Hi, I am assembling gear for recording my grand piano in my living room. The room acoustic is pretty good, fairly well damped but I think sufficiently live for a pleasing sound. I don't really want to spend too much, certainly no more than $1500. I will be using the Focusrite Sapphire with my MacBook Pro. [Edit: I forgot to say that for near-field monitoring I am using the Blue Sky EXO.] The problem I have is with mic selection. After doing a lot of reading on the web I've sort of narrowed down my choice to a pair of Rode NT2-A's. I would like opinions about them, and suggestions of alternatives in the same price range ($400 street price). I would like to capture some of the intimacy of the space and the the tonal subtleties of the instrument. Suggestions for mic placements to experiment with would be appreciated. I was particularly intrigued by Paul Cantrell's recording technique (http://innig.net/music/recordings/method/), but thought that the tonal balance was a little weak in the lower bass. (But that could be a characteristic of the Mason & Hamlin BB that he plays.) Thanks in advance!
