Discover the range of professional quality Harmonik microphones that we can install on your accordion.
This high-end pickup system can equip any type of chromatic or diatonic accordion and of all brands (French or international type), thanks to different models perfectly adapted to the needs of the musician, the technical configuration of the instrument and its size.
The accordion remains, depending on the model and its extent, difficult to sound. All the more difficult since two parts (vocals and bass) have to be considered and balanced together, depending on the needs of the accordionist, the other musicians and the sound engineer.
A balanced and homogeneous sound recording...
Technology Harmonik therefore adapts perfectly to the accordion and offers a perfect faithful and natural sound reproduction of your instrument. The microphones, from 3 to 10 depending on the model, are installed on the singing side.
The sound recording of the entire range, from bass to treble, is thus perfectly respected because the system adapts to the range of the instrument. Depending on the opening or closing of the bellows, the smooth or powerful nuances and volumes are perfectly restored, faithful as in the natural... You keep the timbre of your accordion and your listening habits.
Reliability and Technical Innovations...
Harmonik has electronic components and ultra-low noise amplifiers, which ensure high precision and low harmonic distortion, for guaranteed faithful sound.
Harmonik has developed a unique Shock-Mount® system that mechanically isolates the pickups and greatly attenuates the mechanical noise associated with the accordion, absorbing the mechanical vibrations produced during play. This to obtain a clear and natural sound.
Harmonik has developed a system with high resistance against feedback, thanks to the combination of its directional microphones with high-fidelity and innovative electronics allows the system to ignore external noise up to 30 db.
Harmonik offers "anti-feedback" technology for significant stage comfort!
Harmonik uses Neutrik® connectors, which guarantees the musician reliable cabling of the microphones. In addition, the locking connectors equipped with gold-plated terminals, ensure an optimal connection.
- High quality sealed potentiometers protect the contacts from outside particles, ensuring a long life for the volume control circuit.
Harmonik offers different models of microphone systems powered by a 9v battery. The RG model (Richard Galliano) offers phantom power (48V) with the 9V battery. A box for the 9V battery can be installed to allow you to change the battery very quickly outside.
- A Led indicator (ON-BATT), visible on the grid, will indicate the state of the battery.
- The audio output can also be Mono or Stereo depending on your needs and the configuration of your accordion.
You manage your live sound, volume, balance...
On stage, in concert, in the studio... the potentiometers installed on the grid of your accordion give you total control of volumes and vocal/bass balance. Depending on the options and the model chosen, an equalizer for treble/bass control is also possible for each part of your instrument. You manage and fine-tune your live sound the way you want…
Discretion and comfort on stage…
The system Harmonik remains very discreet on your accordion. The potentiometers arranged on the grid, and possibly the audio connection and the 9V battery power supply (if you wish as an option), are the only visible elements.
You play without constraint from a microphone stand and remain free to move without altering your sound. Easy installation on stage and no element has to be disassembled to store the instrument.
For more convenience, some models of Harmonik microphones can be connected to a wireless system (HF).
Professional installation recommended...
Even though the system Harmonik is perfectly suited, the accordion remains a complex instrument with sound due to its design, its "always in motion" play, its large harmonic range... An assembly error can cause mechanical malfunctions of the accordion, leaks, disassembly and repair problems if these are not anticipated. The installation therefore requires some knowledge and precautions related to the mechanical part of the accordion. Cable routing, drilling, placement of microphones, disassembly and repairs are to be considered and should not be neglected under any circumstances.
