The AMT VSi Microphone System for Violin comes complete with the Inline preamp, a carry pouch, and the AMT disconnecting cable technology to allow the microphone to be used wireless with the AMT Wi5IIC, Shure Line 6, or Sabine Wireless (sold separately). Sennheiser cable is sold separately.
The system is intended to clip onto a standard violin. This is an ultra-miniature, feather weight low profile condenser microphone specially designed for the Violin, Viola, and Mandolin. The microphone attaches to the Violin, Viola, and Mandolin with a clamp designed to be solid on the instrument without harming or dampening the natural sound or vibrations.
This is suitable for the professionals looking for a natural sound reproduction from a clip-on microphone. It includes D.C.T. (Disconnect Cable Technology) with the ability to connect the Wi5C creating a belt pack free wireless system.
The entire microphone and mounting mechanism is designed to clamp securely to the body of the instrument without damage to 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 itself is specifically designed for the smaller instruments in the string family. The microphone provides pure tonal reproduction while being unobtrusive. The reproduction of natural sound of the instrument is the goal.
The system allows the player to easily change to and from AMT’s different preamps while also allowing for direct connections to the Wi5IIC, Shure, Sabine, Line 6, or Sennheiser wireless systems (sold separately). With a change of cable, you can convert your LSi from a wired Inline style preamp over to a wireless setup quickly and easily. Cables are sold separately.
This is a good choice for soft to loud music for a principal artist, ensemble setting, or as a soloist. The microphone is suspended in a 4-point isolation ring reducing key and handling noise. Phantom power is required for use with the VSi models (Inline preamp).
