The AMT VS-5C Clip-On Microphone with Wi5IIC Wireless System for Violin/Viola is suitable for players looking for a beltpack-free wireless system. The VS-5C system comes with the VS Microphone, and the Wi5IIC Wireless System. The entire microphone and mounting mechanism is designed to clamp securely to the body of the instrument without damaging its finish. The element itself is attached to a flexible gooseneck, allowing easy positioning at the soundboard. The cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes off-axis audio that causes noise and feedback. The microphone is specifically designed for the smaller instruments in the string family and provides pure tonal reproduction while being unobtrusive.
Wi5IIC Wireless System
The Wi5IIC Clip-on Wireless System creates a beltpack-free operating environment. It is designed to clip on and off of all AMT microphones by using a hand-machined clip that locks onto various mounting brackets throughout the microphone lineup. Because the Wi5IIC will clamp onto to all AMT models, the microphone can also be used wired with optional AMT preamps (sold separately).
The ZRIII receiver will allow 2 microphone / transmitter setups to be used with 1 receiver. The ZRIII receiver includes 2 separate outputs on the back panel for complete control over each microphone / transmitter channel.
The Wi5IIC includes 99 selectable channels. Control of the channels is changed via infrared controls from the receiver to the transmitter.
Since the transmitter will clip on to all AMT models, it is very simple to use your microphone wired with any of the available AMT preamps. If you double on instruments and require multiple microphones, the same Wi5IIC / transmitter can be connected to other optional AMT microphones (sold separately).
The Wi5IIC transmitter includes a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which can be recharged over 1000 times and gives 7-8 hours of continuous use. Charge the transmitter on the break and you'll be ready for the next gig.
Digital LCD Displays
Both the transmitter and receiver include illuminated LCD displays for easy visibility on dark stages, or poorly lit clubs or concert halls.
Detachable antennas allow for the addition of a rack and booster kit (sold separately).
Mute and On/Off Button
The Wi5IIC transmitter includes a mute button as well as an on/off switch for saving battery life on the breaks.
The rear panel of the ZRIII receiver includes an A & B output for each side of the dual receiver. A 1/4" output is also included which parallels output A.
