Performance miking of a stringed harp

FAQ #271 Updated May 12, 2017

Question:

I'm looking for a recommendation for a microphone to pick up a harp, the stringed instrument, not a harmonica, for live performance in small venues, such as school auditoriums, at cocktail parties, weddings, and possibly outdoor concerts for small audiences. Please advise.

Answer:

We recommend the KSM137, SM137, or PGA81 to mic a string instrument such as the harp.

For a complete listing of microphones that we recommend for stringed instruments, see our online Selection Guides/Buyers Guides.

We outline how to mic many different instruments in our online publication "Microphone Techniques for Music - Sound Reinforcement".

Harp mic placement is on page 23.
