Maximum diameter: 16cmWeight: 330 grams without fur
but with suspension, XLRs and main cover
Length: 40cm - Maximum diameter: 17cm
Aerodynamic ovoid shape and maximum internal volume around microphone acoustic sections for high wind resistance.
The primary covering is a 2mm thick 3D fabric to provide a very good first level wind protection for a total acoustic transparency.
Detail of a cage isolator
Small fixing points on the cross for an optional fixation of Binder plugs panels.
Cinela's exclusive cage suspension for maximum isolation from vibration and handling noise.
21cm microphone on the first fixing point at the rear of the support.
The mono version using the new OSIX series with elliptical isolators.
Total interchangeability of suspensions between PIANO, PIANISSIMO and the OSIX 7,8 and 9.
Double Schoeps M&S system (2 x CCM4 + 1 x CCM8) with 3 detachable Binder cables
using a second Binder panel.
Output via XLR7M using a single 3mm cable.
Special adaptor for CCMs made to measure using 3D printer.
Second secret swivel, only adjustable with the help of a screwdriver. Very useful for stereo applications. The swivel and cable turn in a block on the central axis. As standard, unlike the PIANO, the PIANISSIMO turns on both axes, but can be locked for mono use.
The standard versions (PIANI-1, PIANI-2, PIANI-3) have XLR outputs on 3, 5, and 7, pin connectors. For the mono version the cable connection is a direct XLRM-XLRF. All the other versions have intermediate Binder connections. It is even possible to use up to 4 channels via two Binder panels and outputting on 3mm multiconductor cable.
An upgrade is easily accomplished by removing the central part and passing the XLRM through the opening.
