K&K Meridian Pro External Guitar Microphone System
The unidirectional condenser Meridian Microphone is paired with the new Meridian Pro preamp that features all the controls you will ever need. 3 band EQ, phase switch, adjustable input gain, line out and balanced XLR active DI out all in one box.The mic sounds silky smooth with amazing feedback rejection and the convenience of an adjustable clamp that securely fits any acoustic guitar model.
The Meridian microphone has one serious advantage over an internal guitar mic. It is NOT inside the guitar. The true guitar sound logically happens outside the guitar body. Inside there are, aside from an excessive amount of bass frequencies, various sound reflections that do not represent the true tone of your instrument. An external mic captures the guitar sound as YOU hear it.
With our gooseneck design the mic can be precisely aimed. Point it more towards the soundhole for a bassier tone or towards the body/neck joint for a tighter/brighter sound. K&K’s special gooseneck design guarantees that the mic will stay solid in the position you put it. The 2 part clamp system is made from powder-coated stainless steel, well padded with non skid rubber on the inside and easily adjustable for different body depth.
We found that the Meridian mic allows for considerable volume even with small acoustic amps. It is the ideal addition for the player who wants to add a high quality microphone without any alteration to the instrument. Plus, one single Meridian Mic will serve multiple guitars! And, like any K&K product, you buy quality workmanship proudly made in Oregon USA. The Meridian Microphone System comes in a sturdy foam padded plastic transport case.
