Mics, grand piano & classical music
Hello folks

I’m going to record a friend of mine who owns a Yamaha C7. The recording will take at his home (not a studio neither a big hall). The repertory is classical (some too-much-noise Rachmaninov, Bach and Scarlatti). I have two cardioid oktava mk 012 and a Neumann tlm 102. I attach a sketch of some possible solutions I’ve been thinking of. Please, guys, give me some feedback! Thank you very much

Try opening the lid and putting your mics facing downward into the sound holes. Experiment.

Here are some photos to give you ideas....
