Hooking up a $100K Grand Piano to massive hi-gain guitar amps

Follow by Email
I hooked up a Steinway grand piano to a bunch of monstrous amps to test if it can sound heavy enough to replace regular guitars. Also - My new album 'Pale Blue Dot' is finally out Stream it on Spotify at https://ronm.in/pbd ORIGINAL SONG: Royal Blood - Out of The Black VOCALS: Diana Golbi DRUMS: Roy Chen SOUND ENGINEER & MIXER: Eli Pikover CAMERA: Ben Reiss



Cláudio Moreira : Omg that voice :O just sounds perfect with that distortion piano!!!

Cookie Chocolatechip : I can not find anything I did not like on the video. The drums, the singer, the mutant of piano and guitar, your beard... Just perfect!

Keith : Demn.. She's got a gun for a mouth!

IffeOnline : Holy shit, she's got a great voice.

Tomasz Skiba : That voice fits soooo good there. Pretty amazed by her voice and by the choice of vocal effects.

Mjohnson409 : You sir are a master of manipulation. That gave me chills. Cheers from Texas.

TheSboobsy : Weirdly, it sounds like guitar pro. Very interesting video !

tim v : amazing singer, the piano's a nice gimmick but amazing singer

bla bla : It sounds awesome, but I still prefer the guitar (or bass in this case) for this kinda apllications, because bends and sometimes pitch "imperfections" from pulling a string are missing with the keys and that's an essential piece to that sound (in my opinion), because they add another layer of sounding "dirty" than having only a distorted sound. But don't stop experimenting, I love those videos!

Kun An : That PITAR or GIANO does djent!

A B Cars N’ Guitars : Wow this is awesome! She’s got some amazing vocals man, how the hell does this only have 30k views? Im obsessed.

YouareGodsmackt : the song sounds great and she can sing great

ShadowCat : I like that AC T-shirt

tkzsfen : the vocals are perfect for this rendition of the song!

Cole Kurtenbach : This is flipping awesome! That piano can definitely replace guitars with the pedals and amp. I wouldn't believe it was a piano, but for a little bit of classic piano tone on your right hand in the chorus. Amazing work, well done!

Pabelosse : Now i want to hear that without effect <3

Nico Smets : Nice hand muting. It still could use some string bending though :0)

LowEndStrings : Awesome sound! Nice drumming and great voice! Really cool. Not just a demo - it’s a really cool song! :-)

muhammad Osama : what is that voice tho !? , goddamn love it

Joey Sahouria : Man, you should try a Helpinstill humbucker with those amps. That would be badass!

uderzo1984 : That was awesome! Great vocalist too :D

The Dog Man : I literally forgot what this video was originally showing off because I was so caught up in the song. It's a really awesome rendition and major kudos to the vocalist here, she absolutely fucking killed it.

Güber McSanchez : Metal af. True musicians at work.

Jazz Ad : Damn, this Diana Golbi girl has great pipes. I love the voice and attitude.

wyldemantis : Gives me chills...amazing voice. Btw nice high gain piano!

nebulae cluster : When u want to play guitar but u only have a piano 😂

Hyperchicken : That is a gorgeous drum kit. Why swap out samples like that?

Nick K : You guys do a really great job experimenting with stuff. Do appreciate!!! BUT.... OH MY F**KING FLYING DOG..... THE VOCALS THE VOCALS. this is day 4 since i discovered this video and every time im still being shocked by her voice. Shits strong!!! Nice beard btw

SergentBoucherie : This is amazing

Georgi Ganev : Pretty amazing cover but the drums were way to loud (vocals too kinda), couldn't hear the guitar/piano tone very well

nonedescriptivepresence. : Love the percussive nature of the piano replacing the guitar. Gave the heavy style a breath of fresh air.

Ace Jenkins : I really enjoy that you've done this so well. I definitely don't have mics that can handle this yet. Soon though. I'll be doing more research. Thanks again!

J4C3L 4V4LOS : Amo tu barba xD saludos desde México

TinniTolkay : Круто! красавчик, хотя ты всё равно не поймёшь.что я тебя похвалил))

Miden King : Came for metal piano...stayed for that unbelievable voice

Clemens : You doin pretty cool stuff Bro

Roi Horowitz : וואו, שיחקת אותה עם דיאנה! שנים לא שמעתי שירים חדשים ממנה.. חבל..

Fairy C Rat : Plebs: vocals/guitar/bass/drums Royal Blood: get rid of that guitar Ron: piano is everything

Felicia Lally : So innovative. I was gobsmacked by the piano guitar effect, and overwhelmed by the band as a whole. Thank you for your contribution to society.

Slimmy Jimmy J : The glove should be blue

Goat From Hell : Palm muting his piano😂😂😂 great way to play perfect pitch in a Marshall amp👍😎 you rock🤘you should try a caparison perfect pitch guitar too

Effects Junkie : Wowza

iDemandU90 : A Diezel VH4?? Lol where do you get the budget for these videos? Haha Fantastic use of rock gear and classical piano. Great job by everyone in the video!

Иван Иванов : you and the entire band rock!

Amek747PL : It's a shame I cannot find any more heavy songs with Diana Golbi on vocals. She sounds wicked awesome here! \m/ And I think I like her vocals even more than Mike Kerr's in the original! Great work!

BassOutcast : So it's a piano, sounding like a bass that sounds like a guitar. Now we need a guitar that sounds like a piano that sounds like a bass that sounds like guitar

Margo Kafka : This is such an amazing video how has this not blown up

adr boe : Did not work at all. Replacing guitars in a Royal Blood song with Piano, you didn't even come close. Not for the sound, but because there is no guitar in the original. But still a damn awesome bass substitute :)
