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."

      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.

      There is no single mic model that could outperform the 4099 at all positions, especially if we consider the 4099 Series’ distinct advantages at exacting placement, diminished leakage and freedom of movement for the performers.

      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.
