The M40 Piano Microphone System from AMT is designed for capturing piano and can also be used for boundary style layer capturing in conferences and stage performances. The condenser microphone features a cardioid polar pattern and rests on an attached surface, enabling the entire microphone to be flatly placed on top of a piano's sound board for detailed, transparent signal reproduction. There is a cardioid polar pattern for minimizing off-axis noise and ambient audio signal as well as sound pressure levels of up to 141 dB. The microphone's output stage features a standard 3-pin XLR male output connection and an attached 5' cable wired to an external power supply/output stage. The M40 is powered using 11 to 52V of phantom power or a 9V battery, and a durable, non-corrosive aluminum enclosure effectively protects the microphone from sudden shock.
Piano Sound Board Mounted
The M40 features a condenser element fixed on a flat surface, enabling the microphone to be mounted onto a piano sound board.
Detailed Audio Fidelity
The microphone's frequency and sensitivity response characteristics result in transparent, detailed, and warm audio fidelity.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
A cardioid polar pattern minimizes noise and ambient audio at the off-axis sections of the capsule.
High SPL Handling
The microphone is capable of withstanding sound pressure levels of up to 141 dB, providing wide dynamics without peak distortion.
External Output Stage
The output stage features a standard 3-pin XLR output connection and an attached, separate external output stage with a 5' cable.
Battery or Phantom Power
The microphone is powered using an external phantom power source or a 9V battery.
