Cardioid Condenser - transparent, ideal for recording and concert hall applicationsOrder Code: 4011A
Just like the re-vamped 4006A, this cardioid condenser has been upgraded as part of DPA's relaunched Reference Standard series microphones - removeable (interchangeable) capsule, and full integration with the whole range. This cardioid version comprises carefully selected state-of-the-art components to provide optimal neutrality, accuracy, and extremely low distortion.
The principal appeal of the 4011A is its directional quality and attention to detail: everything sounds like the original. The first-order cardioid pickup pattern provides superb separation between sound sources when used as a spot mic on literally any style of live music, from rock 'n' roll to opera. The 4011A is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals as it is for spot-miking symphonies. It can handle incredibly high sound levels and even includes a 20 dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector to attenuate the output of the microphone.
For a more low-profile version, choose 4011C - which uses the same MMC4011 capsule, but a compact preamplifier, MMP-C.
Also available, 4006A (omnidirectional), 4015A (wide cardioid) and 4017B (shotgun, including filters).
