Applied Microphone Technology release AMT P808 Microphone system at NAMM, designed for high SPL players.
(Published: January 26, 2012)
The AMT P808 is a bell mounted, high SPL clip-on microphone for trumpet, trombone and saxophones producing extreme SPL levels. Designed, manufactured by hand, and distributed by AMT in the USA. The system is intended to clip onto flanged bell instruments and intended for the player looking for an ‘on the bell' mounting system.
The P808 is the choice for professionals that play at high SPL levels and are looking for a bell-mounted microphone. The P808 includes all updated features like D.C.T. (Disconnect Cable Technology) with the ability to connect to the Wi5C creating a belt pack free wireless system.
The P808 in its stock configuration (P808) is the perfect choice for the player that needs a hard wired (non wireless) belt pack style setup. The setup includes the BP 45 belt pack preamp. The P808 is available in four versions. (P808, P808 Studio, P808W - Shure, P808 - Sennheiser) All of the microphones are identical and can be used wirelessly as well change between AMT's various preamps. The decision between the various models is determined when the end user would choose between wireless, hardwired, and or require both.
The latest P808 updates allow the player to easily change to and from AMT's various preamps while also allowing for direct connections to the Wi5C, Shure or Sennheiser wireless systems. With a change in a cable, convert the microphone from a beltpack style preamp over to a wireless setup quickly and easily. Cables sold separately.
The AMT P808 is an excellent choice for playing in louder environments such as "lead trumpet", and ‘rock n roll' saxophone where high SPL levels are reached. The P808 is intended for a principal artist, ensemble sections, or as a soloist. The microphone is suspended in a 4 point isolation ring reducing key and handling noise. Phantom power or 1 AA battery required for hardwired / beltpack use. The P808 studio requires phantom power or one 9 volt battery.
The P808 comes complete with the BP45 belt pack style preamp, case, and AMT disconnecting cable technology to allow the microphone to be used wireless with the AMT Wi5C, Shure or Sabine Wireless. Sennheiser cable sold separately.
The P808 Studio comes complete with the AP Studio preamp, case, and AMT disconnecting cable technology to allow the microphone to be used wireless with the AMT Wi5C. Shure, Sabine, and Sennheiser cables sold separately.
The P808W comes complete with microphone and cable for direct use with the AMT Wi5C wireless system OR for Shure and Sabine or Sennheiser. Order for wireless system to be used.
