This closely mic'ed felted piano i recorded... can't seem to EQ it properly. Either too boomy and undetailed, or it's detailed but 'tin canned'. Have any hunches/ideas/tips to approach this problem?

In my experience close mics don't work too well on pianos.

As always, the rule is 'garbage in, garbage out'.

Or, alternatively, you can't polish a turd.

The only answer is to re-record.
