“I can only describe your cello microphone as superb! I have been using it for a year now, and it has been a delight for me and any sound engineer I have encountered. I just came back from a twenty-seven-concert-tour around Mexico, and despite the fact I encountered the most challenging of different sound settings, your mic always saved the performance. I own a fine cello made by Ann Cole, and it pours pure sonic honey, and your mic proyects it loud and clean. Thank you so much for that. The search is over! AMT rules acoustic.” – Jorge Mendoza
