AMT WS overview

  • 1Description

From Applied Microphone Technologies (AMT), the WS clarinet microphone is unique in design and function. The microphone mounts to the clarinet and features 2 cardioid microphone elements, each attached to flexible goosenecks. The elements are designed to be positioned at the bell and keys of the clarinet.

The dual miking technique results in a natural, authentic reproduction of the instruments mechanics as well as the sound produced from the bell. The elements feature cardioid polar patterns, which suppress residual noise and audio signal at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The microphone connects to a separate beltpack that provides the output stage and power. The WS clarinet microphone operates on 12-52 Volt phantom power.

Dual Element Design
The WS features dual cardioid microphone elements to capture signal from the bell and keys of the clarinet.
Flexible Microphone Positioning
The dual capsules are mounted on goosenecks for flexible, easy microphone positioning.
External Power Supply and Output Stage
An external beltpack is wired to the microphone and provides a standard XLR output as well as variable impedance level. The size of the beltpack is convenient for use in performances.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid polar patterns greatly reduce residual noise and feedback at the off-axis sections of the microphone capsule.
Secure Mounting Mechanism
The mounting clasp provides a firm grip without damaging the finish of the instrument.

    AMT WS reviews

    WS Clarinet Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally closer to live clarinet miking.. I use this microphone for live performance of clarinet + live electronics. Finally I am able to be mobile and compact on the stage, not using two separate microphones (with so many holes sound source is practically everywhere in this kind of instrument). I hope this solution will also help to avoid feedback problems. Sound quality is great, but I am not expecting it to be 100% natural, since the lower microphone is pointing almost directly to the bell, getting very rich of low freqs sound. I think it will be best to combine it with wireless solution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Microphone I have purchased other microphones for the clarinet including a barcus berry piezo pickup and none have had the quality and dynamics of this microphone setup. It is very easy to install, although it did/does take a little playing with to get the best orientation. I am extremely happy with this purchase and would get it again. The preamp uses an AA battery, but does not work as well in this mode as if fed phantom power. It does add a little weight to the clarinet making me consider getting a neck strap because I don't want to get carpel tunnel as I use the mic for shows that can last a few hours at a time. There are also limited adjustments that can be made on this device itself. There are no volume controls nor treble/bass controls which can shape the sound as desired.
