I’ve been working with Justin Elliott, a designer and piano technician in Florida. Justin has designed a set of legs that can be added to any piano. While they are beautiful and exceptionally well made, there is a surprise!! Go visit this video for an idea of what the surprise is.
It is one of those things that you really have to hear to believe, since piano legs are not given much thought as a tone affecting element. He calls the effect the Resinno effect
Justin showed his legs (I know, it’s funny, but let it go) in the DPA microphone booth at the Audio Engineering Convention in NYC last week. Big success. Shown here is the Royal Ebony set, consisting of 3 legs and custom designed pedal lyre, bench and music desk.
