Piano Microphone Shoot Out in Big Boy!

The Sound Kitchen recently held a piano "Microphone Shoot Out" with our interns last week, to help them better understand the differences between the different types of microphones. Sean Shannon, SK Chief tech, had them mic up the C7 Yamaha piano in the Big Boy studio, with stereo pairs of Nuemann U87's, AKG C414's, AKG 452's, Audio Technica 3528's, Neumann TLM 170's, a PL20 underneath the piano with a Senheisser MD 421 on top and a pair of Milab microphones. The microphones were going directly into the API legacy console. No compression or EQ was added. Take a listen to the examples below. Which do you prefer?
