Anyone have any experience with DPA mics, specifically this little guy (4099)?

Almosts comically expensive, but I'm looking for a better live setup, and I really hate the idea of putting a pickup in one of my ukes, from both a sound standpoint and a drilling one. I'm currently using a removable contact piezo + vox mic for larger (tho still not large) shows, and a single small diaphragm condenser pointed halfway between head & uke for smaller gigs.

I haven't used the model you're considering, but i can tell you that DPA mics are the real deal.
