INTEGRAL AT NAMM 2018

An ‘Analogue’ Close Cab Miking System for acoustic, bass and electric guitars.

The SamSystems “INTEGRAL” Close Cab Miking System delivers the true, balanced analogue output from a guitar cab or combo’s speaker, via an XLR connector to the mixing desk, monitors and FOH PA, eradicating many of the time consuming and annoying setbacks associated with traditional close cab miking methods. 

The classic ‘microphone on a stand’ format has been the tried and tested formula of miking up a guitar cab or combo for the last 60 plus years. That’s fine, it works, but there are many pitfalls and hurdles that guitar players and sound engineers have to endure in a live or studio environment. 

Traditional methods take time, which is valuable at sound checks and, when the sound engineer is happy with the microphone positioned and aligned within the speaker’s sweet-spot, there’s no guarantee that the microphone will stay in place during the performance, it’s often short lived when the gig starts with a vengeance.

The drooping microphone stand can be a problem, along with the footprint taken up on a small stage, the leads often get caught and move the stand and, unwanted overspill has always been a major hindrance within audio separation whatever the size of the stage or venue. This is all a major headache and unwanted stress for the band’s sound engineer, or indeed, the band on a budget that has to engineer themselves from the stage.

“I’m always looking for the best a guitarist can get from their personal gear set up, and the INTEGRAL Internal Mic is the perfect companion for the studio and the road!” 

Integral offers an alternative concept to close cab miking with a host of problem solving benefits.

Installed as a ‘fit and forget’ concept within an open or closed-back speaker cabinet, Integral features a circular constructed rigid frame mounted internally, against the speaker cabinet’s baffle and held in place by the speaker itself.

A high quality super cardioid dynamic microphone with an exceptionally high/low, full range frequency response and pressure tested at extreme volumes, is housed within the central ‘pepper pot’ strategically aimed at the speaker’s sweet spot, ‘off-centre’ towards the outer edge of the speaker.

Integral delivers the true speaker audio to offshore sources in all its ‘analogue glory’ at every performance. The ergonomic domed design of the ‘pepper pot’ is two-fold, also acting as a sonic diffuser, calming harsh frequencies emanating from the centre of the speaker, whilst enhancing and redirecting punchy mids and highs toward the microphone capsule allowing the analogue audio to cut through the mix.

“Save setup time and space on busy stages with this crafty guitar-amp miking solution!”

The benefits of Integral speak for themselves.

Integral is passive, no batteries or phantom power is needed, overspill is massively reduced, the stage is tidier without backline microphone stands and leads.

The soundcheck time for each guitar cab or combo with the Integral Close Cab Miking System installed, is now as long as it takes to plug in an XLR lead.    

‘Rig It and Gig It’….it’s as simple as that.
