The DPA Microphone Holder for Stringed Instruments (5 Pieces) MHS6005 is a soft piece of rubber designed for mounting a DPA Miniature microphone on a violin, viola, cello or double bass. Depending on the desired sound color and sound level, the holder can be mounted between the tailpiece and the bridge of the instrument, or can be placed above or below the strings.

Using this mount below the strings is especially good for use in live applications. It allows for greater gain before feedback and less leakage from nearby sound sources. The microphone's close placement to the wood of the instrument will reveal a darker response. Mounting the microphone above the strings works well for solo performance, or in the studio. The sound will be more open and clear, revealing the true sound of the instrument and the room. The miniature microphone is secured by its cable in a clip, while the holder itself has a firm grip on two strings of the instrument with small hooks.

*Please note that this unit contains (5) microphone holders.

Perfect Position
Use this convenient clip to perfectly position your microphone on your violin, viola, cello, or double bass.

    Comments about DPA Microphones Microphone Holder Stringed Instruments:

    Thia is a cheap and practical solution to place a microphone on a violin/viola and other types of string instruments. It is also very resistant and you can use it with any type of microphones (not just DPA).

    Comments about DPA Microphones Microphone Holder Stringed Instruments:

    These are certainly worth owning if you close mic strings on a regular basis. They are a very worthwhile option to have in the mic kit and priced very nicely.

    I found that they did not necessarily provide the grip on either the mic cable or the strings that I wished. The reality is that string players move their instruments a lot and the nature of this mount means that extra precautions need to be taken to secure the cable.
