FAQ #468 Updated July 25, 2007

Question:

Which wireless systems would you recommend for a piano?

To fully answer your question, I need more details. Is this for an acoustic piano, or to send the signal from a player piano somewhere else? What is the application?

The best solution for a "wireless" piano is to mount a surface mount microphone under the lid, connected to a bodypack transmitter. Any wireless system will work, but if you only need one wireless at the location, the Shure PG or PGX series systems should be fine (either the PG14 or PGX14 system).

For a microphone, the Shure Beta91 can be easily mounted under a piano lid, using Velcro or double-sided tape. Instead of using the supplied preamp, connect the microphone directly to the input of the bodypack.
