In response to customer demand, the popular Cortado Buffered & Balanced piezo contact mic is now stocked in a variety of cable lengths. The cable from the circuit box to the piezo is available in the original 1.5′ (45cm) length, plus 4′ (122cm) and 6′ (183cm). All models still have the same 1′ (25cm) XLR cable “pigtail”. The original, shorter cable is handy if you are running around sampling objects like vacuum cleaner motors or old floppy drives. The longer cables are more useful for micing musical instruments, or objects in the field — such as hatching eagle eggs.
