I know that the coming year will find me figureing out how best to mic our piano for any live music things, and I want to be ahead of the game. It's an upright piano, and we've just stuck one mic in the top of it, and it sounds like crap. I was thinking of either putting two mics (we only have AKG C1000's for our wired mics, we have no dynamics) and EQ'ing and panning them, doing the same, but point them at the soundingboard, or sticking one of my MXL 990's in the piano, but I'm not sure phantom power works with our patchbays. Anyone have any other suggestions? Our mic selection is limited to the c1000's, our wireless hh ones, my dinky AT digital reference dynamics, and my MXL condensers.
