This is just the capsule, but what a capsule it is! Combine this capsule with any preamplifier in the DPA Reference Standard series to make yourself a microphone.

Especially good at capturing the wide frequency and dynamic range of an orchestra in full flight - as part of an AB stereo pair, or used as a spot microphone.
