Comments about Audio-Technica AT5045 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone:
When my church commissioned me and my company to design, install and maintain new audio, video and lighting systems for our two campuses, I was told to do what I think is best. I have experience with just about every microphone there is on piano. I chose to use these mics, ear unheard, because of the recommendation of my rep Michael Canning and a couple of people who had heard the beta units. We did a shoot out with several other mics AKG, DPA, Earthworks, Shure and Neumann. These mics worked best, In fact, we use no EQ whatsoever on the piano. We were able to place the mics where they needed to be. The mounts are stellar. I would highly recommend these mics for recording as well.
