By PSW Staff • April 7, 2014 Ed Furguson at the National Theatre with the Earthworks PM40 PianoMic The prestigious London National Theatre recently added an Earthworks PM40 PianoMic for the musical “The Light Princess.” Ed Furguson, sound manager for the National Theatre and associate sound designer for the musical, working in conjuction with Simon Baker, purchased the PM40 after extensive tests. The musical, written by singer-songwriter Tori Amos and playwright Samuel Adamson, is centered around a grand piano, and in fact Amos’ personal grand piano was used for the production. The PM40 is quick and easy to use with a simple extendable pole which rests inside the grand piano and has miniature omni capsules optimized for grand piano delivering the perfect piano sound, at full stick, half stick or even with the lid closed and without the use of unsightly microphone boom stands. The PM40 is distributed in the UK by Unity Audio Ltd. Earthworks Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
