So my big project lately has been to get decent recordings out of my piano. I've had mixed results and after exhaustively screwing around with my pre, my DAW, and various knobs and effects I've found my mic placement was probably holding me back.

What would be really helpful to me is if anyone knows of professional recordings made on NY B's that I could listen to so I can get a feel of what this instrument sounds like in the hands of a capable studio engineer. Pop, Rock, Classical, New Age, doesn't matter--I would love to hear them all.

Thanks!

I know, I started this thread months ago and got nothing so I'm fishing again.

Supposedly, Grieg's 1892 Steinway is a B. Andsnes recorded some of the lyric pieces on it ca. 2002. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0000...Pl=1&dpID=51cJEiS9D2L&ref=plSrch

You can find some recordings played on Steinway pianos at ArkivMusic.com (Steinway's record label). Disc 1 of this album is a B. According to the notes
Quote
Florence Delaage plays the personal piano belonging to Alfred Cortot. CD 1 was recorded in September 2009 on a Steinway model B #91814 built in 1896. In a perfect state, the piano has never been modified and strictly respects Cortot's adjustments.

Thanks everyone! Keep 'em coming, please. I am going to probably start a separate thread for recording stuff soon.
