      “I've been using d:vote™ Instrument Microphones for many years, especially on cello and double bass. I really like them because they are so small, light and easy to install. They come with a fabulous range of accessories and are not invasive, even on small instruments such as violins. In terms of sound, they bring out the true nature of an acoustic instrument and deliver the deep, full-bodied, true low end bass that you expect to hear."

      About d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones

      Both the Loud- and Extreme-SPL versions of the d:vote™ 4099 have a supercardioid polar pattern for high rejection and superior gain-before-feedback. The mic also retains a uniform off-axis frequency response to ensure a high-energy, clear live performance.

      The  d:vote™ 4099 also features an enhanced shock mount design, providing excellent isolation from handling noise and rumble. Cables are available in heavy duty or lightweight versions, depending on the application – both are designed to withstand the rigors of daily use. A versatile, integrated gooseneck extender provides easy and repeatable mounting.

      The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument. The mounting system is designed to never blemish or scratch the finish of your instrument. The flexible design supports a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities

      I’d go so far as to say that it is a true Swiss Army knife (Is there a Danish Army knife?) of pro audio, the thought being that if a mic is at first accurate in the capture of a given acoustic source, it should perform equally well in a number of circumstances.

      How to mic a drum kit

      How close do you place a snare drum mic above the skin? Have you ever heard the sound of the drum that close? Hopefully not! Nevertheless, that is where we normally place the snare mic. Always consider what you expect to hear as a result of where you place the microphone.

      10 points on close miking for live performances

      We apply close-miking to obtain the highest possible sound pressure level (SPL) of the sound source – and the lowest SPL of all other nearby or distant sources. Close-miking can provide us with the possibility of a cleaner mix. Furthermore, close-miking can reduce the risk of acoustical feedback when used with public address systems (PA) as less gain of the microphone is needed being so close.
