4055 Kick Drum Mic

1 in stock

DPA 4055 condenser kick drum microphone has an open cardioid polar pattern with flat frequency response and ability to handle very high SPLs.

4055 takes the traditional concept of a kick drum mic and turns it on its head – no more pre-tailored sound – now you can take sound design back into your own hands.

Not only does the position inside or outside the kick drum give you different sounds but working with the angles of the microphone just outside the hole will deliver nuances of the drum sound. No matter what sound preference you have, the 4055 captures the true sound of a kick drum, whether it is used in classic, jazz, rock or any other genre.

The 4055 is placed in a large, robust housing and there is wind damping foam just in front of the capsule, behind the grille. A specially-designed shock mount also suspends the capsule inside the housing to avoid vibrations from the stage. The shock mount together with the extra wind damping ensures that the 4055 captures only the source.

It is  easy to position, either inside or outside the drum. The unique asymmetric design makes it quite easy to place the mic through the drum hole without ripping the front resonator skin.

Quick service and reasonable price. Angus was helpful and transparent.20/07/23 Update. I had an issue with some equipment that I purchased from these guys, and true to form, they were supportive and gave me consistent feedback on the progress of my concern. Elliot and Darren were incredibly committed to getting me a satisfactory result. I have recommended Factory Sound to my mates because I actually believe that they will be taken care of.

The only place to buy pro audio gear from. Been coming here for over 20 years, and a lot of the same staff still look after me. Says a lot about their business. The best service, advice and gear every single time. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. No need to worry about pricing, theirs is ALWAYS the best. All the staff go out of their way to help you, and will always get back to you. Cant’ recommend this place enough, 5 stars doesn’t seem like enough.
