Chamber Grand Piano

Performed by: Paul Carroll

“The two BM9s arrived safely on Tuesday and I’ve spent the last couple of days trying them out in various ways on my new Shigeru SK5 chamber grand.

The only word that comes to mind is – perfect. Up till now I’ve been using various other mics, but these are the absolute icing on the cake. I’ve just recorded 3 short improvisations if you want to use them on your website.

For your info, there’s no compression but have rolled quite a bit of bass off due to the proximity effect, maybe not enough. And the piano itself tends to be a bit ‘middy’ so I’ve pulled out round the 500 – 700hz range and added a touch of reverb. Other than that, just the pure mics. Very happy with them. Cheers, Paul Carroll”.
