Product Description

Powered by phantom power, the Cloud Microphones CLZ Mic Activator maximizes your mic signal for Stage or Studio applications. A must-have addition to any studio or live toolset, the CLZ is designed to be a middleman between your mic and preamp, maximizing signal quality while driving long cable runs. The direct-coupled, discrete JFET circuitry preserves your signal’s integrity while the CLZ goes to work.

Cloud Microphones CLZ Mic Activator Features

  • Maximizes your microphone’s signal quality with variable input impedance
  • Problem-solving features and impeccable sonic quality
  • Low-cut filter is variable from 20Hz-250Hz to cut out unwanted low end
  • Great way to transparently increase the output of ribbon and dynamic mics
  • Rugged steel enclosure for excellent shielding and rock-solid reliability
  • Requires +48V phantom power from your preamp
  • Variable input impedance
  • Hot but clean output
  • Pre-preamp control and flexibility

You get control over the input impedance to get the best out of any mic, and a variable output level (+12 to +24dB) so you can drive even the longest cable runs with ease. You even get a variable low-cut filter to clean up your signal before it ever graces your preamp. Whether you run live sound or just use a variety mics on a daily basis in your studio, you’ll love working with the CLZ mic activator!

The Cloud Microphones CLZ mic activator’s input features variable impedance from 150 to 15k ohms. Since every microphone is different, and typically sound best at a specific input impedance, you can tailor the CLZ to any mic to get the best performance. And even if your preamp features variable impedance, the CLZ lets you control this near your mic – great if your mic pres are across the room, let alone across a crowded venue!

Hot but clean output
Sometimes you need a little extra juice to get a quality mic signal to your preamp, especially with long cable runs. The Cloud Microphones CLZ mic activator makes it easy, adding 12 to 24dB of gain to your signal, while the premium circuitry passes your audio un-colored. It’s great for low-output ribbon and dynamic mics in your studio, and it’s awesome at driving long cable runs from the stage to the board in live sound settings.

Pre-preamp control and flexibility
The CLZ from Cloud Microphones is placed between your mic and preamp, giving you access to the additional gain and variable low-cut filter on the CLZ. In your studio, that makes it easy to optimize your signal before it hits your preamp. Sure, your preamp may have a filter, and maybe even variable impedance – but it’s across the room, maybe even in another room. The CLZ lets you dial the filter in and maximize your signal for a long cable run, meaning you’ll be hitting your favorite preamp with the best signal possible.

Optimize any dynamic or ribbon microphone in your locker with the Cloud Microphones CLZ mic activator!

What is your opinion of this product?
This is simply amazing. I bought this for an aea ribbon mic. This gives me a great clean boost and gives me a lot of different tones also. It made my sm58 sound even better along with a bunch of different dynamics I own. It’s a bit pricy, but worth the money. I love the way it looks too. It has a retro old school vibe to it. I also got it super fast from AMS. That’s why I love ordering from here. Super fast free shipping and five payments with no credit check... it’s a no brained.
