Schertler’s new DYN-V-P48 is a fully balanced, active, dynamic contact microphone with Class A electronics. Specially designed to enhance the natural qualities of the violin and viola in both amplified and recording environments, the microphone features state-of-the-art, in-house developed activefiltering technology that has enabled it to be precisely matched to the instruments’ sound characteristics. This leads to more “immediate” results for the user, making it possible to achieve amazing sound with only minimal adjustments required.
The DYN-V-P48 has a new sleek, lightweight design, making it even less obtrusive to the player. The microphone is supplied with Schertler’s own customized cable that is both robust and torsion resistant, designed to withstand the rigours of daily use while delivering best possible performance results. A balanced XLR connector enables direct connection to a microphone input on a mixing console, as well as to a full range amplification system.
The DYN-V-P48 can be easily and safely applied to even the most valuable of instruments using special adhesive putty. It can also be quickly transferred between instruments during performances or recording sessions. Note: This microphone requires 48V phantom power.
Mastery for Strings presents a unique, efficient methodology for developing high levels of proficiency in string players in both classroom and private studio settings. Cornerstones of the Mastery for Strings approach are: a curriculum design for large heterogeneous string classes, technical skills organized in small, sequential steps, "how-to" pages with clear goals, explicit instructions, and recognizable evaluation criteria for each technical skill, a plan for developing problem-solving strategies and self-evaluation skills, music theory (fingerboard geography) taught without reference to the piano keyboard.
