The AMT S19 is Applied Microphone Technology’s microphone Tail Piece mounting cello microphone system. Designed, manufactured by hand, and distributed by AMT in the USA. The system is intended to clamp onto the TAIL PIECE of a cello allowing for quick and easy removal for traveling or when the microphone is no longer needed.
The S19 is the # 1 choice for top professionals that look for the most natural sound reproduction possible from a clip on microphone. Sonically the same at the famed S18C, the clamp is up graded to a tail piece mounting system. The S19 includes updated features includes D.C.T. and the ability to use AMT’s various preamps if needed.
The AMT S19 is an electret-condenser microphone that has been specifically designed for cello. All of the parameters that are problematic for string instruments have been addressed during an intensive study on the sonic characteristics of the instrument.
The first priority was to be able to get the most gain before feedback. The S19 uses a very tight pattern to give a high rejection to surrounding noise, at the same time reproducing accurately the subtleties of the cello.
As placement is especially important with an instrument that has a fine finish and varying dimensions, this microphone's attachment mechanism is designed to secure the mic to the tailpiece of the cello while allowing the gooseneck to be placed in different positions taking seconds to attach. The attachment mechanism is spring-loaded and can be attached to the tailpiece with one hand.
Manufactured with lightweight aluminum to keep the mass low yet extremely strong, this microphone will remain durable through many years of use. The flex arm, unlike any other microphone system on the market, is easy to position yet retains it's placement throughout the most active of performances.
**Custom built tail piece systems may or may not fit. See the S18 see if your setup includes a custom or extra wide tail piece.
