This ultra wide frequency range is unmatched by most microphones on the market, allowing you to easily capture every nuance of the pianos sound, from the lowest key to exceptional highs. The microphones deliver exceptional impulse response with short diaphragm settling times for optimal performance value. The microphones can also handle sound pressure level sup to 148dB, perfect for recording even the most dynamic of pieces. Additionally the microphones show no proximity effect, regardless of the distance from the piano strings or soundboard, ensuring you hear the full range of the piano with no hot spots.
