Accusound specialise in producing products specifically for individual instruments. Here you will find products suitable for Violin. There are a significant number or variations available for the Violin. Two main styles of microphone may be used either separately or as a combined system on the violin. There are also variations in each of the styles. Firstly, the capsule microphone; this may be one from the Performer range where a directional microphone is mounted on the side of the instrument using a soft rubber mount and the capsule is pointed towards the bridge, f hole or strings, each giving a slightly different sound. There is also the traditional flexible neck microphone which is similar to the previous type but is mounted on the tail piece of the instrument. The microphone may be uni-directional or omni-directional and is usually pointed towards the f hole but again may be pointed to the bridge or strings.
Another version of the capsule mic is the suspension mount. This capsule is suspended from the strings using a light weight foam triangle so the capsule is under the strings next to the bridge. This gives a bright punchy sound.
The final type is the contact strip. For the violin this is a small strip which is held against the body of the instrument directly under the tailpiece and held in place by a piece of dense foam. This pick-up system gives the strongest sound and is least susceptible to feedback on a live stage.
Any two of the above, except the Performer
microphone may be used together to produce a combined system. The signal
from the two mics in a combined system can be feed to the
mixer/amplifier either individually or as a combined signal by using our
2 channel mixer at the instrument.
Both the flexible neck system and the suspension system are available as omni-directional microphones or uni-directioanl microphones.Please select the product below to read more about them.
