VS Studio Cardioid Condenser Microphone with AP40 Floor Preamp & Cable, Hardwired, for Violin, Viola and Mandolin


The AMT VS Studio version combines the most natural sounding violin, viola, and mandolin microphone system on the market with the AMT AP40 floor pre-amp. The AP40 replaces the stock AMT BP40 belt pack 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 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 VS Studio version is meant to be used either in a studio setting where close micing of an instrument is desired or in a professional level setting where the sound engineer needs or wants control of the microphone.
