I have a midi keyboard, but really want this particular piano, it's got bags if character. She won't use the midi anyway as it's not got enough keys
I tend to always open lid, take front panel out; use a pair of (the same) condenser either side of the player, facing the strings through the now-open panel, about 4-6" distance.. Mics probably a foot in from the ends of the piano. Most of the guys I work with seem to do similar.414s are lovely for this, have also successfully used Neuman TLMs and others.. Doesn't really matter too much - Large Diaphragm is better than small..Live, I would do different things - but this is recording, so I think that is the optimum strategy..
