Miniature condenser mic perfect for both vocals and acoustic guitar.
Natural and articulate vocal reproduction when clipped on with the included Lavalier clip and equally impressive guitar reproduction when used with the included instrument adapter. Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sound from the sides and rear. Switchable low-frequency roll-off minimizes rumble and boominess. Gold-plated XLRM-type connector resists corrosion and provides faultless signal. Operates on battery or phantom power. 6' cable permanently attached between the mic and power module.

Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 70 Cardioid Condenser Lavalier / Instrument Microphone:
Im using this Audio Technica PRO 70 Condenser mic as part of a dual source system its positioned inside my archtop jazz guitar. The two signals (pickup + mic) are mixed together. The mic has a power pack is about the size of a Blackberry phone, therefore, no phantom power is required. I dont have any feedback problems because my amp is positioned about 7 feet away on my left. I dont use a floor monitor. Im currently using heavy EQ filtering in order to get the right blend of highs and lows between the pickup and mic. The Pro 70 brings out the natural acoustic qualities of my guitar that gives it a wonderful clear, clean, bright voice even when the strings are old and dull! I just ordered a second Pro 70 mic that will be used on another guitar. Feedback can be a major issue with any mic, therefore, many guitarists, like John Jorgenson, will mount their Pro 70 mic inside the instrument (see John Jorgensons Discussion Forum, 2007.) With this type of arrangement you will really need some kind of EQ filtering. (I actually have two EQs daisy-chained together.) Also, you may experience some unwanted finger squeak. The EQ takes cleans up some of this and Ive learned to improve my fingering technique with more purposeful movements to minimize unwanted fingersqueek noise,. I suggest using some kind of preamp, like a small mixer, for example, with this mic. And remember, the Pro 70 requires an XLR input. The AA battery seems to last forever the last time I went to changed it, it still had a full charge!
