Cortado MkIII reveals the silent sounds lurking inside solid objects. Use the provided 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 even mic electric instruments by sticking the Cortado onto the speaker cabinet, or directly onto the speaker magnet.
