The Schoeps VA 1 is designed to clamp onto the body of a violin. A leather covering on all points of contact prevents damage to the instrument's surface finish. By attaching near the edge of the violin where the motion of the wood is very slight, damping of the instrument is kept to a minimum.
The capsule or compact microphone recommended is the MK 4V / MK 4 or CCM 4V / CCM 4. The main axis is at the side of the capsule, which should be aimed toward the strings of the violin.
