    AKG C411L contact mic and AKG MPA V L phantom adapter. $185 OBO
    These are the separate units so you can have a small, light weight set-up on your bass without the (large, heavy) XLR adapter attached to the tailpiece. This little unit is a mic and sounds like it but works more like a pick-up! The volume and rejection before feedback is really impressive. It requires phantom power but can be used with a Headway or similar pre-amp that supplies 12v or 18v. (I'm also including a 15' and a 5' mini xlr cable to run between the mic and the phantom adapter, they add a small bit of noise to the signal but can be a really convenient option.)

    I bought this whole rig from DRURB here on Talkbass a couple of months ago and have gigged with it a couple of times. He has a lengthy description here (the link to his thread.)

    Price includes shipping ConUS
    PayPal preferred

    I'm very interested but not quite sure about the set-up and whether it will work with my amp.

    If it is a Clarus with phantom power and a combo/xlr input then you are all set. The mic requires phantom power and the Clarus provides 48v.
