The guitar microphone designed for acoustic guitarists offers natural sound and low feedback.

Elkhart, IN (June, 16 2010) -- Newly designed for acoustic guitarists is a microphone that provides hi-fi sound while rejecting feedback. The Guitar Mic Pro by Bartlett Microphones is a pro-quality miniature condenser mic that attaches inside an acoustic guitar for sound reinforcement and recording. It is intended to convey the timbre of the instrument accurately to the audience.

The mic mounts on the front surface of a guitar just inside the sound hole. Two sticky Velcro pads are supplied for mounting. This placement results in high volume from the PA speakers, and it isolates the mic from other instruments.

A microphone mounted inside the sound hole normally sounds boomy, but the frequency response of the Guitar Mic Pro rolls off in the low frequencies to compensate. The result is a natural, non-boomy tone. Frequency response is claimed to be very smooth from 80 Hz to 20 kHz.

Easy to install, the USA-made Guitar Mic Pro includes an endpin jack and a detachable phone-to-XLR cable.

MSRP: $249

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
