For Gear Heads:
Audix SCX25A-PS is the compact, portable set of mics perfect for recording grand or upright piano. Reproduction of piano sound is extremely challenging, particularly during live performances when other instruments are present. Ambient sounds near the piano often bleed into the piano microphones. To circumvent sound leakage, the piano is often played in the short stick or closed lid positions. The SCX25A produces a highly transparent and remarkably accurate sound. This attribute combined with the SCX25A’s low profile and phase coherent reproduction, make the SCX25A the optimum piano microphone for live sound or broadcast environments. To further enhance the ease of placement, two DFLEX mounting clips accompany the SCX25A and can be easily attached directly to the piano rail, enabling the SCX25A to be securely placed anywhere on the sound board. The Audix SCX25A-PS is undeniably the most compact, large diaphragm microphone on the market. It boasts an innovative design and patented capsule system. This pack includes two high quality, quad conductor microphone cables with braided shielding which helps reduce noise induction from external sources.
The Audix SCX25A-PS consists of two SCX-25a with clamps. This system is perfect for miking grand piano in the studio and definitely live. It is compact, stays in position and if you need to close the piano lid to prevent bleed...you can! All while still getting a great piano sound.
