The AMT WS is Applied Microphone Technology’s flagship double microphone system for Clarinet. Designed, manufactured by hand, and distributed by AMT in the USA. The system is intended to clip onto standard Bb Clarinet’s.
The WS is the # 1 choice for top professionals that look for the most natural sound reproduction possible from a clip on microphone. All versions of the LS now include updated features including D.C.T. (Disconnect Cable Technology) with the ability to connect the Wi5IIC creating a belt pack free wireless system.
The WS in it’s stock configuration is the perfect choice for the player that needs a hard wired (non wireless) belt pack style setup. The LS ships in five models. (WSi, WS, WS Studio, WSW – AMT / Shure / Sabine / Line 6, & WSW – AMT / Sennheiser) All of the microphones are identical and all can also be used wirelessly. The decision between the versions comes when one would choose between wireless, hardwired, and / or require both.
The latest WS updates allow the player to easily change to and from AMT’s different preamps while also allowing for direct connections to the Wi5IIC, Shure, Sabine, Line 6 or Sennheiser wireless systems. With a change in a cable, convert your WSi, WS or WS Studio from a wired belt pack / DI style preamp over to a wireless setup quickly and easily or choose the WSW which ships without a preamp and includes the cable ready for the chosen wireless. Cables sold separately.
The AMT WS is an excellent choice for soft to loud music for a principal artist, ensemble setting, or as a soloist.
