Popular Brands of Guitar Microphones

Jun 18, 2008
Guitar microphones come in a variety of setups. They are intended to be used with equipment made for microphones. The concept is very simple. A microphone is meant for a PA system and not for a guitar amplifier.

The units will work to a degree in a guitar amplifier and then we hear the full potential of the instrument. Almost all the manufacturers provide the facilities for the acoustic guitar player to capture the most natural sound in a live or recording setting.

Guitar microphones from famous brands

AMT is one of the pioneers in the manufacture of various equipment for musical instruments. AMT also pioneers in manufacturing some of the best guitar microphones. AMT has engineered different models in order to fit into the needs or playing applications that acoustic guitarists might require.

Both S15G and S3G are available in the popular BP or belt pack version and are also available in the Studio setup as well. The S15G is a low-profile condenser microphone that has a cardioid pattern which gives it an advantage over most guitar microphones in the market.

The element as well as the mounting clamp is designed for the instrument. It is rugged construction of anodized aviation aluminum which makes it highly durable, while keeping it lightweight and non-corrosive. The microphone is attached to the side of the instrument, and is suspended in a 4 point isolation ring reducing handling noise.

The S3G is a unique, low profile condenser microphone that can only be used with an acoustic guitar that has a sound-hole under the strings. This microphone incorporates an omni pattern to capture the sound from inside the guitar. It is suitable for use in quieter applications. The AMT S3G features a flexible gooseneck, allowing the player to position the microphone for the best possible tone reproduction.

Wireless guitar microphones are widely used nowadays and some of the leading brands have come up with great wireless microphones with enviable features. One of the renowned brands in microphone manufacturing is NADY. Advanced features of the Nady DKW-1 wireless guitar microphone system include high-band VHF operation for interference-free performance and an operating range of more than 500 feet line of sight. Advanced compound circuitry is installed for a wide dynamic range so it would not overload the system with loud inputs.

The Nady DKW-8 GT wireless system represents an unprecedented advantage in a single-channel UHF instrument system with interference-free operation in any application or locale on select UHF frequencies from 794-805 Mhz.

Shure is another famous brand which pioneers in wireless technology and instrument equipment. The Shure PG14 Performance Gear Wireless Guitar System includes the PG4 Diversity Receiver, PG1 Bodypack Transmitter, and WA302 Instrument Cable for use with guitar, bass guitar, and other instruments with 1/4 inch outputs.
The AKG WMS 40 Pro Dual Guitar System includes the SR 40 Dual receiver, a pair of PT 40 Transmitters, and a pair of MKG L cables. It is the best for 2-channel applications. The transmitters each operate for 30 hours off a single AA size battery.
