We have gathered some statements from artists, addressing the functionality of the REMIC V5200 microphone series for violin / fiddle / viola.
YOU FORGET ITs THERE.!
“Remic V5200 for studio – Easily the most faithful reproduction of a given acoustic violins sound I have found. Use it on a good violin – it sounds like your good violin. Use it on a cheap sounding violin, and it faithfully reproduces that too.
Easy to EQ. Very light. Mounting idea is great – it installs in a minute and once on, you forget its there. It’s much less obtrusive than other mini condenser mics like the DPA, Audio-Technica or AMT. Does not change the acoustic sound of the instrument.
A tad bit more bow sound than I like, but easy to EQ that out. I think it’s a great recording mic.”
Albert Mueller, American fiddler
I WILL NOT BE CAUGHT ON A STAGE WITHOUT IT..!
“I have tried the heck out of every option to get good sound into a sound system for live performances. As you know, condenser mikes are the best, but they are a feedback nightmare on stage. I have tried virtually every one of them known to man, from Baggs to DPA to G and Fills, etc.
I finally found one that beats them all. Remic V5200LB. It is nothing short of incredible. No feedback, and tiny. I now play in a folk band, and based upon my experience with this mike I would not be caught on a stage without it.
I played last Wednesday night with the Remic V5200LB, and it was awesome. The woody sound of my violin filled the room over our two Bose L1 Model II sound system. We recorded it on our mixer, and it also sounded good. In fact, it is incredibly good. I just went straight into the mixer and added only a minor amount of reverb. I did not say anything about it to the other band members, and all of them noticed the sound.
Last night I recorded my fiddle track on two songs our group is recording. I used my V5200. It sounded terrific. We compared it to using a large condenser mike, and decided that the V5200 was better for me. One reason was that I like to move around a lot when I play, but also the V5200 provided great sound.”
Frank Willis, American fiddler
TURN UP THE VIOLIN !
“The previous mini condenser mics I’ve tried couldn’t take much gain without feedback forcing me to use pickups, which I don’t feel represents my sound accurately, for larger productions, or simply go without being very high in the mix using a mic. “Turn up the violin” was something I often heard, but alas, sometimes nothing could be done given my equipment.
I like the fact that with these Remic mics, I can have a nice mic sound and get as loud as I need to, when I need to.
Both Remic mic types can take a remarkable amount of gain before feedback, and suppress ambient sounds while maintaining a wide dynamic and overtone range.”
Laurel Thomsen – American violinist/fiddler
NO FEEDBACK – EASY SET UP & GREAT SOUND
What more could you want?
“The sound of my violin picked up by the Remic was beautiful and both Martin Petersen and Geir Hjørnevik loved the accoustic sound.
Many compliments from the audience as well. I am a happy camper and love the mic. No feedback, easy setup and great sound. What more could you want. Looking forward to playing the Tønder festival this weekend with the mic.”
Warm regards from Troldeskoven,

technology – which REMIC states allows the sound of an instrument to be “partly captured immediately after the first air molecules are set in motion by the soundboard of the instrument” and partly “in a limited and strongly controlled nearfield, which captures the overtone register of the instrument” – the aim is of course, to eliminate pollution from unwanted sources of sound, like reflections from the venue, PA system, stage monitors and other instruments.the best microphone for violin, the best microphone for cello, the best microphone for double bass, upright bass, how to choose the right microphone,the best microphone for live performance, the best mic for live performance, the mic that doesn’t feed, anti feedback mic, anti feedback microphone.
