d:vote instrument microphone, clips and accessories
Our highly popular d:vote 4099 works remarkably well on a wide variety of instruments, and the wide range of exchangeable clips make it a multi-purpose solution.
A short overview of the different parts and clips:
d:vote instrument microphones can be sold separately, e.g. VO4099V for violin, VO4099D for drums, etc. There’s also a matched pair with magnet-clips for piano (VO4099P), but most popular are the d:vote touring kits.
A touring kit holds 4 or 10 microphones in a peli case, with a wide range of clips dedicated to either classical or pop-rock instruments.
