Now isn't that something you need to hear?

JJ I can't believe you have those mics that close to the strings of that piano! Does it sound weird or just look that way?

It's the angle.  They are perhaps 8-10" from the strings.  About equal height with the lid edge.  They are rather close for proximity effect.  I'm going for the same sound as A/B mic'ing the strings, but without phase cancellation.

Wow, awfully far DOWN the strings innit?

How dark does that sound?

DO you record it to two tracks, mixed? or three tracks (like a girly)? {g}

Two tracks, of course!  Sheesh.  Actually, it's not dark whatsoever.  The M55K omni really has a such terrific off-axis  high end response.  I generally use the Vac Rac tube EQs in the signal path, but it's generally to push a little 3khz and maybe pull out some low end so it doesn't fight with the bass.  I'll post a sound file at some point.  They said I was crazy, but  I'll show them!
