A single 8 inch (20cm) C-ducer tape microphone is used on the bass or cello
The C-ducer tape microphone is most widely used on the piano with over 15,000 systems sold. C-ducers are used in many venues from studios to churches, concert halls, cruise ship piano bars, jazz clubs and music festivals.
Both grand or upright pianos use two 8 inch (20cm) tapes, one being positioned towards the treble end of the piano soundboard, and one towards the bass end. In the Professional Mono C-ducer (CQ2/8), the signal is combined for a mono feed.
The Professional C-ducer range provides a balanced, line-level output, and the Gigster provides an unbalanced line out for an amplifier or stage mixer.
The Gigster range is powered by its own integral battery, providing many years of use without changing the battery, and the Professional range is 48 volt Phantom Powered.
Place C-ducer tapes on the piano soundboard closely following the diagram. The tapes should not cross either of the bridges since distortion may result. This should produce a clear, balanced quality sound. It is important that the Tapes adhere well to the surface of the soundboard, which should be free of dust before application of the Tapes.
