Welcome to MiniFlex: "Close Mic Amplification Systems"
Incorrect 2MIC Positioning
At MiniFlex we receive many concerns regarding the undesirable sound coming from the 2MIC – especially with regards to what may be referred to as “low end rumble”. This low end rumble is a direct result of the improper positioning of the mic elements within the body of the guitar.
"Featured Artist Series: Uwe Kropinski"
Uwe Kropinski, Germany, has provided us with an interesting video
playing a guitar built by
Guitars. What is particularly interesting is that the audio is
captured entirely from the video camera's internal mics.
You may see Uwe's performance in the following YouTube video.
"The New Model 16b"
The Model 16b - studio series for banjo, is a quick mount 2Mic that "has it all". Specifications for the Model 16b are the same as for our new Model 3 quick mount for guitar - only the mounting mechanism is different. For the Model 16b, we use our studio series mics with the widest & flattest frequency response, and include the option to create a mono line level signal, or a balanced XLR mic level signal.

Most "common knowledge" within the music industry
for amplifying acoustic guitars applies to pickups, which have been used
to amplify guitars for over 70 years. Using on-board - or close mic
installation of microphones is only about 30 years old, so knowledge
within the music industry is still catching up to advance of microphone
technology represented by the 2Mic design. When "pickup logic" is used
to process a 2Mic signal, sometimes the end result can be disappointing.
But when "microphone logic" is applied, the 2Mic will perform
This document will provide some basic information about how microphones and pickups operate. More important there is specific information about the 2Mic, so that you can apply "2Mic logic" to how you use your MiniFlex and get fantastic results in every application.
