Clip on Mics for Saxophones

I have four saxophones. SATB. I need suggestion on Clip-on mics/setups that will support all four of them. The Soprano is curved like the rest. If type of sax is also important.... 1. Soprano - YANAGISAWA SC992 SC-992 BRONZE 2. Alto - Selmer Mark VI 3. Tenor - Yamaha - Custom "Z" 4. Bari - Conn with low "A" from early 70's. Would prefer suggest on quality vs price. I.E. I want a good setup, but not the major expense. Suggestions? Stuart

      I recommend the AKG C519 for around $250 US. Totally love it, never gotten feedback on it, even when playing directly in front of a massive speaker system. Has a great sound as well.

    shure beta 98h. Plays in any environment (Out doors or stuffy bars with nasty wiring) i use an SLX4 to plug into the PA. Very dependable. I've even used it to record some demos and it worked quite well.

    Clip on mikes are OK but I prefer to use a a stage mike on a goose neck stand. You are more locked in movement but you can change the volume by moving away some to get a lower volume that you could not get directly. I was shown that trick by a studio trumpet play a long time ago. It just broadens the dynamic range.
