Soniccouture has released Celeste. A spokesperson told us, "Named after the heavens themselves, the Celeste has always been the most ethereal ofsounds. In orchestras and cinema it plays the parts where a sense of the magical is required."
Soniccouture collaborated closely with Schiedmayer to produce Celeste. Schiedmayer Celesta GmbH has been producing celestas since 1890 and since 1975 is the sole manufacturer to build celestas according to the inventor's original specifications.
Soniccouture tells us that that Knut Schiedmayer selected their very best instrument, fully tuned and serviced to a 'perfect' condition before shipping it to the Soniccouture studio. The 5.5 octave 'Studio' model represents the pinnacle of Celesta building, and SC says that they are very grateful to Schiedmayer for their support.
