DI box for strings?


I'm in college doing a music technology course. One of the criteria is about equipment for live sound. This, obviously, includes DI boxes.

So my question is do you need a DI box, of any kind, for string instruments, more specifically a string quartet? Also, if you could suggest microphones and placements, that'd be great

You might need a DI box if they were electric strings (with pickups) You can either mic the entire quartet with a stereo pair (or mic), use spot mics on each instrement or clip ons. You can even put one mic up and record them that way.
