Micro declined in the version for violin


How long have you use it?
1 complete we in different environments (one for a cocktail, a duet for a religious ceremony and training variet)

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I used to have the DPA 4060 but recovered the other instruments too "noisy" around me (drums, percussions) and I found it quite unstable at its fxing.

What thing do you like most and least?
The capital SON! I finally have a warm sound reproduction of my instrument - right at the equalizer console, some reverb and it works - the bass is nice and natural treble and not aggressive. I positioned on the bridge, just behind not hinder the bowing.
Least, the very thin cable and too long for use with the relatively expensive belt or pocket and HF owners connectors XLR connector that de facto bribes to

How would you rate the quality / price?
It seems expensive at first and I did not look elsewhere because I know the reliable brand I finally rich and natural for my violin sound.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, definitely

See specifications


I tried one hour and returned to the box. Back at Thomann.

It takes all the outside noise. If you sing and play at the same microphone your voice will fairly important. A priori a very good directivity, I have not found even trying full settings ...
Caution very low level of power, mount the gain for the sound.

The sound is very natural very true it is.

For me a single use: home studio with very good preamp and total silence during shooting. (There is happiness actually)

Electret microphones instrument


j have two and I use them mainly for the accordion and it changed my life

akg 416 517 etc. shure beta 98 ​​and 350 atm audio technica pro 35

the sound quality to breath on acoustic instrument I tried on accordion, violin, cello, trumpet, baritone sax, guitar, clarinet good it was not instruments of study, but it acts as a real clear sound quality instrument without much work plus.les different clip that really respects the instruments.

The moin the price: I think the good is expensive mics I understand it as I see quality but all device (clamp adapter hf etc) its really expensive

I think in buy two to cover all my needs

microphone for studio and stage instrument.


Now that I've tested it thoroughly, I will leave a notice.

First, I test, recording medium with a sound card.
perfect result!

The sound quality of this mirco is incredible.

Before posting I think I wanted to test live in different conditions, because it appears often on the advice of this story feedback.

Yesterday it was the most critical room, room kind of small village fetes confused with the worst that can be acoustic.

So not only could hear the sound of my guitars as if it were never in the slightest and acoustic feedback.

It's not complicated I never had any feedback with this mic, and yet y'en level!

So it makes me frightened of feedback this story, and I prevoyer case or refer it to the merchant site, and although unlikely, it is the best microphone I've ever played!

I even prefer to neumman KM184.

When the attachment system, it's great, discreet, lightweight, not embarrassing at all.

And I find myself free movements, which do that after 2 hours intensive, I have no deterioration commme when I have to stay in front of a microphone set up.

that's good!

The small dot and the base cable xlr, seems fragile.c 'the only thing that is scare.
but judging time.

To return to feedback has "those who" revoyer the rest of the audio chain, and try to find the frequency that shit before coming criticize a product without knowing how to use!

It is a static supercardioid with a specific home for classical and folk acoustic guitar. It requires 48 V phantom power


Very good. He was promoted for use on stage because it allows greater mobility of the artist without changing the distance between the instrument and microphone. However, do not you dare skip playing, because even if the attachment is strong enough on the guitar, it does not allow sudden movements.

I made several attempts in the studio. Taking its most natural is obtained when the splint is placed on the bottom of the guitar.

In summary, the sound is very good, but if you do not intend to move too much with your guitar, the report Quait money is not justified.

This dun static versatile attachment system. Several systems are planned (guitar, violin ...) The overall quality seems very good.


I waited a long time to test the microphone to finally have a real acoustic guitar sound on stage. Done: - in my home studio is not bad at all, it can make a decision without worrying too much movement in front of microphone and placing it well get good results, comparable to good static "cigarillos" - but attention on stage: it is unmanageable, do not listen to the marketing department that you are talking about lack of feedback ... if you play alone and with a return ok not too strong, but in group c is not worth it, it hangs around .. in short, quick fix has not arrived yet .... so we submitted a Shoeps my guitar before I can move, I also have some problems with grip but at least J have a great sound. So a very good mic but on stage it is not at all suitable, and yet it is what the importer communicates!. Gaff gaff so before buying, because at 450 € it would be a shame for you to put it back in his box at the end of the scales, annoyed, put your jack in the DI <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" /> Note that I did not test all alone in my corner but Surrounded by famous musicians and a technical team that references in my area, so it is not a review of basic moaner you read but that of someone who's still looking for the solution once a transplanted acoustic guitar "on stage ".... and has still not found. Because of this little deception in the marketing department and the distributor in my area I'll put out a 3 / 10 because it is not good for the scene. on the other hand I said it's still a good mic in the studio, except that at this price point you have choices and sometimes much better, and then there is no need to have a microphone attached to your instrument. Go a 6!

What kind of microphone?

is a microwave instrument, available with several hooks to attach to the intrument, here the violin but also guitar, sax, trumpet ...
in the box, the microphone with his Bonnette and his swan glue, attach the hook to the violin, and an adapter microdot / XLR which also cut down.
fixation is well and does not damage the instrument. the microphone is supercardio. Only drawback, the cord between the microphone and microdot conection is fine (so do not be mad with!).


I have this microwave for 2 weeks.
The sound is nikel! absolutely the sound of the violin, and here, I repeat, nothing is missing in the sound. the microphone is quite closed, it catches it, and do not take too much either which has around. This mic is a little gem!
over 400euros, we can assume that it's expensive, but considering the result, no hesitation. I played before with a micro cell clamp + FWF (which worked well too, but his level, not pictured), I tested my beta98 too, and I had many opportunities to play before the KM184, and although nothing is better.
