Designed for Dobro style, spider-bridged, instruments, the RG-03M is an easily installed, non-invasive, combination of an interior mounted powered condenser mic with the proven RG-03 pickup. The combination delivers a more rounded, fuller sound with good feedback rejection. The RG-03M adds an internally mounted powered condenser microphone and a 2 channel Mini Pre 2 outboard belt clipable preamp to the outstanding RG-03 to provide unparalleled sound quality.
Revolutionary - The RG-03pickup sensor is installed on the underside of the resontator cone. The M powered condenser mic attaches to the well wall with special mounting putty or with one of the supplied 3M VHB adhesive pads. The microphone mounting also has a through hole so that it can be attached to the well wall with a screw, if desired.
The Mini Pre 2 is a two channel outboard belt clipable preamp. Channel One is used to preamp the RG-03 piezo sensor. Channel Two provides both the power for the condenser mic and preamps the mic signal as well. Input into the Mini Pre 2 is via a stereo 1/4" jack. Output from the Mini Pre 2 is via a mono 1/4" jack. The basic RG-03M system comes prewired to a high quality endpin jack. This jack may be mounted through the end block of an instrument, providing a strap button or it may be used as a standard output jack and mounted through the side of an instrument. If you don't want to drill any visible holes in your instrument, the endpin jack can also be used as a 'hanging jack' and mounted hanging from the existing strap button. The output from the jack is stereo (2 separate signals) and an 18" long stereo 1/4" cable is provided to take the signals from the output jack to the Mini Pre 2.
