The Earthworks 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 settling 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.
