Made to handle the highest trumpet SPLs and is always in position.
The AMT P800 Studio microphone system combines the most natural sounding trumpet specific microphone system on the market with the AMT AP40 floor pre-amp. The AP40 converts the microphones to low impedance, it regulates the voltage to each microphone, and with certain models creates a specific frequency curve. The curve is necessary on certain models or instruments in order to maintain the most natural reproduction of sound in conjunction with achieving the most amount of gain before feedback in a live application. The output of the preamp is an XLR Low Impedance balanced output. The output sends signal at Mic Level.
The AMT P800 Studio Trumpet microphone system features an element somewhere in size between a small and large diaphragm, which prevents even the loudest of trumpet players to not overload the microphone. AMT has developed their special "Off the bell" clamping system for this model which clamps to the mouthpipe of the trumpet or flugelhorn.
The AMT P800 microphone allows the player to easily change to and from AMT different preamps and allows for direct connections to either Shure or Sennheiser beltpack transmitters. With a change in a cable, convert your P800 from a "Studio" style preamp, to a "Belt pack" series model, or to the AMT "W"ireless setups. The microphone is suspended in a 4 point isolation ring reducing key and handling noise. Phantom power or 9Volt battery required. Comes with AP40 floor or "DI" style preamp, hardshell case, and AMT disconnecting cable technology to allow the microphone to be used as "Wireless" or "BP" models if needed. (Additional cables for a variety of setups sold separately. The AMT Interface is also sold separately to allow connections for many wireless systems.)
