Mills microphones are a well-kept secret among professional acoustic musicians.
These microphones are produced in Nashville, TN and are used by a number of country,
bluegrass and folk recording artists. As Joe Mills says, these mics are "ear
tested and picker approved".
Mills mics are unusually high quality , internal mount electret condenser
microphones which can be used alone or in combination (stereo hookup) with other kinds of
transducer style pickups.
NOTE: Mills microphones are shipped as a "bare bones" system. That is, it comes packaged with the microphone and an adjustable clip. The 1/4" jack required for complete installation is sold separately*. This is an electret condenser microphone, a power source is not included and must be installed internally or supplied from an outside source (e.g., 6-15 volts from a Fishman blender, Rane or Pendulum pre-amp, etc.) OR by using the Phantom Power interface described below, if you are connecting to a mixing or PA board or microphone pre-amp with phantom power. We can provide an external 9v power supply interface box to custom fit your needs (see below)***.
Professional installation is advised. If you have further questions please contact us by email. Please contact us for information about violin mounting.
