The HR4 Complete Microphone System for Harmonica from AMT is the 4th generation harmonica microphone system that captures the sound of a harmonica as natural as possible while offering the ability for wired and wireless operation. It can be used to fit different sized harmonicas from diatonic to 16-hole and captures the voicing of the instrument for live stage, theater, and recording applications.
Larger hole harmonica's can be accommodated if the rack or optional side mounting clamps are removed and held freely in the players hand. The HR4 is designed to clamp onto standard neck racks. The neck rack clamps can be easily removed from the mic tube, allowing a free standing bar to hold in hand behind the harmonica while using the cupping technique, or replace the neck brace clamps with the optional side mounting harmonica clamps to attach the microphone to the harmonica.
Finally, the microphone is powered by the AMT inline preamp (requires 48V phantom power) which can be placed on the floor, a belt clip, or in a pocket. It has a low roll-off filter as well as a dB cut. The system includes a soft carrying pouch, AMT inline preamp, and neck-brace mounting clamp.
