When and microphone pickups up sound it does not always pickup the sound from all directions equally, this is by design. An omni-directional microphone will pick up sound from all directions so it doesn't matter in which direction it is pointed. Microphpne that pickup sound in one direction more than in other directions are defined by the relative sensitivity in the different directions. These polar patterns, as they are called, are quite well defined mathematically however often the micropphne does not fully meet these mathematical definitions so are often simply called directional microphones.
Accusound supply a directional microphoine that closely meets the definition of a hyper-carioid polar pattern. Simply put this means the microphone will pickup sound much better at the front compared to the back but also if in a reverberant or non directional sound filed will pickup less ambient sound that a simple carioid polar patternmicrophone. The reason Accusound supply this pattern is because you benifit from the difference between from and back response but you also benefit from better imunity to feedback as less ambient sound is pickedup.
For a fully explanation please see our information pages on microphones.
The microphone system for accordions consists of two flexible neck directional (hyper-cardioid) microphones.
They are fitted to the top of the instrument using small plastic discs with clips attached.
These discs may be fixed to the accordion by a self-adhesive backing or by an industrial type Velcro.
Depending on the construction of your accordion, mounts are available which me be attached to your shoulder strap mounts.
The microphones clip into these mounts allowing the user to adjust the microphone positions on either side of your instrument.
The flexible necks may be bent to permit exact positioning of the microphone to achieve exactly the sound you want.
The microphones may be unclipped easily between songs and the whole system may be removed in a few seconds leaving only the Velcro pads.
The system comes complete with a preamplifier which may be battery or phantom powered and then connected via an XLR cable to your mixer/amplifier.
