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

Guitar store staff have better things to do than clean your instrument, so a well-loved but unsoiled 6-string like this is going to command a higher trade-in value than one that comes in covered in years of residue.

Believe it or not, you can boost the value of your instrument by making everyone's life a little easier … and cleaner!

There's an overwhelming amount of activity in the guitar market these days, and the sheer amount of demand has left some manufacturers struggling to keep up. But rather than wait around for stores to re-stock, more and more customers are shopping for used and vintage guitars. You might wonder, where do all those used guitars come from?

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
