Good mic for clip-on Sax

    Does any of you have a good suggestion for clip-on mics for a Sax?

    Usually this is more a live issue. But thats exactly what I will be tracking over the next few months.
    The player wants to move, and not be limited by a mic position.

    Hi Albert,

    check the countryman isomax mics - very smooth for sax - ( in fact I prefer using them on a stand - looks silly but sounds better) and keep away from the akg c400's.

    Kind regards
    Walter :)

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm not familiar with Countryman. Can you provide with an URL to some more info?
    Do you know where to get them in Western Europe (Germany, Holland, UK)?

    Whats the main reason to stay away from the C4xx from AKG?

    Hi Albert,

    I bought mine from Musik Produktiv/Ibbenb├╝ren.

    The AKG C400 series mics sound very hard (but i love the 411 contact thing!)

    Kind regards
    Walter :)
  5. Check out DPA, they've got a series of microphones to be attached to the instrument.
