Whip Records is home to a meticulously maintained Steinway Grand piano model L. It is without doubt one of the finest recording pianos available in any Bay Area studio. In 2005 E-MU systems recorded every note of this exceptional instrument to provide the sounds for their critically acclaimed Platinum 88 Grand Piano Sample Library.

         All action parts including hammers, wippens, shanks and flanges have been replaced with the finest quality German made Steinway parts. In 2020 all bass strings were replaced with the finest quality Steinway bass strings. The action and keyboard have been carefully weighted and balanced for precision touch.The Steinway is currently tuned and voiced to concert specifications.
