Good product, quick shipping. I'm all smiles.
It work great. I bought this to enable me to plug a mic cable into my guitar amp to play my harmonicas through my amp. I use a Pignose G60VR with a Shure SM-57 mic with Lee Oscar harmonicas. Great combination!
No noise or loss of mic signal strength.
Fairly priced and built to last.

This adapter will not change the impedance from the level that comes from a microphone to a line level. In other words, you can't just put this on the end of a mic cable and plug the mic into something that calls for a line level, such as a guitar amp or a mixer. You cannot use this, for instance, to run a harmonica mic into an amp. To do that, you need the version of this that is also an impedance transformer, which costs a little more.

Evil Product!

By Greg Heumann / BlowsMeAway

from Geyserville, CA

Comments about American Recorder Technologies XLR Female to 1/4" Male Mono Adapter:

Look - you can't just hook a low impedance mic to a high impedance amp - you lose a lot of the mic's output. It will also render the volume control on an Audix Fireball or blowsmeaway.com volume control useless. And High-Z XLR cables are wired 2 different ways - either "pin 2 hot" or "pin 3 hot". How is this thing wired? No info! There MAY be a legitimate use for this product but know what you're doing when you buy it!

This does what it should do.

By TheAutomaton

Comments about American Recorder Technologies XLR Female to 1/4" Male Mono Adapter:

There is a legitimate use for this product. It is *not* to simply plug a mic-level signal into a line-level input. Duh. It is for connecting an XLR mic preamp *output* to an unbalanced line-level TS input. (If your XLR cables are wired 3-pin hot, get different equipment. That configuration is illegitimate).I plug a balanced Rane MS1S preamp output on XLR cable through this adapter into my unbalanced TS mixer inputs and it works like a charm.

Comments about American Recorder Technologies XLR Female to 1/4" Male Mono Adapter:

This adapter is perfect for feeding a small amp or monitor speaker from a mixer with XLR outputs--which is the intended use for this device.

    Originally I was going to purchase a cable to do the same thing this converter does for 1/3 of the price. If you already have a good XLR around, this is the way to go.

        Best to have at least a few of these handy in case you run out of XLR inputs on your mixing board, or if you need to convert XLR to1/4 inch inputs. These little darlings with save you some headaches. Also best to have a few Tip-Ring-Sleeve (TRS) converter adapters as well. I carry 4 of each type and at a recent gig these converters saved me.
