    Hi All,
    Yesterday I went to a recording session and I used the DPA with the rubber holder and during the test the ingeniero discover a noise like a vibration, so we tried the holder in different places and no solution.
    Finally the ingeniero hold the mic with his hand and the noise was gone.
    So we ended up mounting the mic on a mic stand just like a regular mic.
    So I'd like to know if any of you folks had this same "experience -issue" and if any of you can recommend a solution.
    Definitely the rubber holder can not keep up with the bass vibrations.
    Thanks !!!!

    Not my experience do you have the D:Vote? I have had issues with goosekneck buzzing against the inside of the bridge. The goosekneck extension avaliable from DPA will solve that issue.

    I don’t think that mic technically should be used for professional level recordings... Unless I was in an ensemble or big band situation. How did it turn out?

    While their are certianly better options. I have used it record with and didn’t have the issues you’re describing. The DPA Goosekneck will buzz if it makes contact with the bridge.

    I haven't heard the recording yet but I think the engineer was fine with that mic. I was a small studio and we recorded live. probable not the best recording situation. I might post some samples later on.

    Thanks Ric,
    the funny thing is that I had this problem before at home and I blame it to my bass, may be a crack but my bass is been recently restore and there is no cracks at all.
    May be my bass that vibrates to much, I don't know but I'll experiment more.
    And certainly I wasn't the gooseneck touching the bridge.
    Thanks for helping!!
