Claire Mann Recommends Fiddle Pro

Here is what Claire Mann had to say about the Fiddle Pro.

"I have tried several pick-up systems over the last few years and have been plagued by combinations of body noise, lack of signal, poor tone quality and bulkiness.

The new Fiddle Pro microphone solves all of these problems and provides me with a loud, clean sound which truly represents the sound I’m trying to achieve.

It actually sounds like an acoustic fiddle!

Combine this with the convenience of being able to remove the system in seconds and I think, after years of touring, that I’ve found a reliable winning formula."

Claire Mann comes from Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the north east of England and is quickly establishing herself as one of the leading exponents of traditional Irish flute, fiddle and song. She has been performing since an early age and has won numerous All-Ireland championships on flute, whistle and fiddle. Claire has also performed for the renowned British Flute Society who described her as "astonishing".

Alongside performing, she is also becoming recognised as a tutor on fiddle, flute and tin whistle, having taught at the Folkworks Summer Schools, various festivals worldwide, Newcastle and Strathclyde Universities and is currently Flute and Tin Whistle Tutor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

She has toured extensively worldwide with bands Tabache, Craobh Rua and Christy O'Leary and released her debut solo album in September 2001 to great critical acclaim, which she is currently touring with bouzouki player, guitarist and singer Aaron Jones.

"Her sheer musicality - the beautiful feel in her playing - is what really sets her apart" - The Planet, Radio National, Australia

"I for one would love to see Claire with a cloned sister of herself in a live performance as both her flute and fiddle playing are faultless" - Pete Fyfe,
