Product Information
Overview The PianoMic System was designed to revolutionize piano miking and achieve an incredible improvement in piano sound for live and recording applications with no mic stands or booms. There is more gain before feedback, significantly less leakage from surrounding instruments and the same pristine sound quality with the piano lid either up or down. At the heart of the system are two Random Incidence, omnidirectional, 40 kHz High Definition Microphones. With a frequency response of 9 Hz to 40 kHz, the mics deliver extraordinary impulse response and extremely short diaphragm setting times. In addition, the microphones exhibit no proximity effect, regardless of their distance from the piano strings or soundboard. The mics, when positioned close to the sound source, also provide incredible gain before feedback.
Features
  • The original PianoMic System and winner of the 2008 TEC Award for Microphone Technology/Recording
  • Cannot be seen from outside of the piano (needs no stands or mic booms)
  • Superb sound with the piano lid either up or down
  • Virtually no leakage from sounds outside the piano
  • Incredible gain before feedback
  • Recording studios can now record piano with other instruments in the same room
  • Handles sound pressure levels up to 148dB
  • Incredible gain before feedback
  • Quick, Simple and Easy Setup
