The Small Upright sound library features a six-octave model 1001 piano by August Hoffman, a renowned Swedish brand with lineage tracing back to the late 1800s. This specific instrument is often referred to as the “Bambino” and was built in the 1970s. Due to its small size, it produces a distinct, focused tone perfectly suited to cut through in any mix. Still to this day, and despite the fact that it’s since long out of production, the inimitable timbre of the August Hoffman “Bambino” can be heard in songs by many top indie pop, rock and alternative bands.
