Product Description:

These microphones are the “secret sauce” behind Cunningham Piano’s successful series of piano review videos. The Audix SCX25APS Piano Miking System comes with two Audix SCX25A large diaphragm condenser microphones and a unique mounting system that clips directly onto the piano’s cast iron frame, complete with XLR mic cables and a sturdy, protective aluminum carrying case. Diana Krall’s favorite piano microphones for good reason!

Expected Availability : 01 January

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 large diaphragm studio condenser microphone produces a highly transparent and remarkably accurate sound. This attribute combined with the SCX25A’s low profile and phase coherent reproduction, makes 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 SCX25A studio condenser microphone 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.

Audix SCX25A Specifications

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

The SCX25A is a low impedance microphone and should be plugged into a “mic level” input on your console, mixer, or recording device. The SCX25A requires phantom power and will NOT operate without phantom power voltage (48 Volts recommended) which is available on most professional mic preamps and mixing devices. If phantom power is not available on your equipment, use a phantom power supply such as the Audix APS2. Avoid plugging or unplugging the microphone from a PA system unless the channel is muted or the volume of the system turned down. Failure to do so may result in a loud “popping” noise which could seriously damage the speakers in the PA system or studio monitors. The SCX25A is manufactured to exacting specs with roadworthy construction. However, the capsule is highly sensitive and should be handled with care. Avoid extreme temperatures and be sure to store your microphone in the case provided when not in use. Moisture of any kind can adversely affect the sound and performance of your microphone.

USER TIPS

The correct side: Note that the front of the microphone element is on the same side as the printing. This side of the microphone should be facing towards the sound source. For live performance and live recordings, it is sometimes recommended to use the short stick or closed lid in order to minimize the surrounding instruments from “bleeding” into the piano mics. In these cases, it is suggested to use the Audix DFLEX mounting clips which enable the SCX25A to be mounted right on to the rail of the piano. The mics can be positioned horizontal to the sound board, typically one towards the front of the keyboard and one towards the rear of the keyboard over the bass strings.
