DPA d:vote VO4099-g-Guitar Mic w/Clip

I recently drive to Sweetwater for my 1st time and was floored by both the facility and the fantastic, friendly customer service I received. I was even given a tour and saw their world-class recording studio ! Wow ! While I was there, I purchased a DPA 4099-G condensor mic for my live acoustic guitar performances and it sounds killer !!! Totally captures the true sound and character of my prized Collings D2H acoustic guitar, and makes for great sounding recordings taken straight from the board at our live shows. I'll look forward to making the drive from Charlotte, Mi. to Sweetwater again very soon !!!!

Super Fantastic Mic

This is the finest small mic I've ever seen or used. Absolutely fantastically designed, engineered, and sweet sound. I'm ecstatic! But I prefer you don't buy one - then you'll sound as good as me and I don't want that.
5/5

Excellent Mic

This microphone is excellent. I use it for my Martin 000-28, Taylor 522e 12 fret and my custom made Ken Potts Koa Ukelele from Maui. All of my instruments to not have electronics. This microphone attaches to my instruments easily and I am now able to plug into an amplifier and jam with friends. As others have stated, the microphone is very sensitive. Just make sure you point the microphone toward the sound hole and find the "sweet spot". It was an expensive purchase, but worth every penny.

Very nice sound

I use this microphone on a martin D28 that has a built in bridge pickup. I special ordered a duplex cable, 1/4 inch for pick up and microdot for the mic. The cable decreases stage clutter. This combination makes the guitar sound incredible through the pa.The microphone comes with an xlr to microdot adapter. This adapter also has a built in low cut filter.The dpa comes with a clip to fasten it to the guitar. Placement is critical for the fullest sound. It works best for live performance. It doesn't have that pickup sound. It adds the lifelike tone to the pickup in my guitar.For recording it sounds a little thin. It is relatively expensive, however, this is the solution to make your audience hear the true sound of your guitar. I recommend it highly. You can achieve fairly high levels of gain before feedback. I would suspect you can use it with other instruments with the correct clip/holder.As always Seetwater and Alan delivered great service.

Excellent on Guitar, but works well with other instruments

When I purchased the DPA 4099G, I also purchased the DPA4099 Piano pair too. My initial review can be found on the 4099 P page, as I gave a general review of all of them at the same time. That being said, these mics are really smart investments, and for anyone who runs live sound or records live shows, I'd encourage you to buy several of these rather than investing in one boutique microphone. I record live shows in a theater space in the upper west side of New York City, and the range of shows runs the full gambit from classical to jazz to rock to world music. The challenge, since we're a small theater, is in isolating instruments in the mix. The 4099s have helped tremendously with this. I won't say that they completely isolate the instruments from others in near proximity, but they make the post performance mix down much easier. The design is brilliant, and the time spent getting the desired sound is minimal. So, for live sound folks, it's a quick set up, and even shorter amount of time in finding a sweet spot. Guitarists (and other held acoustic instruments) have a little more freedom of movement too. I also recommend that if you can only afford the guitar mic, consider buying a few of the other clips. That way you can interchange the mic with other acoustic instruments.If you can afford more than one, DO IT! You won't be sorry. The smiles from the players at how quickly they like what they are hearing is a real perk.
