My happiness for the acoustic guitar

Bernard227, 26.01.2017
This is what I use to sound my acoustic guitar in a church in small musical group configuration.

The sound is well captured, with a good timbre and good dynamics: it really sounds acoustic guitar in the amp. No saturation problem, no need to correct the timbre: powerful bass and sharp crystalline as on my natural sound. I have little feedback (but still a little, do not put the amp too in the legs).

I appreciate the conversion module in XLR signal: 1. the sound is clean without interference 2. we can fix the module on the desk of the partitions, it is convenient. 3. The battery lasts a long time. 4. you have an ON / OFF button (low cut) that makes it easy to master the instrument in a celebration. That said, I would also have liked a volume control button.

Everything is nickel at the manufacturing level, but you have to pay attention to the clip of fixation that one slips in the table of the guitar. After two years, mine has deteriorated, the green moss has taken off a bit, so it's difficult to put it. So handle it carefully.

That said, I'm so happy with the product that I just bought a 2nd one to be able to play with other guitarists!

I really recommend to guitarists. For other uses, I do not know.

Good decision

09.07.2016
After a long research I decided to use the AT 831b. Competitors were the AT Pro70 and Prodipe GL 21. Other products were too expensive for me.

The acoustic instruments (mainly guitars) sound very good but also voice (> video cut) is very well represented.

The Prodipe fell out of the choice since I wanted an integrated phantom power and with the purchase would be the price approximately the same. Compared to the PRO 70 the 831b has no fixed microcable and a better frequency response. The storage box I find also useful as simple Nylontaschen.

The Harley Benton Customline CLA-15MCE Westerguiter sounds fantastic with the integrated pickup plus the AT 831b!

The processing is high quality. The microphone is recommended by many guitarists. Having the AT 831b in the arsenal is no mistake.
