Mini Mono SP (Contact Microphone / Piezo Transducer Pickup)
The Mini Mono is a contact microphone designed for use with instruments, devices, and setups that feature a mini 1/8” jack (3.5 mm). It operates the same way as our other plug-in contact mics (such as the Plug Ugly) - all that is required is a 1/8” cable and one’s imagination!
The Mini Mono is terminated to a 3.5 cm brass piezo (roughly the size of a US quarter). A thick blob of silicone adheres the 1/8” jack to the microphone element, ensuring a snug and rugged fit. Last, a coat of rubber heat shrink provides a final layer of protection.
Mini Mono can straddle countless applications: from amplifying objects, using with cassette recorders, or adding an external contact mic to eurorack systems. Keep in mind that this mic lives up to its namesake and is in fact, monophonic.
Check out this brief demo. In the video, our brave Test Dept. Lad utilizes the SP via fuzzy gloop, with headachey scrapes conjured on a kinda busted fiddle. That’s how we do it here, heh heh.
Cables, noodles, and doodles not included.
