The K&K Sound Golden Bullet URB is a condenser mic that has been designed and purpose-built for upright bass. K&K Sound worked with Bob Gollihur to finalize the selection of this specific unit, which combines great sound with excellent feedback resistance. The mic is unidirectional to help avoid rumble and undesirable bleed from other instruments. This model has an XLR output on the preamp.
The Golden Bullet Microphone is amazingly light and small (less than 1 ounce!), and clips easily to your bridge using a self-adhesive dual-lock fastener. A six-inch gooseneck allows for easy and sturdy positioning. The jack mounts between the A and D strings below the bridge. The entire system is easily removable.
The Golden Bullet URB includes the Golden Bullet URB Microphone with 2 feet of shielded cable prewired to a high quality 1/4" jack and a special mounting clip that clamps between the A and D strings, between the bridge and tailpiece. A specially designed preamp is included to provide the 5-volt power required by the condenser microphone, as well as to increase the signal strength to match any amplifier, PA system or mixer board. This model includes an XLR output on the preamp, and can be powered by 12-48 volts phantom power provided by your amp, PA or mixer.
Note: The Golden Bullet microphone will not operate directly from phantom power, it is powered by the included Golden Bullet preamp. Plugging the Golden Bullet microphone directly into a phantom powered jack will most likely damage the microphone and will void your warranty.
