When it comes to a serious omnidirectional recording mic, look no further. Famous for longer than we care to remember, the go-to mic for strings, full orchestra or ‘just’ as a spot mic, the 4006 has been given a bit of facelift recently.
It’s still comes with it’s own frequency graph that will show just how flat mic is, and it comes with ‘timeless transparency’ – the complete opposite to most of the chunky flavoured large diaphragm studio mics around town. It will pick up incredible detail and depth of sound. The definition of its high-frequency characteristics across a wide range of instruments is undeniably impressive for the vast majority of miking applications. Use it in A-B stereo pairs for symphonic concert hall recordings, the 4006A also excels for close-miking instruments like grand piano, guitar, double bass and percussion. You’ll find a -20dB pad at the base of the 4006A (at the XLR base), offering greater SPL before clipping – 147dB max
