Why use three REMIC P6100 Microphones on a Grand Piano?
A grand piano is, as the word says, grand. It is big. If you look at concert grand like a Steinway Model D, but also a model C, any Bösendorfer grand piano or other and similar sized instrument, it is very clear that there is a certain amount of space and strings to cover.
The whole spectrum of such a wonderful instrument should only be captured by three of the REMIC P6100 microphones. Using a REMIC P6100 TRIPLE kit with 3 microphones will guarantee that you get the most satisfying, warm and powerful sound out of your instrument.
Let us go into some details and explanations. The REMIC P6100 is an instrument microphone, which is directly attached with very strong magnets to the metal frame of the piano. This is a very easy and versatile mounting technique. It delivers a very authentic and warm sound. The direct contact to the metal will not produce any rattle or disturbing noise.
Warm and Present Sound
If you like a warm and present sound, we suggest a position as illustrated below. In this position, you want to add a third microphone, to get more bass strings, so you will achieve a fuller sound.
Super Wide Sound
If you like a super wide sound, try the position below. In order to stabilize the sound in the center of the image, you should place the third microphone in the center of the stereo image.
Sound with Hard Attack
If you like a sound with hard attack, you could place the microphone as shown on the photo below. Also here, you should use three microphones to cover all areas of the piano. It might be necessary to move the third microphone a little bit to find the best position for the best sound.
For all of the above positions, we strongly recommend to pan the two main microphone hard left-right. Otherwise, you will experience strange effects in the sound spectrum.

Feedback from the Field
“I loved the P6100’s, one of the major historic issues with mic’ing a grand piano is access and positioning, with these little beauties the design is just genius, soft padding, beautifully wrapped cable so no danger of damaging your instrument and wait for it…… magnetic, yes magnetic simplicity at its best, they also sound great, warm and natural open sound able to catch fast transients. Fine adjustments on positioning can quickly and easily be made to fine tune your sound. I so enjoyed their ease of use, brilliant.”
