anstatt selber über den mehr als hundertjährigen bechstein flügel am pool zu palavern mache ich es mir einfach und zitiere dazu cambridge audio, entnommen aus ihrem spannenden blog über "great british recording studios":
"... we’d look at the studio chosen for numerous recordings by bowie, queen, genesis and many more - trident studios. tucked away in the heart of soho, trident was known for much more than the famous names that passed through.
trident studios key equipment:
a feature synonymous with the studio is the trident piano, a handmade bechstein grand piano over 100 years old often described as “the best rock and roll piano ever”. It was rented to the studio for over 20 years by the london music shop samuels and was eventually bought by them in 1986. It was notoriously difficult to play because of its stiff hammers, meaning that they player had to really hit the keys to get something out of it. despite this notoriety, the bright and crystal clear sound it delivered attracted loads of musicians and the piano now has a huge list of songs and albums including david bowie's albums, "space oddity", "hunky dory", "ziggy stardust" and "aladdin sane", queen's albums "queen", "queen II" and "sheer heart attack" and elton john's "goodbye yellow brick road", "blue moves" and "a single man" albums."
um transparent zu sein: der pool flügel in zürich ist um ungefähr 4 - 5 scones weniger lang als derjenige in london.
dafür erinnert hier aufgrund der location der duft und die funktionale "innenarchitektur" der bude deutlich mehr ans coole schulschwimmen als ans russgeschwängerte milieu der brit-metropole. rock'n'roll ist beides irgendwie...
tipp von cambridge audio: "if you want to dig a little deeper into tridents history, check out the video interview we found with trident sound engineer adam moseley on his time at the studio in it's heyday. definitely worth a watch!"
