For those who've not used a DPA mic before, they're extremely good at accurately capturing the sound that they're presented with. 4091 omni condenser is no exception. With its "uniquely natural and open sound" you can use 4091 for close instrument (up to 144 dB SPL) or room applications, in either studio or stage environments.

Some DPA Blurb:
- excellent for percussion
- natural and open sound
- handles high sound pressure levels with ease

The 144 dB SPL handling means it can meet just about any challenge including miking an electric guitar amp. An excellent microphone for percussion instruments, the 4091 is also an ideal choice for wind and string instruments. Due to their remarkably linear frequency response in the 20 Hz to 20 kHz range, sound system engineers can also use these mics for sound system alignment, testing and tuning.

The rugged and compact design features a 5.4 mm diameter pre-polarized condenser capsule in a tapered body measuring just 12 cm (4.76 in).
