  • Clip-on wireless for a Stradivarius ?

    Well, not a fiddle but the equivalent in a jazz/blues/funk trumpet . Extra points if you can name which one I'm talking about .

    But seriously, what can do justice to the tone of this fine vintage instrument?

            For a clip on, I'd probably go with DPA 4099T in this case. Plug it into something like a ULXD (or better) and I think you'd have a solid setup.

              We used a ATM350 on my son's mandolin. Works great but is a bit trickier to control feedback wise that the K&K soundboard piezos just inside the F-holes. Sounds great though.

                FWIW, I use Beta 98 (the H/C version) on strings and horns, and it works well. It's a little weird to get it positioned correctly on a violin, but it's super easy on a trumpet or other horns.

                  ATM-35 or 350, I have 4 in my inventory for just such applications.

                      The best possible sound quality will be achieved by using a digital wireless system with the best mic you can afford. I like the DPA as well, but it might cost more than the wireless system.

                        I've used countryman isomax omni (gently clipped or taped onto the bridge) with great results. Not the new ones but the older rectangle ones (look like a small pillow mint). DPA makes some GREAT lavs. I've never used one on a violin but I'll bet it would sound great.

                        Wow close mic a real Stradivarious? Almost seems like a waste :-(.
