It’s not everyday that you get to do a recording like this. After 6 hours of set up we had moved the piano in our rental U-Haul truck, set up the room to catch debris and improve acoustics, and get our recording set up configured. 9 mics captured the carnage as Bryan Faber took this thing down bit by bit.
For those of you wondering the mics being used were as follows
- 2x Neumann KM184′s as stereo overheads
- Rode NTG3
- Electro-Voice DL42 a vintage shotgun mic (sadly this guy took the lid of the piano to the chin)
- Shure Beta91 (aka Larry [also took a beating])
- Sennheiser MD421
- ART M-Five Ribbon Mic
- AKG D112
- NS10 woofer as a sub kick. The signal from the D112 was fed into a dual 12″ 1400W sub and miced with the NS10 woofer.
The samples recorded here will be available for purchase in an upcoming release from my sister company. Details to follow!
