"I've had opportunity to use the microphone in the following
situations: with a medium-size amplifier in elementary strings classes,
with a nice sound system at a fiddle contest (Allen & Heath mixer,
etc), with a good sound system with a large praise band. The two
trials on good sound equipment using phantom power supplied by the
boards were Spectacular! I absolutely love your microphone.
I've used various transducers but I much prefer the Fiddle-Pro.
Since I play a lot of Classical music in addition to folk, I really
need something removable.
What I love about the Fiddle-Pro is the ease of installation and
removal. It takes just a couple of seconds to throw it on the instrument
and even less to remove it.
The sound is great, and I love having the mic'd sound as opposed
to that of a transducer. It just seems more "natural" to me.
In all, I'd recommend the Fiddle-Pro to any amateur or professional
looking for a natural sounding mic/pick-up.
It's a fantastic design - you should have heard the "ooh's" and
"ah's" from my fifth grade strings students. They all wanted to
hear the violin played with the microphone played really loudly.
I really think you have a wonderful product."
