The Arkells' Exclusive Photos from their Visit to the Piano Shop


It’s no doubt that Canada’s top rock band the Arkells love Lomography Cameras. Last month we had the chance to see the photo journal of Mike DeAngelis and the adventures from their band tour. In this entry, he shares the photos that he took while visiting a piano shop, using his favourite Lomography Lady Grey 400 35mm film!

I recently visited my friend Adam Melnick at the Hamilton shop where he tunes and fixes pianos.

If it has keys, strings, or speakers there’s a good chance Adam can build or fix it.

He’s recently begun building his own custom guitar amps from scratch under the name OREC, even down to the wooden cabinets to keep an eye out for them on stage in the near future.

It was really cool to see all of the pianos in various states of assembly. They’re such complicated and detailed instruments, and it was a real treat to see Adam working his magic on them.
