B-band A1N-1470
since almost 10 years! on acoustic guitar

I never tried other models before, I've always had electro acoustic
and or classical guitars with embedded system

this is well above it all
was the sound of the guitar, period! with playing comfort,
and a completely natural dynamics

for me it is the perfect choice, unless you buy a martin gibson above 2000 euros with fishman system
there is nothing that can compete with such a micro

on the other hand, the downside is that if you put on an acoustic guitar, which was not designed to receive a piezo, you may have an imbalance between the bass and treble, as the risk of easel not be perfectly straight! and the sensor need absolute flatness to transmit at the same level notes on all the strings
therefore, we must do it by a luthier is better
this is the only problem I encountered with this micro
Otherwise, the sound is just right for the stage, zero feedback, and there is even a small volume knob which is placed in the rosette
consumption ridiculous energy, battery every two or three years
short, I changed my classic yamaha jet fighter and I defy anyone to have my sound on stage
with any guitar under 2000 euros

a remake

I brought up the microphone on a rather low-end guitar because I needed to do concerts, but it did not matter too much since the microphone can change the guitar at home.
I installed in November 2004. I did some concerts, but the wood has moved ... (Jim Harley power!). I go up on my next acoustic guitar, that I will take good quality!

Otherwise, the microphone is nickel. Of course, attention can make the clear sound of feedback, with the sound box, once we played a bit much.

What I like about this microphone is that it has a good output level and low blows. The sound is very precise, but return he really the sound of the guitar? It gives a color a little heavy for my taste for records, but it's great for concerts.

For cons, I do not know if it's the fault of my guitar, but I noticed a deficiency in the bass, you can catch up by mixing the sound from a microphone (SM57 for my part) added in rosette. For cons, I did not put panel preamp because it had to do an awful lot more hole in the guitar ...

This deficiency was found with the Korg PXR4.

I paid the pose, microphone, and a strap all for 190 euros. That's a lot a lot, I enjoyed myself, so I have no hesitation about the price. Besides, I should have done it myself, in the end.
Otherwise, if I had asked myself by taking it from Thomann, I would say value for money was very good.

I have no experience in electro-acoustic guitars. I know something bad to wood, not great in microphones.
I've played on Ovation, but I have not had much time to appreciate the quality of microphones and guitars.

In any case, this microphone seems to me much better than my electric guitar! So I find it very good. A fault: it is that the attachment strap will crack one of these days :-(

For the record, there is the perennial problem of breath. This microphone is not blowing much, it is mainly the PXR4 preamps, I think.

- Install a luthier acoustic guitar on an old form of "Dreadnought" about 4 years ago. Been using in concert.
- The most: the sound of the guitar is respect and I would even embellished. No feedback. In a ddi amp or direct into a PA system (via DI box or not) the sound is impeccable. No rglage, in my case the balance is perfect. Cons: no EQ, no volume knob (- 1 point). We can get away with a pedal insrant eq. To change the stack houses the indoor must dtendre strings (less than 1 point) but ... I change the battery once in four years, should not complain too much.
- I tried several mics including Dean Markley, Bill Lawrence, etc. ... see anything. The B-band surpasses them. The resulting sound is nothing to see (or hear plutt) either with an electro-acoustic. Here it is the acoustic sound of the guitar amplifier.
- The price is justified given me its got (150 + 50 for installation. Of memory. A good handyman can install itself.
- I would do it if I choose Rasht an acoustic but with a system that latest issue.

jeem78's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"attention while mounting"

B-band A1N-1470
Good evening
I use the B-band mounted on a guitar "Nylon" the 2 versions, with and without pre-amp, with pre-amp, the guitar is sacrificed "splint open final" this sensor is in my opinion the best, however the various problems that were encountered are related to poor understanding of how this type of microphone, a very specific preparation is to consider that some luthiers are able to manage, or incorrect operation of the system and results? ? This preparation is fundamental and basic system ..... very pleased to recommend ... ... ... merit award
I CDLT ....
