New from Gold Tone, the ABS Banjo/Resonator Guitar Microphone system easily attaches to any banjo or resonator guitar in seconds and amplifies the true acoustic tone. The ABS-C is a condenser microphone and requires phantom power.
The ABS system is essential equipment for the performing banjoist or resonator player. By attaching a condenser microphone to the end of a small gooseneck cable, the ABS reliably captures the music you generate at the precise sweet spot where your instrument sounds the best. Attachment and adjustment for ideal placement is simple and easy. The ABS-C is shock mounted to prevent the introduction of extraneous vibrations. With no exposed wiring, the ABS-C can be transferred from one instrument to another in seconds. The ABS-C requires phantom power and connection to the sound system is accomplished with the included cable (¼ ” TRS to XLR). Includes a soft carring case.
The ABS-C condenser microphone was added about a year after the wonderful success of Gold Tone's ABS dynamic microphone. A condenser microphone requires additional voltage to work, either phantom power or a built-in battery in the microphone (often found with inexpensive condenser mics). Most acoustic instrument amplifiers have the capability to supply phantom power, as do most PA systems. If your amp or PA system does not have phantom power capabilities, there are phantom power units available for usually less than $50 (Rapco, Horizon, Peavey, etc). The ABS-C system includes the necessary 3-pin cable needed to plug in.
Note: The ABS-2 Preamp is not compatible with the ABS-C condenser microphone.
Advantages of The ABS-C
Much more gain...I tell folks, with the phantom power circuitry, the coil of the mic is much more active resulting in at least twice the gain of any dynamic mic. Using the "C" your gain levels with pre-amped guitars and vocal condensers will be equal, which a sound engineer will find much more convenient.
