Acoustic Guitar Pickup Systems

B-Band Condenser Microphone (AG-MIC)

With the advent of the 1470 AST, the perception of making acoustic guitars sound more alive has changed. In the past, combining the signal of a B-Band UST and the B-Band Condenser Microphone had been the ultimate in reproducing all the nuances of an acoustic guitar's sound. Some may still prefer the qualities that a great soundhole condenser microphone can produce. For those who do, the B-Band Condenser Microphone is the perfect match for the UST or AST.

The special requirements of acoustic instruments prompted us to design the microphone with a bass roll-off built into it. The mic holder clamp and gooseneck provided allow easy installation and adjustment of mic position. The B-Band transducers and B-Band Condenser Microphone are accessed separately via a standard 6.3 mm / 1/4" TRS stereo cable with our A2 (guitar).

The B-Band Condenser Microphone can be used with the A2 preamp at the second channel instead of the AST. The AG-MIC only works with the model A2 preamp (not A2.2). New model A2 coming 2009.
