Described as a "hidden gem", "The Basilica Pianos" is a high quality, but affordable sample library, that features both a grand piano and an upright piano, recorded in the same space and sampled by hand, using a stereo microphone setup. Also included are various effects, from strumming and plucking the strings of the grand piano, to a playable range of palm-muted samples from the upright piano. Each piano is available by itself ($25), minus effects.
