NEW Improved Cortado MkII Contact Mic Released

Postby Zeppelin Design Labs » Fri Sep 09, 2016 5:14 pm

Zeppelin Design Labs has released the Cortado MkII, an improvement of our popular contact microphone. The Cortado MkII contains a litttle preamp circuit that balances and buffers the signal from the piezo transducer to match its impedance to that of your console or recorder. New in this release:
  • Extended low-end response
  • Adjustable bias for optimal performance
  • Noise floor lower than ever
  • More robust piezo sensor construction
The Cortado MkII requires phantom power, such as from the Espresso Portable Phantom Power Supply; look for its own thread on this forum.
Cortado MkII is available ready-to-use or as a DIY kit. Get it from Zeppelin Design Labs, Etsy or Reverb.
