No Strings Attached

Slider Products designed the Piano Barre as a device to solve the problems of placing microphones in a suitable position above the strings of a piano, eliminating the need for conventional boom microphone stands, hastily assembled contraptions, and compromised microphone placement. The aluminum barre can support two microphones and, via the wings at each end, allow the assembly to rest on top of the piano's siderails. Any microphone can be used, and the lid can be positioned in any manner, including closed. The telescopic design of the microphone support system allows for a variable length of 23" to 55", and the weight is only 18oz. An optional attachment allows the aluminum barre to be clamped onto the body of the piano without causing damage to the strings or the piano. Slider Products La Mesa, CA
