Quantum Leap Pianos:
Bechstein D-280

Handcrafted in Germany, the 9′ Bechstein D-280 concert grand piano is a work of art with a sweetly singing, richly colored sound without a hint of metallic character. To sample this very special instrument for Quantum Leap Pianos, EastWest brought in legendary recording engineer Ken Scott, who used his unique mic techniques to capture this marvelous piano in all its glory. The results are stunning. You’ll find the Bechstein ideal for everything from classical to jazz to pop.

The C. Bechstein legacy

Built to meet the demands of the virtuoso pianists of the era, Bechstein pianos landed in many concert halls and private residences — including Queen Victoria’s Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. In modern times, in addition to gracing countless hits by artists such as the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Genesis, David Bowie, Yes, and Supertramp, Trident Studios’ century-old Bechstein grand reportedly was the piano played by Paul McCartney on the Beatles’ “Hey Jude” and by Freddie Mercury on Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

About Quantum Leap Pianos

The EastWest Quantum Leap Pianos collection includes highly detailed virtual versions of four great pianos, with features such as three microphone positions (Platinum only), multiple articulations, lid position simulation, 8–12 velocities per note, pedal resonance, and up to 18 dynamic layers. Included in the Quantum Leap Pianos collection are the Bechstein D-280 concert grand, Steinway D concert grand, Bösendorfer 290 concert grand, and Yamaha C7 grand. The EastWest PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs, so the pianos blend beautifully with those collections. 

“In summation, these are without question the most gorgeous sounding sampled pianos I’ve ever heard. If you’re looking for the most authentic sounding sampled grand pianos available at this time, and have a system that can handle it, Quantum Leap Pianos is a must-consider.”
