Topic: GuitarJack Recommended Microphones
While GuitarJack does not come with a microphone, it will work with any un-powered dynamic microphone, eg. Shure SM-57, SM-58, EV RE-20, Sennheiser MD-421, etc. An XLR to 1/4" cable or adapter will be required. A low-Z to hi-Z impedance adapter is NOT required.
GuitarJack does NOT provide phantom power, but it can be used with mono or stereo battery powered condenser microphones.
Sonoma Wire Works has tested GuitarJack with the following battery powered condenser mics:
Rode NT4 ($899 MSRP) - stereo XY condenser microphone with two externally biased 1/2 capsules with gold sputtered diaphragms. Phantom power or 9V battery operation. Doug Wright, Sonoma Wire Works' CEO, uses the Rode NT4.
AKG C1000S ($399 MSRP) - cardioid condenser microphone, great for mobile recording or live sound. Phantom or battery power.
Sony ECM719 ($89.99 MSRP) - one point stereo microphone.
