Lives for gear

Given several of the OPs stated objectives of use while lid is closed, permanent install, and unobtrusiveness to allow alternative micing it seems to me the main option is DPA. Countryman lavalier was even mentioned in another recent thread.

Last week I was looking at different Schoeps CCM 4P models for just this purpose as they have attenuated bass response for placement in close proximity. But while the Schoeps could perhaps be used (or not) with some of DPA's magnet mounts I figured the cost was not justified because I have other mics I like very much for piano even if they cannot be installed on a permanent basis.

So I reverted back to the DPA to leave in the piano "permanently" and will probably go that route once the dust settles here.
