The CQ preamp is 48 volt DIN Standard phantom-powered, with line-level balanced output. The preamplifier is built into the XLR plug which then feeds either one or two C-ducer Tape mics. The output from the CQ range is compatible with stage or studio mixing desks and any other equipment with 600 ohm balanced inputs and phantom power.
The CQS/8 comprises two CQ preamp/ 8” Tape combinations typically used on piano when a stereo signal is desired. It can also be used where two different instruments are to be miked, such as a pair of congas or two stringed instruments.
The CQS/8p is identical to the CQS/8 but with inline connectors so that the C-ducer mic can be left on the instrument but the main bulk of the cable disconnected.
The CQ2/8 is one CQ preamp with 2 x 8” Tapes, typically used on piano, where balanced line output and phantom power are needed but only a mono output is required.
The CQM/8 is one CQ preamp with one 8” Tape for use with guitar and many other instruments. (See our Instruments pages for more details).
Similarly the CQM/3 is one CQ preamp with one 3” Tape for use with violin and also many other instruments listed in our Instruments pages.
