The MSS6000 is a professional microphone and preamp summation system designed primarily for amplifying stringed instruments such as violin, cello and bass in an orchestral setup or other large events.
A single MSS6000 system provides control of up to ten sound sources, reducing an entire section of ten down to two channels on a mixing console, thus freeing up many useful and costly channels on the stage box and the console. The whole system is powered by two channels of 48 V phantom power.
The complete system consists of five Stereo Satellite Boxes, one Master Sum Box, ten Miniature Microphones (4061), five MSS6000 cables, ten Microphone Holders for Strings and ten Universal Surface Mounts, all supplied in a durable Samsonite briefcase.
The system is pre-equalized with hi- and lo-cut for sound reinforcement applications.
Also available as MSS6000-E without the Miniature Microphones
