I was hoping to find out what Max’s problem was with Van Gelder’s piano setup that irritated him so much.
Bolleman doesn’t speak of irritation, his story about the piano sound solely suggests curiosity about the ‘big question’. He’s on FB, don’t hesitate to ask. I understand the curiosity on your part, thanks, might ask him as well.
What Bolleman does reveal is another ‘secret’. Van Gelder introduced Bolleman to the first pressings room. There, Bolleman noticed a EMT Gold Plate, which suggests that RVG, contrary to his claim, did not solely use the studio as a natural echo chamber. Intriguing!
