Great alternative for live sound in grand pianos
We are miking a Yamaha grand piano in a church for the purpose of both live and recorded sound. Having priced out a number of systems for picking up piano sound, this turned out to be a great (and more economical) alternative! We set up two mics by mounting them to the ribs above the strings, one above the higher register and one above the lower. The low-profile, side-address design allows us to keep the lid closed entirely, which has noticeably helped us prevent bleed from other sound sources.
As far as setup goes, placement is crucial, so you'll have to experiment to find the right spot above the strings and the right balance mixed between the two channels. But once you nail down the location and lock it in, these mics deliver a really flat sound that mixes well. They're very forgiving, and don't seem to have any bad habits. I'd certainly recommend them for anyone looking for an alternative option for miking a grand piano.
