Have you ever bought an acoustic guitar because you love the way it sounded? Hopefully that’s what you’re looking for in an instrument, well that, and the way it feels when you play it. It’s always a bummer when you realize that if you want to play it at a show, you have to plug in that awful piezo or magnetic pickup that robs you and the audience of the true tone of your guitar.
Here is some great news. You now have a different option! The Acoustas GX1 is an amazing way to mic your acoustic guitar without needing to stand in front of a mic stand.
How It Works
The GX1 is a wireless mic that mounts comfortably inside your guitar allowing you and your guitar to sound your best. Don’t forget its wireless too, so you can play anywhere you want.
The receiver is compact and will fit easily on your pedal board, or right on top of your acoustic guitar amp. The best way to use it, of course, is to connect it directly to a PA if available, but even for street performers, you can’t go wrong with the GX1.
This system works great with acoustic guitars, lap steel acoustics, dobros, classical guitars, acoustic bass guitars, even guitarrons (ultimate mariachi!).
Mounting this mic takes about 30 seconds, and you don’t even have to make any modifications to your instrument.
Also, this new mic is a remarkable wireless solution for harmonica players, fitting right in the palm of your hand.
Record acoustic guitar tracks directly to a computer with a single USB wire connecting the receiver to the computer. No custom drivers are needed. Windows and Linux are currently supported with Mac support planned in the future.
The GX1 comes with everything you need: Mic/Transmitter, Receiver, Power Supply, and Mounting Bracket.
