clear tone and the tuning was impeccable. The microphones are of the highest quality too, and the end result was well-balanced, dynamic and very natural-sounding - I was absolutely thrilled! WKMT can certainly compete with many of the other classical recording studios in London (and their prices are very reasonable too). Juan, with his friendly and relaxed, but extremely professional disposition, created the perfect recording environment, and he is always on hand, if you need any technical help, advice or artistic inspiration. Take note pianists: if you need a recording for an audition, competition entry or showcase, this should be your first port of call in West London - I cannot recommend them highly enough!
