Mini Clip-On Microphones for Acoustic Stringed Instruments
If you want to convey the natural timbre of your instrument to your audience, these mics are for you !
All are hand-made in North Carolina, USA. They provide a beautiful acoustic sound, much better than a pickup. All have very good gain-before-feedback and are reasonably priced.
Each mic is voiced for a specific instrument: bass, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, cello, and guitar.
It provides a natural acoustic sound -much better than a pickup – and up to 12 dB more gain-before-feedback than a stand-mounted mic.
It allows you freedom of movement on stage. Easy temporary mounting. Inconspicuous and rugged.
The mics are small and inconspicuous without any clumsy hardware. No modification of your instrument is needed.
Bartlett audio offers free tech support direct from the designer.
You can find in their website FAQ pages, reviews, audio samples, and articles on audio topics if you need further info.
The mic designer is Bruce Bartlett, who worked as a microphone engineer at Crown International and Shure Brothers for over 30 years.

“One of the best parts of my job is talking one-on-one with a customer – whether it’s a fiddle player, guitarist, sound engineer, or music director, it’s great to help them with their audio problems.” – Bruce Bartlett, manager/engineer
