The AMT S18C is Applied Microphone Technology's microphone original-side clamping system for cellos.  It is designed, manufactured by hand, and distributed by AMT in the USA.  The system is intended to clamp onto the side of a cello allowing for quick and easy removal for traveling or when the microphone is no longer needed.

The S18C is the #1 choice for top professionals that look for the most natural sound reproduction possible from a clip-on microphone.  The S18C includes updated features including D.C.T. (Disconnect Cable Technology) with the ability to connect the Wi5IIC creating a beltpack-free wireless system.

The AMT S18C is an electret-condenser microphone that has been specifically designed for cello.  All of the parameters that are problematic for string instruments have been addressed during an intensive study on the sonic characteristics of the instrument.

The first priority was to be able to get the most gain before feedback.  The S18C uses a very tight pattern to give a high rejection to surrounding noise, at the same time reproducing accurately the subtleties of the cello.

As placement is especially important with an instrument that has a fine finish and varying dimensions, this microphone's attachment mechanism is designed to secure the mic to the cello in different positions taking seconds to attach.  The attachment mechanism is fitted with natural soft suede so as not to mark or mar instrument.

Manufactured with lightweight aluminum to keep the mass low yet extremely strong, this microphone will remain durable through many years of use.  The flex arm, unlike any other microphone system on the market, is easy to position yet retains it's placement throughout the most active of performances.

The preamp for the microphone is made of rugged anodized aviation aluminum, which houses the electronics that can be placed on the floor.  The preamp runs off of battery or phantom power.  The output is terminated with a male XLR-type connector for balanced use.  The mic is connected to the preamp by a 4-pin locking connector.
