Best solution for live recordingsCapturing great sounding string instruments in live settings can be a challenge. Pickups sonic qualities are sub-par. Using traditional microphones on stands is in many cases not possible as they pick up everything else around. The DPA d:vote 4099 series is the best solution we have found. It is so light and small that instrumentalists don't even notice it. More importantly, if you take the time to research the optimal placement, the DPA 4099 series will give you clear and clean audio that no pickup will ever get close to. Price is not for every budget, but you definitely get what you paid for.

DPA 4099 violin micProduces a very clean natural sound that allows me to play in a more nuanced fashion. The gooseneck lets me adjust the mic placement to find the perfect sound for all of my instruments. It's a well thought out product that I'm very pleased with.
