Default What was the audio device on Freddie Mercury's piano


The movie very accurately mimics the videos of the actual Live Aid performance down to the detail of the green tape on FM's mic cable.

So what was the box with 5 or 6 knobs on top of his piano near his left hand?

Default What was the audio device on Freddie Mercury's piano

Somebody posted this on a Queen forum three years ago:

"The piano mic system was a helpinstil pickup. Basically a humbucker pickup designed to fit on the piano sound board. The output as far as I know was split three ways. One to FOH, one to the monitor desk (stage left) providing a mix for the whole band and one to Freddies two piano monitors via the volume tone and presence control. The last of the three was important to Freddie as he needed to have immediate control of the piano sound in that area of the stage as when he was playing he was not in contact with the monitor mix position (being on the opposite side of the stage and facing off stage).

The control box had no effect on the sound the rest of the band and audience heard. "
