The capsule 'half' of DPA's Reference 4000 Series 4017B shotgun mic system. With this super cardioid shotgun style capsule, you can combine with any preamplifier in the DPA Reference Standard series, but it works superbly with the MMP-B preamplifier, which includes the filters (high-frequency boost that adds a 4 dB shelf at 8 kHz and a first-order bass roll-off below 120 Hz to minimise handling and wind noise. A permanent third-order high-pass filter at 50 Hz effectively removes unwanted low frequency disturbance from handling and wind noise).
For super-compact applications, choose the MMP-C compact preamp (no filters).
Other capsules in the DPA Reference standard series include: MMC4006 (omni), MMC4011 (cardioid) and MMC4015 (wide cardioid) - or choose the new twin capsule (lower cost) 2000 series - MMC2006 (omni) or MMC2011 (cardioid).
