I hope you all are doing well and a very happy new year to you all.
I've been looking to buy an upright piano for my recordings for couple of years now.
I live in Mumbai, India and people here don’t own pianos that much. And getting new piano wasn’t an option for me. And I ended up composing all my music with Kontakt libraries. Which is not at all my preferable choice.
I finally found 2-3 listings on marketplace website. They all are old uprights. I’m going to hire a piano technician to go with me to see and inspect the pianos. I’m pretty sure that the guy wouldn’t be sure about how felted piano music sounds because people here are not really familiar with the music we make. But before that I wanted to ask you guys, will any upright will work to get that felted piano sound? What kind of felt I need to install? What microphones I need?
Any help would be appreciated. I'm attaching the links for the listings so you guys can also see the pictures.
