I used some ATM Pro 35's clipped on a small piece's of cardboard to position them inside of a K. Kawi 7' Grand. We had tried a C24/C12a combination, U87, C451's, 4033's trying all manner of combinations and configurations but the producer who was also the piano player, kept sniveling about the piano sound not being what he wanted. He kept wanting to play his digital / electronic keyboard and I was frantic to keep him playing a real piano. Sessions went on for over a year between several different projects and one day I finally tried the Pro 35's in desperation. He really liked it and asked me why didn't you try this a long time ago? Some people are never happy. ....Fats
