The main goal is to optimize the performances on several main points:
PIANO-1 is composed of the windshield with single axis swivel and light XLR extension, the main fabric, a suspension and a fur to be choosed.
For stereo or some surround recordings, the single knob two axis swivel (another CINELA exclusive) offers the advantages of a ball joint without disadvantages.
The shortened XLRM is fixed by a small knob and can be easily released without loosening the cap, in particular to permit the dismantling of the bellows.
The high wind protection is achieved by natural ovoid shape of large diameter (18 cm), which helps « omnidirectional » aerodynamics and increases the area of protection around the microphone.
The main double layer fabric, used alone, allows a very good level of protection for light or medium winds and offers a perfect acoustic transparency (-1 dB @ 100 Hz; -2 dB @ 20 kHz).
