The micro A1 is generally used in addition to the contact microphone. It is a very small microphone with a design studied to be placed as close as possible to the sound source for more gain, less feedback and less transplanting of ambient noise. Particularly suitable for acoustic training when used alone, it faithfully and very naturally reproduces the sound of your instrument with precision, dynamics and allows comfortable return levels on stage, without a microphone stand. In combination with a contact microphone, it brings fidelity, air, precision in the sound, generally reserved for the facade. It is usually placed inside, under the bridge.
