AT A GLANCE:
- Internally mounted microphone combined with undersaddle element pickup
- Design allows for high gain before feedback and noise cancelling technology
- Featherweight control unit fits inside soundhole with Volume, Mix, and Phase controls
The featherweight microphone, each high-graded for ideal response, mounts to the underside of the bridge plate with simple peel-and-stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument. The microphone leverages the “pressure-zone” principle by positioning the capsule just 3mm from the surface of the top to hear the entire soundboard for even balance and tone. And the microphone’s proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts to use an internal microphone, Anthem employs noise canceling technology that rejects “boxy” reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patented minor miracle enables the mic to act as if it were outside of the guitar delivering a clear and open performance.
In a studio, you would have to use an entire rack of gear to achieve what they have built into the unit's tiny circuit board. Their engineers have created several “black box” circuit innovations that unlock the potential of the microphone. The first tightens the lower frequencies for a punchier attack with natural dynamics. The second maintains the microphone’s sweetness no matter how hard you play. The third innovation is an adjustable “presence” control that dials high frequency response perfectly for your guitar. Wrap all of this in all discrete, high-fidelity microphone along with the Element pickup and you have a world class microphone system as an integral part of your guitar anywhere you plug in.
The patented TRU•MIC carries the majority of the guitars’ frequency range while the Element Pickup carries the lowest frequencies
