Designed to capture the subtleties of your acoustic bass.
The AMT S25B-TP is an electret-condenser microphone system that has been designed for acoustic bass. The system has exactly the same sound characteristics and functions as the famed S25B, however the "TP "(tail piece) systems includes the ability to mount the mic on the tailpiece of an acoustic bass.
All of the parameters that are problematic for the double bass have been addressed. The S25B- TP bass microphone will acquire the most gain before feedback by using a very tight pattern to give a high rejection to surrounding noise. At the same time, the system reproduces with great definition capturing all of the subtleties of the bass.
As placement is especially important with an instrument that has a fine finish and varying dimensions, this microphone's attachment mechanism is designed to attach to the tailpiece of the acoustic bass guitar. This allows the instrument and the microphone to be placed back into a carrying case without having to remove the microphone from the body of the instrument. All of the bass microphones now also include D.C.T. (Disconnect Cable Technology). D.C.T. allows you to remove the cable from the microphone.
Made from aluminum to keep the mass low yet extremely strong, the AMT bass mic will remain durable through many years of use. The flex arm is easy to position yet retains it's placement throughout the most active of performances.
The preamp for the microphone is rugged anodized aviation aluminum, which houses the electronics that can be placed on the floor. This preamp uses a circuit that can change EQ, curve, and gain by exchanging EPROM-like chip. The preamp runs off of battery or phantom power. The output is terminated with a male XLR type connector for balanced use. The AMT bass mic is connected to the preamp by a 4-pin locking connector. The system includes 1 microphone, cable that disconnects from the microphone, the AP40 preamp, and a hardshell case.
