The Lav-Amp: a compact lavalier and headset mic tester. Easy to use, compact. Anybody who works with a lot of wireless microphones needs one of these!

Update - the Evolution compatible unit has been discontinued. In its place there is now an adapter cable to test Evolution compatible mics with the Chicago model tester.

Available in two versions: Shure compatible (TA4F) and Sennheiser LEMO compatible (3-pin LEMO). Please email if you are interested in a version supporting any other brand of wireless.

Operation is about as simple as it gets! Plug in a lavalier or headset microphone and a pair of headphones. Turn the knob to switch on power and control volume.

Headphone output doubles as balanced line output. So you can also use the Lav-Amp as preamp to use lav mics without a wireless system.

Extremely useful for A2 use - check mic placement while micing up an actor in their dressing room, for instance.
Also useful for testing to see if there are cable problems, or when a wireless system isn't available.

Designed and hand-made in the USA by an actual audio dude. Powered by a single 9 volt transistor battery.

"Chicago" model - Shure compatible $80 plus shipping
"Darwin" adapter cable - allows testing Evolution compatible mics with the Chicago tester $30 plus shipping
"Hanover" model - Sennheiser LEMO compatible $115 plus shipping
Shipping typically $15. Illinois customers will have to pay state sales tax.

$80? That's outrageous! I bet could build one myself!
