The first technique we'll talk about today is a spaced pair of microphones inside the piano's lid, above the hammers. Use two flat-response condensor microphones; one positioned 12 inches above the treble strings and the other above the lower strings. Both mics should be about 8" from the hammers.

This technique will give you a less airy sound that may be able to cut through a mix a bit better than other piano recording methods. This type of recording may be desirable for pop/rock music. Experiment.

Below is our image gallery for this recording technique. If you click the pictures they should enlarge in a shadow box for you at the top of the page so you can see how I set things up.
