      • A:

        The "-c" version of the BP896 does not come with a connector. I'm certain the wired version would work, but I'm not sure how well given your application. There are many dependents that would determine this. Overall, I would not recommend it.

        However, I would more-so recommend the ATM350 for use with a violin. As with any condenser microphone, you'll need an external power source to power the microphone itself. If you do not have a phantom power supply, the AT8801 will be recommended.
