MiniFlex2Mic Soundhole Microphone - model 2
The MiniFlex Model 2 is a externally mounted high quality, low feedback, dual microphone system. Attachment is simple and requires no modification of the guitar.
“The 2Mic design attempts, as much as possible within the confines of a guitar body, to record a three-dimensional sound…” Ken says. “The first two dimensions are created by each individual mic, both mechanically and electronically, and the third dimension is created by how the 2Mic design processes these two signals.”
The MiniFlex 2Mic Model 2 has a strap button attachment device attaches to the guitar strap buttons at the heel and tail block. The dual mounted microphones are then placed inside the guitar through the sound hole.
This device installs in approximately one minute on to any guitar.
The Model 2 is powered by a single AAA battery, and includes a slide volume control on the mic assembly. Both mics are mounted on to a single gooseneck that slides easily into the sound hole of the guitar.
Frequency response is 80-15K Hz, with a mid range impedance of 3500 ohms.
The Model 2 is pre-equalized to remove most of the mid to low frequency boom that occurs when amplifying acoustic guitars.
The Model 2 is batteries should be changed every 1-2 years depending on use. A significant drop in output volume will indicate that the batteries are low and need to be changed. A high quality PA system will provide the best possible sound quality and feedback control. For most PA systems, use the “line input” with a standard 1/4″ mono guitar cable. Or use the 1/4″ – XLR adapter into the mic input or snake.
Many guitarists find that microphones - external or internal - offer the most natural sounding way to amplify their acoustic guitars, but the potential for feedback often limits their use in performance situations. Ken Donnell, MiniFlex Microphones' founder, has been perfecting his internal-microphone designs for more than 20 years - his latest design, appropriately named the "2Mic," is intended to both reduce feedback and improve sound quality. The two-microphone 2Mic system is currently available in three different models. Model 1 is meant for any guitar with an endpin jack, Model 2 installs without modification in any guitar with a soundhole, while Model 4 gives the user the option to add another acoustic pickup, piezo or magnetic, alongside the 2mic without having to drill a second output jack.
