The K&K Sound CXM5 preamp is the same preamp/power supply unit that is included with the CXM5 Saxophone Microphone. The CXM5 preamp works with the CXM5 Saxophone Microphone, as well as the Golden Bullet and Silver Bullet microphones. Not designed for use with other microphones. Unlike the preamp unit included with the Golden Bullet and Silver Bullet, this preamp unit includes a built in volume control. The CXM5 preamp supplies 5 volts of power for the condenser mic (microphone not included).
The CXM5 preamp is built with ultra low noise, quality Class A circuits and provides high grade pre-amplification to the active XLR balanced output. The box operates on minimum power consumption, and can be powered by either cable-supplied phantom power from your PA or mixer system, or a standard 9 volt battery (not included). A belt-clip mount is included. All parts were selected for best material value. K&K uses durable metal parts for roadworthy quality.
