(Alleroed, Denmark--June 27, 2016) Slovakian violinist and producer Filip Jancik
is rapidly gaining an international reputation as one of the best young classical musicians to cross over into the world of pop and rock. The key to the success of Jancik's sound is DPA Microphones' d:vote™ 4099V Instrument Microphone for Violin
, which he uses for all of his live performances and also for any recording projects he undertakes. Now based in Vienna, where he has his own studio, he often plays with top musicians as part of his own Rock 'n Violin project, and also performs with acclaimed artists, such as Canadian rock star Avril Lavigne.
"As a classically trained violinist, I have very high expectations when it comes to sound quality and that was a key factor in my choice of microphone," says Jancik. "When I started playing modern music in 2011, I realized that having a great microphone was going to be very important, so I began looking around for the best sounding option. I tested a number of pick-ups for the violin, including the d:vote™ 4099V, which had only just been released. I immediately knew it was the right option for me because the sound is, quite simply, amazing. It is very natural and has such perfect balance in its frequency spectrum that you can't even tell when a violin has been recorded with this microphone because you just don't hear it. With the d:vote™ 4099V, the sound of my instrument doesn't change - it sounds exactly as it would if I were playing it live, which is very unusual."
Jancik's violin was made by Czech violin master, Tomas Plhal, in 2005 and he describes it as 'an amazing instrument with a rich, wide sound.'
