Wavesfactory says that The Tack is a recreation of "Mrs Mills", a tack piano from Abbey Road Studios with which The Beatles, Elliot Smith and many others recorded some of their tracks.

The tack piano (sometimes referred to as jangle piano, junk piano, honky-tonk piano or harpsipiano) is a permanently altered version of an ordinary piano, in which tacks or nails are placed on the felt-padded hammers of the instrument at the point where the hammers hit the strings, giving the instrument a tinny, more percussive sound.

Wavesfactory tells us that what's nice about the library is that it relies on an ordinary upright piano and you can add the amount of "tack" sound you want.

Intro price: €9.95 (€19.95 from March, 1st)
