2 IN 1: THE NIRVANA OF MICROS-ROSACE ALL STYLES (OR ALMOST)

Jules Pige, 25.01.2016
I have mounted this microphone on two parlors 12 frets with wide neck:

- a BluesMaster Epihone 00 over 18 years old

- Recording King Mahogany Massive 000 recent Chinese V-handle but excellent

I did not want to distort the Lutherie of these two instruments and I had enough of the recurrent problems of batteries to change at the last moment and of the sound cardboard of the piezo and too colorful LR Baggs.

This microphone has a double advantage for me, beyond that the capacitors of the preamp recharges in 60 seconds for a range of 6 to 8 hours (3 good sets):

- In acoustic mode on a Fishman Loudbox, it is of a rare fidelity, perfectly balanced, in all styles of play, strumming, picking, arpege, even jazz and gypsy, without complicated equalization, just sensitive to change of play.

- In electric mode, with a small tube-wired preamp-booster on a transistor acoustic amp or on a Vox AC 30 or a Bugera or a Fender 30, my little parlors behave like vintage electric guitars, like the Gretsh 60 's.

Amazing, an extraordinary grain, sensitive to attack and style of play. With my little Chi-Wah-Wah and my Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster (with bitmo kit) I can switch from clear sound to crunch sound or saturation Bass double-coil type Marshall, Mesa Boogie with a single Parlor, an acoustic amp or a tube amp.

All this is possible thanks to its only defect: this microphone does not take up or very little the vibrations of the body in percussive mode, which also limits all problems of feedback.

I highly recommend this purchase for purists and I draw your attention to the first microphones nickel-plated rechargeable nano capacitors that MISI has just released but that I have not yet tried:

A combination of the two for the percussive play should be a killing.

Since there is no more the pretty, golden predecessor model, I have decided for the Magpie. I use the pickup in combination with a microsystem (fishman ellipse matrix blend) in stereo and am thrilled. The MI-SI has a warm basic tone with little output, so it is not an aggressive sounding pickup. This does not mean he can not get through! On my amp (Acus 8) he sounds a bit too warm in neutral, so I did something I did not do at any acoustic picks, and gave a good set of highs in the EQ, which so far no pickup with me so well processed Has (feedback, sharp sound) and the overall sound is ideal to make him pregnant with effects, he just rushes a tiny bit. The strings also sound pleasantly balanced, everything from a single piece, with which one can also like to overdrive the times and in exceptional cases a beautiful surprise on the acoustics experienced.

Good, shapable sound and basic sound, but only with micsystem "real"
