HIGH FIDELITY DYNAMIC MICROPHONE

Microphone!High Fidelity Dynamic Microphone for Concertinas, Accordions and Bandoneons.

Greatly enhance the amplified sound of your concertina with a dynamic microphone. Many concertina manufacturers and technicians install this internal microphone in concertinas for professional and novice musicians as well as for the weekend hobbyist. This modern microphone design eliminates the squeak and squawk that exists with many of the old fashioned crystal microphones.

Once installed, this microphone plugs directly into an XLR (three pin) amplifier input, or simply use the included impedance matching transformer and plug into an amplifier with a 1/4 inch (TS) mono input. With this package you can plug your instrument into just about any type of amplifier or mixing board.

These high quality dynamic microphones feature a cardioid (uni-directional) polar pattern; a frequency response from 80 Hz to 12,000 Hz; an output impedance of 600 ohms (+/- 30 percent) at 1,000 Hz; and a sensitivity of -72 dB (+/- 3 dB).

Complete instructions are included with each microphone. Installation requires the use of simple hand tools and a soldering iron. Contact information for free support from a professional technician is provided to each Buyer.

The complete package of a high fidelity dynamic microphone, internal 1/4 inch jack, durable 10-foot long cable with 1/4 inch (TS) and XLR connectors, and an impedance matching transformer (XLR to 1/4 inch adaptor) is only $92.00. Shipping and handling are free for destinations within the United States.

If you already have the necessary XLR connector, XLR cable and impedance matching transformer, you can purchase the dynamic microphone alone for $60.00. Shipping and handling is free for destinations within the United States. Please note that this microphone will not operate correctly using the 1/4 inch high-impedance amplifier input. You must use the XLR low-impedance input, or the impedance matching transformer that is included with the purchase of the Microphone Kit.
