Micing Acoustic Piano

Here is the first video in a series that will focus on recording with budget microphones. How to get the best sound possible out of an affordable mic. This first installment deals with one of the hardest instruments to mic and that's an Acoustic Piano. Join me through trials of mic positioning and then processing to get the best tone possible.

Right, I agree, very nice video. I wondered what you would get by reducing the pan a bit on the paired mic setup.
Can you ADD more MICING video for accustic and electric guitar please ?
PS: I used to mic accoustic guitars with a condensor mic at about 60-80 cm from the hole and a second mic (sm57) at about 10 cm by the bridge to pick up the pick strumming...

Nice one Johnny. Amazing what you can get ... firstly with a real nice piano, but then with simple mics and very simple channel strip EQ. I like the way you keep it all very simple. But most importantly, you LISTEN! As silly as that sounds, Sometimes we forget to really do that.
