I also used the P-84 kit on acoustic piano during tracking for the latest Matisyahu record. In this scenario, I'd normally go for a pair of Coles 4038 ribbon mics, but it was fantastic to be able to just throw something on the piano without too much thought and immediately get positive results. Piano is a very particular instrument to present to clients. If you give them something dark and dusty, some people will immediately think it doesn't sound "pro"; with the P-84, you can give them a bright shiny piano, with enough low end to make it feel grand and "expensive." I was thrilled with the results.

There is no doubt in my mind — or ears — that the Peluso P-84 makes a very credible alternative to Neumann's classic KM84, and this mic maintains the high standards of construction and sound quality that we have come to expect from Peluso. It is also supplied in a generously equipped and versatile kit, either singly or as a stereo pair. Personal audition is highly recommended .
