The Schatten RG-03M KIT is an upgrade for existing RG-03 owners that adds the M-Series microphone and the Mini-Pre 2 dual channel belt-clip preamp. This kit will convert an existing RG-03 installation to a full RG-03M system. Also works with other passive resonator pickup systems. Pickup not included.
The M-Series condenser mic attaches to the well wall with Schatten's special mounting putty or with one of the supplied 3M VHB adhesive pads. The microphone mounting also has a through hole so that it can be attached to the well wall with a screw, if desired.
The Mini-Pre 2 is a two channel outboard belt-clip preamp. Channel One is used to preamp the RG-03 piezo sensor. Channel Two provides both the power for the condenser mic and acts as a preamp for the mic signal as well. Input into the Mini Pre 2 is via a stereo 1/4" jack. Output from the Mini Pre 2 is via a mono 1/4" jack.
The RG-03M KIT includes a high quality TRSS stereo endpin jack. This jack may be mounted through the end block of an instrument, providing a strap button or it may be used as a standard output jack and mounted through the side of an instrument. If you don't want to drill any visible holes in your instrument, the endpin jack can also be used as a 'hanging jack' and mounted hanging from the existing strap button. The output from the jack is stereo (2 separate signals) and an 18" long stereo 1/4" cable is provided to take the signals from the output jack to the Mini Pre 2. Some soldering required to connect the existing pickup and mic to the jack.
