The Earthworks PianoMicÂ™ 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 Earthworks Microphne system are two Random Incidence, omnidirectional, 40 kHz High Definition Earthworks MicrophonesÂ™. With a frequency response of 4 Hz to 40 kHz, the mics deliver extraordinary impulse response and extremely short diaphragm setting times. In addition, the Earthworks microphones exhibit no proximity effect, regardless of their distance from the piano strings or soundboard. The Earthworks mics, when positioned close to the sound source, also provide incredible gain before feedback.
