The New SM3BAT From Wildlife Acoustics Has Arrived!

I'm very happy to announce, that the new Song Meter SM3BAT from Wildlife Acoustics has arrived! I even had the opportunity to deploy it last night. 

If I were to sum up initial impressions, in one word: Impressive!

Part 1 of my SM3BAT Review will be posted soon - However, since it is getting a bit lengthy... I've decided to share a couple of initial photos here:

The SM3BAT arrives double-boxed, and well-protected!
(as if it even needed it!)

This is what the top section of box contains
(locking Microphone cable and spiral-bound User Guide)
Much more to follow!

Happy bat detecting!


  1. Greetings,

    I am Faiz from Cave Management Group and we are looking for a bat detector to be used for monitoring bats specialized in caves. Any recommendation on model for bat detector? You can reach me through Highly hope for your respond.

    Many thanks!

  2. Thank you for your comment. I will respond to you directly. But, for now - Honestly the system that comes to mind IS the new SM3BAT. It is built to withstand extreme environments. It would do well in a cave.
