K&K Sound Golden Bullet Upright Bass Microphone
The Golden Bullet URB is a condenser mic chosen specifically for its characteristics and performance with the double bass. This is not an "off-the-shelf" microphone, but one designed and custom built by K&K in Oregon. We were delighted to work with Bob Gollihur to finalize the selection of this specific unit, which combines great sound with excellent feedback resistance. It is unidirectional to help avoid rumble and undesirable bleed from other instruments.
Amazingly light and small, it is mounted on your bridge using self adhesive 3M Dual Lock fastener and positioned using its built-in six-inch gooseneck. And don't worry about undesirable effects due to the bridge mounting -- the complete unit weighs only about .25 ounces!
The Golden Bullet URB includes:
* Mic with 2 feet of wire, high quality 1/4" jack and a special string-mountable jackclip (clamps between A and D string between bridge and tailpiece).
* Preamp with a 1/4" input jack and XLR balanced output. This is the standard preamp that can be powered by a 9 volt battery or 12-48 volt phantom power. The preamp also provides the special 5-volt power the mic requires.
* On special request, a 1/4" line out preamp model is available (9-volt battey only). Please specify when ordering.
