Model 400 Grand & Upright Touring System

We combined the Model 380 Grand unit with a special set of Humbucking Upright pickups compatible with the XLR-input phantom-powered mixer to allow the touring keyboardist to be able to work with any kind of piano ever encountered on the road. Inspired by Charles Helpinstill (Ezra Charles)'s frequent festival trips to Europe: when faced with the various possibilities he might have to deal with, he put together this combination to handle anything out there, and also to take advantage of the latest developments in Helpinstill Sensors. A special type of Upright Sensors with Balanced-Line, Humbucking construction and XLR connectors to interface with the Phantom-Powered Control Box adds vertical pianos to the capabilities. The Model 380 Grand pieces are shown in the photograph; the 400 has three more elements for the Upright installations that make a total of six. Comes with a free carrying case. $1995

Also available: Model 300/400 System without Mixer. Our new Balanced-Line Sensors terminate in XLR-type connectors, making it easy to plug directly into three channels of a sound system or any mixer with mic inputs. When used in this manner, the different sections of the piano can be EQ'd separately and even panned into a Stereo configuration. Many acts are now using this method to interface directly into their monitor board or FOH. Comes with all the brackets and accessories necessary for installation on any Grand or Upright piano and a free carrying case. (Please note that, when ordered without a mixer, the Model 300 and Model 400 are identical.) $1395
