When internationally acclaimed virtuoso acoustic/electric cellist, recording artist and composer Tina Guo needs to amplify her acoustic cello, she uses the d:vote 4099C Instrument Microphone for Cello from DPA Microphones.
Guo began studying the cello at the age of seven under the instruction of her father and has appeared as a guest artist with the San Diego Symphony, the State of Mexico National Symphony, the Thessaloniki State Symphony in Greece, the Petrobras Symphony in Brazil, and the Vancouver Island Symphony in British Columbia.
Guo first used DPA’s d:vote 4099C while on tour with Baroque-Rock group Vivaldianno’s “City of Mirrors” Tour in 2015. Guo says: “We played in arenas, including the O2 Arena in Prague and the sound quality from the d:vote 4099C was amazing. I also used the mic on my recent tour with Blues legend Joe Bonamassa. The d:vote 4099C has the best sound quality out of any on-body microphone I’ve tried on my acoustic cello, from small halls to arenas.”
The portability, ease of use and design of the d:vote 4099C, allows for maximum sound and clarity without endangering the fragile strings of her 1880 Gand & Bernardel cello, says Guo.
Last month, DPA Microphones has introduced new accessories for the d:dictate Microphone Series.
