Overview of The Drinking Piano:
The Drinking Piano is a heavy-bottomed monster with a classic pub sound that evokes memories of the roaring ’20s and pre-war ’30s. It has all the brutal wear and tear that you would expect from a hundred-year-old instrument that has not only been played hard, but has been played with everything else.
With a fat, wide and close sound, it puts you right on the bench with yellow cracked ivory underneath. with your fingers. It was recorded directly in front of the strings in a small, slightly reflective room, giving it the feel of a dry studio recording with just a hint of a live atmosphere.
Years of alcohol abuse have not been kind to this once majestic instrument. With worn and wobbly key mechanisms, unreliable dampers, loose pedal mechanics, worn hardened felt, accidental hammer movement and decades of dried dust, each key has the character and fragility of a century-old bartender. The strings were too corroded to be tuned without risk of breakage and further internal damage, so the whole thing is just over a semitone.
