The Cortado MkIII reveals the hidden sounds lurking inside solid objects. Use the provided sensor putty or a spring clamp to stick it to anything and begin exploring.
The Cortado MkIII can be used to mic any acoustic instrument: just stick one or two mics onto the soundboard. You can mic solid body instruments by attaching the sensor to any of it’s solid parts (body, headstock, etc…). You can even mic speaker cabinets by sticking the Cortado onto the cabinet’s solid surface, or directly onto the speaker magnet.
