Don't know why they'd go for so much mechanical noise.

You wanna hear mechanical noise ? Stick some hot condenser mics inside a Leslie cab,

My piano is pretty quiet but it is maintained by a pro Baldwin piano tech every two months.

My experiments today find that there are several ways to get a pretty decent sound. I mixed and matched mics and pres all day.

Results seem to indicate that SCD's (604's) in position A sound good but make the piano sound brighter than it really is. The fix ? Put a LCD in position B (bass side) and pan it slightly to the treble side and mix it with the pair.

Oddly almost the same results were obtained using LCD's copying the setup I had the other day with a Bluebird halfway peeking over the concave vertical body pointed at the lid. A Baby Bottle was dropped at the treble side of position A. The recording then sounded darker than the Baldwin. The fix? Position a 604 about halfway between the hammers and the bridge on the treble strings angled towards the middle.

None of this sounds as good as the PZM's I normally use but it's darn close.

I anxious for my 2 tube mics and ribbon mic to get here. I bet there are still some things to learn.

It's been a good day.
