Earthworks PM40 PianoMic System

Simple piano miking system featuring dual high-definition random incidence mics for piano providing incredible results for live performances and studio recordings

MFR# PM40

Product Description

The Earthworks PM40 PianoMic System is a simple piano miking system that takes just minutes to setup and provides incredible results for live performances and studio recordings. An elegantly simple design that blends seamlessly into the piano, while delivering sound that stands out.

The heart of the PM40 PianoMic System is two omnidirectional 40 kHz High Definition Microphones with a frequency response from 9 Hz to 40 kHz, incredible impulse response and very short diaphragm settling time. The 40 kHz High Definition Microphones have been designed for random incidence pickup. When microphones are placed inside a piano they are within a sound field that has multiple sound sources: i.e. every string, the soundboard, multiple reflections of the sound from the sound board, the sides and the lid of the piano. All these sound sources and reflections produce sound waves that arrive at the microphones from all directions. This is called a diffused sound field, and the microphones are designed to perform optimally within such diffused sound field. In addition, these omni microphones have no proximity effect and the sound will remain the same (no increase or decrease in low frequency levels) no matter how close or how far the microphones are from the piano strings or sound board. This system provides exceptional sound quality with the piano lid either up or down.

FEATURES:

  • Incredible high definition audio that will outperform any microphones at any price
  • Cannot be seen from outside of the piano 
  • Needs no stands or mic booms
  • Superb sound with the piano lid either up or down
  • Virtually no leakage from sounds outside the piano
  • Incredible gain before feedback
  • Recording studios can now record piano with other instruments in the same room
  • Quick, simple and easy setup
  • Hear the full range of the piano including the high and low strings with no hot spots
  • The telescoping bar allows the PianoMic to be quickly and easily installed in nearly all grand pianos and to place the microphones close to or away from the dampers and get the exact sound desired

Sounds phenomenal, super easy to use. It lives inside my grand permanently. The only downside is where they hid the serial number when you go to register it. It's tucked inside an XLR jack.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
