A single Barcus-Berry 4000 Planar Wave System does the job that would otherwise take several microphones and a multi-channel mixer to achieve. Best yet, it attaches easily to either side of the soundboard without holes to drill or tools. Features include active direct box which includes a 9-volt battery or phantom power, 1/4" monitor output with variable level, balanced, XLR main out with ground lift and output pad switch (0db/-12db). Includes piezo crystal for piano/harp.
Unique sensor technology reproduces full frequency range with perfect amplitude balance, superior feedback rejection, and complete isolation from ambient sounds and even keyboard and pedal noise!
The Barcus-Berry Planar Wave preamp safely and easily attaches to either side of the soundboard without tools - or holes to drill! Features a 1/4" monitor output with variable level, XLR main out with ground lift and -12db output pad switch. Operable with either 9 Volt DC battery (included) or phantom power. The 4000 is preferred by Instrumentalist Brian Culbertson.
Planar Wave Sensor Technology
The Planar Wave Piano and Harp System represents a significant breakthrough in transducer technology. The sensor employedis essentially non-responsive to those vibrations which are normal to the major surface planes of the instrument soundboard.It is, however, highly sensitive to transverse energy waves traveling in the plane defined by the soundboard and is thus ableto provide full-spectrum frequency response and perfect amplitude balance across the entire instrument while achieving anexcellent degree of isolation from ambient sounds together with outstanding feedback rejection. The system can be quickly andeasily installed on any piano or harp and can be just as simply removed without leaving any visible evidence of its use. No tools are required for installation.
