Frank's Celestette [SFZ Sample Library]
A celestette is slightly smaller than a normal celeste and the one I sampled for this sample library has an interesting history. It was first given to my grandfather, Frank Picher, as a gift in 1955, following his miraculous recovery from a life-threatening accident. Years later, it became part of my brother and I's childhood playroom. After some cleanup and TLC, this vintage celestette's glockespiel-like sounds are now available as a virtual instrument!
