OVERVIEW

Reproduces the natural sound of the acoustic piano.

The AMT M40 Acoustic Piano Microphone System is a bold new direction for microphones incorporating integrated circuit technology, an interchangeable chip which allows for multi-purpose use, and emulates many popular microphones with the advantages of its ultra compact size. The M40 Acoustic Microphone System includes the AMT M40 Microphone and the AP 40 Floor Preamp. The M40 Microphone system lets you reproduce the natural sound of the piano. Mono in design, the system allows for use even with the piano lid closed. It is capable of picking up subtle passages as well as sound pressure levels up to 141dB. The M40 microphone's signal can be split and frequencies rolled off in a specific way to create a stereo image.

The M40 Piano Microphone System features rugged construction of anodized aviation aluminum allowing it to withstand high impact while being lightweight and non-corrosive. The M40 has been designed for piano but works equally well in other applications such as boundary layer miking (conference, stage). The M-40 terminates to the AP 40 aluminum preamp with chip technology and can be powered by phantom power or 9v battery. Includes a hardshell Blo-mold protective case.

real sound of piano

By Kevin Kneeland

from Wyoming

Comments about Applied Microphone Technology AMT M40 Acoustic Piano Microphone System with AP40 Preamp:

Only downfall in my mind is how you have to take apart the box to replace battery. But that is really no big deal. Nothing is perfect .
Would be nice to be able to get to the 9V battery without a screwdriver, other than that, has everything it needs.
Amazing sound on the piano. I placed it right where they suggest in the picture. Just be sure to remember it requires a 9V and to get to it you have to take apart the box. Lame, but oh well.
Very good sound for price of mic.

Great Mic - Not Perfect

By ksuboy

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Applied Microphone Technology AMT M40 Acoustic Piano Microphone System with AP40 Preamp:

This has been a great mic - clear with a well-rounded tone; responsive and relatively "true." The cost is a little on the high side, IMO, especially since the direct box connector has come loose multiple times, requiring a minor repair and a major pain in the rear when a quick setup was needed. Also, after several years of use, the direct box died, requiring more than a few hours to troubleshoot and repair.All in all, though, it has been a good purchase.

Comments about Applied Microphone Technology AMT M40 Acoustic Piano Microphone System with AP40 Preamp:

I have been using this microphone for a variety of different events where the grand piano acoustically just doesn't cut it. If you are looking for a great microphone for your piano, please get this one.
