    Default Favorite clip-on microphone for Irish bouzoukis

    What's your favorite clip-on microphone for an Irish bouzouki? I recently had a t.bone Ovid System CC 100 recommended to me, and I wanted to see if there were any others out there that people are recommending. Thank you!

    On my guitar I use an Irig Acoustic Stage. It has a soundhole mike and a preamplifier with some modding but best of all, 10 automatic antifeedback filters.

    It can also be calibrated to your instrument. It is, I think, meant for guitar but it's for acoustics so, why not?.

    I use a DPA 4099 clip-on mic on my octave mandolin, clipping it on when needed. It's wonderful, has very good feedback rejection. I have it mounted at the lower body facing the F-hole:

    On a bouzouki with an oval soundhole you will probably want to clip it on the upper left shoulder near the neck join, pointing down at an angle to the soundhole. That's how I mount it on my acoustic guitar. You'll need the guitar clip version, and might have to snip off any excess length of the mounting shaft since most 'zouks and OMs aren't as deep in the body as a guitar.

    I tried (besides others) a John Bartlett guitar mic and a DPA 4061 and I liked both.

    I have used such a mic: on everything from mandolin to mandocello. It works very well (though now I have an LR Baggs Anthem installed on the 'cello),
