The entire microphone and mounting mechanism is designed to clamp securely to the body of the instrument without damage to it’s finish. The element itself is attached to a flexible gooseneck, allowing easy positioning at the soundboard. The cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes off-axis audio that causes noise and feedback. The microphone itself is specifically designed for the smaller instruments in the string family. The microphone provides pure tonal reproduction while being unobtrusive. The reproduction of natural sound of the instrument is the goal.
The latest VS updates allow the player to easily change to and from AMT’s different preamps while also allowing for direct connections to the Wi5IIC, Shure, Sabine, Line 6 or Sennheiser wireless systems.
