Anyone who has tried to put a standard, good quality mic inside an acoustic guitar knows that it really does not sound very good. Typically there is an over-emphasis of the low end which becomes ‘woofy’ and indistinct. This is often accompanied by a overall ‘boxy’ or nasal quality.
We have tailored our microphone to compensate for these phenomenon. After a considerable research effort and some trial and error we have designed an elegant, rugged microphone that sounds excellent when used inside of an acoustic guitar.
A sophisticated mic preamplifier is mounted in the clip. (click on the clip for more information)
The Mic is popular with musicians who like to play percussion on the body of the guitar.
A simple, effective way to
enhance your sound.
"When Playing live on stage there is only one way to go. Highlander is it.
By including an optimized mic preamp in the clip, Highlander is able to offer major sound quality advantages (because the capsule and preamp are perfectly matched) and assure compatibility with a wide range of sound systems and amps that don't have mic power or phantom power. This mic is excellent value for money when you consider that most mics in this price range do not include an integrated, hi fidelity preamplifier.
The Mic simply clips on to a back brace.
The Internal Mic can be powered directly from the iP-2, or in the case of the stand alone version via its own 9V Battery.
