For more than 160 years, Steinway & Sons has been on a continuing quest to improve the Steinway piano. Continuous improvement means finding the perfect balance of the many thousands of parts which make up a Steinway piano.
Although not easy to reproduce, they can be modeled in Second Life. Grimes Musical Instruments has taken inspiration from the infamous Steinway and produced the lovely Stingray & Sons grand piano in Second Life.
With a land impact of just 12 prims and features such as a highly detailed design, 100% mesh, piano seat with animations, and an inbuilt Music Player with 20 songs for you to play, this is an item to be treasured. At $749 Linden Dollars for a Mod/ Copy version it’s a great price for a quality item.
One of Grimes’ star attractions is the White Steinway, as used by John Lennon and featured on his ‘Imagine’ LP Record.
To own a piano like this is to join the realms of John Lennon and Lady Gaga, who was famously photographed and Twittered playing the gift from Yoko Ono by John & Yoko’s son Sean Lennon. There was outcry about this Twitpic from Beatles fans who felt the leotard and fishnet clad Paparazzi-hunter was not worthy of sitting at the iconic instrument.
Grimes also makes a large selection of other great musical instruments, such as:
- – Electric pianos
- – Guitar amps
- – Audio stage & club speaker systems
- – Complete Stage & Club Lighting Rig Trellis System
- – Violin Player Pack
- – Vintage Microphone
- – A selection of Microphones & Stands
- – Plus Drum Kits
