Great sounding mic

Suman, 05.07.2016
I've been using this mic on my double bass for a few weeks and have managed to get some great results from it in conjunction with a pick up. I've used to for gigs and recording and it's performed very well in both situations.

I'm using it to mic a 1892 Czech carved viol shaped flat back bass and have been blending it's signal with a Realist Copperhead pickup. I generally have the Realist going into an amp for on stage monitoring and the DPA going to front of house which works well. There has been a couple of occasions where I've been able to get the blended DPA/Realist signal back into the monitor and it sounds great. A very warm, natural sound.

The design of the mic is excellent and it's very easy to install. There is a clip that attaches to the strings below the bridge and the very clever gooseneck extender means you can position it very accurately on the bass. Mine is pointing towards the middle of the bass just above the bridge.

The only thing I'd criticise is the fact that there is no easy way of attaching the XLR output cable to the bass so it ends up trailing on the floor. There's a clip on it but I think it's a belt clip which is not very practical. It's a minor gripe but it would be nice if there was a sturdier clip that could attach to the bottom of the tailpiece or something like that.

Despite that I'm very happy with this mic and am looking forward to using it at more gigs. It's definitely transformed my live sound for the better.

Great sounding mic in line with either a DI signal or other mic.

Great sounding microphone for the double bass with minimal feedback on live use. You definately need to use it with a pick up on live gigs as it gives you a beautiful top end but virtually no bottom end with a good level before feedback.
I also use it in the studio alongside another mic (or sometimes more) with great results. Thoroughly reccomend this mic!
