The Ehrlund EAP Pickup (Acoustic Pickup) is a linear contact microphone for instruments with an acoustic sound box such as the guitar, violin, double bass and ethno-instruments. It is 100 % Swedish manufactured and based on the same know-how as other Ehrlund products.
A linear microphone means the pickup reproduces a flat frequency response. The EAP Pickup captures the vibrations in the acoustic instrument, which enables the microphone to deliver very good separation even in normally “impossible” environments where the other musicians are generating high sound levels on their respective instruments. The EAP Pickup has achieved very good results in test performances, even with incongruous combinations such as Heavy Metal and cello.
EAP Preamp, Phantom powered
Preamp for the EAP Pickup, powered from mixer or other equipment.
EAP phantom powered preamp is powered by 48 V from mixer or amplifier. This gives even better signal-to-noise ratio and higher output signal compared to the battery powered model. Otherwise, the design is the same as the battery powered model.
