John Hornby Skewes & Co. (JHS) has announced that it will be the worldwide distributor for the Samsystems INTEGRAL Close-Cab Miking System. Designed specifically for live applications or studio use, available in a 10 inch or 12 inch format, both the INTEGRAL IM10 and IM12 offer an alternative concept for close-cab miking guitar or bass guitar speaker cabinets, or combos.
Featuring a robust, lightweight (under 6.5 ounces) circular frame and, with no batteries or power source required, INTEGRAL can be installed in minutes as a ‘fit and forget’ concept, mounted internally between the cabinet grill and existing speaker.
Described by the music industry and media as ‘ingenious’, INTEGRAL features a high quality off-axis, flat response super cardioid dynamic, wide-capture microphone with an exceptionally high/low, full range frequency response.
Pressure tested at extreme volumes, and housed within the central perforated dome, which also acts as a sonic diffuser, this highly sensitive capsule is aimed off-center at the sweet spot area of the speaker coil.
Eradicating many of the problems associated with external close miking, the INTEGRAL has the ability to reject unwanted overspill from other instruments or close proximity drum kits, reduce valuable band set up and sound check times and negate the need for backline mics, stands and cables.
