Invented over 125 years ago, the celesta remains a nicely obscure yet fascinating instrument: It sports a vibrant, mellow and charming sound remeniscent of a vibra- phone, glockenspiel, marimba and a piano – yet a sound of its own. The celesta offers rich harmonics and bell-like tone that chimes with force. At that time, it was inspiring to those looking for a new sound – Tschaikowsky wrote some parts of his Nutcracker for a celesta. Back then, no one had ever dreamt that a celesta would be as relevant today as ever – being the acoustic ancestor of the most popular vintage electric pianos, which share the same basic sound principles. Providing a warm and full bass, it carries more weight than a toy piano and is great for any track demanding an unconsumed yet familiar sound.
