Audio Question : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

What mic should I use to record a live piano in a dance studio?

-- Stewart (, November 14, 1999


Stew, use a shotgun mic from seinheiser(point it at the music source, keep it about 5 feet away) or a lavalier mic positioned very close to the piano (about two feet away) and watch your audio levels so they are not overmodulated. Good luck tickling the ivories. Signed, Biff

Ps. reply in this message board and let me know if you recieved this answer :o)
