I'm looking to Mic an Upright piano (and later possibly a Grand) and am trying to make a mic choice (of course, the end variable is cost
So, what do you think would sound better?
1) an AKG C414 close to strings with another cheaper condensor (maybe a Rode NT1) mic'd further away to pick up ambience OR
2) Mid level condensor equidistant apart (2 AKG C3000b or C4000)
and the big one- What do you think will be better for piano - an AKG C414 or a Neumann TLM103?
