If more isolation is needed, one or two cardioids or wide cardioids is a good solution. Use either 4011 Directional Microphones
or 4015 Wide Cardioid Microphones
. Two cardioids can be placed in XY configuration at the sweet spot.
Miniature omni mics
Miniature omnis like the 4061 Instrument Microphone Kit
offer a wide variety of placement possibilities and many live situations will benefit from close-miking with a Miniature Microphone
, especially if the monitor level is not too high.
Miniature supercardioid mics
Offering lots of gain before feedback while retaining the clear and transparent DPA signature sound, the 4099 Instrument Microphone for Violin
is the perfect choice for all live applications.
