Francesco Penolazzi uses the DYN-UNI-P48 for bowed instruments amplification in  both Live and studio sessions. (up to 50 elements).

"Schertler is definetly a part of the Pro Audio world. Using the Dyn helps you getting the detail of the orchestra a lot of definition. A tip to other sound operators: spend more time during and after applications of the pickup in order to need less time in managing the signal."
