Small profile - at a mere 64mm, this is about as small as you're going to get. The sound however is anything but small. 4006C can be mounted, hung or concealed to create clean, transparent recordings. It is ideal in theatres, opera and concert halls or places of worship where there is a live audience, and for film applications, both in the studio and on location.

As part of the revamped DPA Reference series of microphones, 4006C uses the same MMC4006 omnidirectional condenser capsule that is used in the longer bodied 4006A microphone. The compact preamplifier (MMP-C) offers slightly less SPL handling (140dB max) than you'll find in 4006A, however in compromised visual environments, this is a mighty microphone.

Supplied with a wide selection of acoustic modification accessories, including nose cone and interchangeable protection grids, allowing the 4006C to be acoustically transformed into seven different microphone versions. By simply changing a grid or mounting an element over the capsule, it is possible to gain several unique frequency responses and directional characteristics from a single mic. Furthermore, these grids and elements will not produce any phase shift, noise or distortion that would otherwise be introduced by an electrical filter.

If you already have the 4006C and want exactly the same performance that has made 4006 famous since it was first produced, grab yourself the MMP-A state-of-the-art preamplifier.
For a lower cost version of this mic, choose the new Twin Diaphragm Capsules of the 2000 series - 2006A or 2006C (compact).

Also available, 4011C (cardioid), 4015C (wide cardioid) and 4017B (shotgun, including filters).
