Electret-Condenser Microphone for Acoustic Bass with Side-Mounting Clamp and "Super" Preamp


The AMT SP25B is Applied Microphone Technology's microphone original side clamping system for acoustic basses.  It is designed, manufactured by hand, and distributed by AMT in the USA.  The system is intended to clamp onto the side of a bass allowing for quick and easy removal for traveling or when the microphone is no longer needed.  An adjustable clamp allows for different sized instruments.

The side-mounting systems are the #1 choice for top professionals that look for the most natural sound reproduction possible from a clip on microphone.  The SP25B includes updated features including D.C.T. (Disconnect Cable Technology), with the ability to connect the Wi5IIC creating a beltpack-free wireless system, if desired.

The systems are an electret-condenser microphone that has been designed specifically for acoustic bass.  All of the parameters that are problematic for the double bass have been addressed.  In order to get the most gain before feedback, it uses a very tight pattern to give a high rejection to surrounding noise, at the same time reproducing accurately 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 secure the mic to the bass in different positions taking only seconds to attach.  The concept for the original version of the AMT Bass microphone was to be able to position the microphone exactly where the player wanted as well as making it portable for travel.  The clamping mechanism is fitted with natural soft suede so as not to mark or mar the 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 its placement throughout the most active of performances.

This SP25B utilizes a complex circuit that is tailored for the needs of an acoustic bass player playing in live sound applications with instruments such as drums and acoustic pianos.  The system requires 1 XLR mic level output.  The preamp for the microphone is rugged anodized aviation aluminum, which houses the electronics that can be placed on the floor.

The preamp is powered by battery or phantom power.  The output is terminated with a male XLR-type connector for balanced use.  The mic is connected to the pre-amp by a four pin locking connector.  Comes with AP40 Floor Preamp with 1 XLR Output, mounting system, and hard shell case.

The SP25B comes complete with the AMT Super Preamp, case, and AMT disconnecting cable. Intended to sit on the floor, the SP preamp has both an XLR and 1/4" line driver output which could be used at the same time.  Phantom power, an optional (sold separately) power supply, or a 9-volt battery required.
