Gefell M 950 at the International Chopin Piano Competition 2015

Microtech Gefell were very pleased with the decision of the renowned Frederyk Chopin Institute in Warsaw to use Gefell M 950 microphones for classical music, including for this year’s 17th Chopin competition.

The wide-cardioid M 950 is an excellent choice where an omni-directional microphone is unsuitable as this gives an excellent balance - having a lot of the characteristiccs of an omni, but with some directivity as well.

The competition, which has been held for 88 years and is one of the oldest piano competitions in the world, is an exceptional national and international highlight for the world’s top pianists.

The battle between the most brilliant pianists of today was of enormous significance, both in Poland and internationally. For three-and-a-half weeks, the works of Frédéric Chopin could be heard during the competition.

This year’s winner, Seong-Jin Cho of South Korea, can look forward to worldwide recognition. Among previous winners, who went on to achieve international renown, are virtuosos such as Adam Harasiewicz, Maurizio Pollini, Martha Argerich, Krystian Zimerman, Yundi Li and Rafal Blechacz.

New Price Lists
Due to the recent collapse of the pound we have, reluctantly, had to increase prices a little.
We have kept the increase to a minimum and prices are still lower than they were at the end of 2014.
Gefell have just released a new price list, although factory prices have remained mostly unchanged,
there have been quiite a few new products added and items previously marked "to be advised" are now priced, so it may be a good idea to download the new price list and have a browse.
Current price lists are on the Price List page of the website.
We have been having some great reviews in recent months - Resolution reviewed the
new Gefell MD 300 microphone in the January/February 2016 issue.
We will link to the review as soon as Resolution release the link.

All reviews are on the Reviews page of the website.
