Piano Mics - sE Electronics
The piano: one of the largest and most complex instruments to record. Great piano mics hear deep within this magnificent instrument, capturing the intricacies of each struck note, from air to floor.
The X1 A (cardioid)
"The X1 A can convince you of its balanced frequency response, rich bass, unobtrusive yet present mids, as well as gentle highs...undoubtedly worth every cent of its low purchase price."
- Carsten Kaiser, Bonedo.de
"Close mic’ing a 9 ft grand piano with a stereo pair of RN17s showed the mic’s superb imaging and large, natural sound...for featured piano music, especially classical or jazz, this mic will become a standard."
- Adam Kagan, Tape Op Magazine
"My favorite ribbon mic in the entire world...A pair of those on a Steinway is about as good as it gets. They have that lovely extension on the top end that normal ribbons don’t have, but still have all the characteristics that I love."
- Simon Franglen, Composer / Producer / Musician ('Avatar', 'Titanic', 'Skyfall') - sE Artist
