The Schoeps VA 5 is designed to clamp onto the bridge of a double bass. A leather covering on all points of contact prevents damage to the instrument's surface finish. By attaching near the edge of the cello where the motion of the wood is very slight, damping of the instrument is kept to a minimum.
Designed for use with CCM 2 or CCM 8 compact microphones.
To protect the microphone against rosin deposits, a thin, dark gray foam cover (B 1) is included.
