Production Status: In production
The TA20 is a battery powered (9 V) bulti-in microphone system for accordion and harmonica (TA20H). It features seven microphone capsules arranged in parallel to ensure a high degree of uniformity over all three or four descant rows. The TA20 has a stereo 6.3 jack output. When connecting a 6.3mm mono jack cable, the two signals of treble and bass are mixed together and output on one channel. A balance control on the bass side allows adjusting the volume balance between melody and bass. With a Y-cable, the 6.3 mm stereo jack plug on the instrument and two 6.3 mm mono jack plugs on the mixer side, the two signals are output separately and be controlled via two different channels at the mixing console. The microphone is also ideally suited for wireless operation.
