Ideal for studio and live use, the DPA 4011 capsule is modular allowing its capsule to be interfaced with either the standard preamp (MMP-A), compact preamp (MMP-C) or modular active cable (MMP-E).
With a cardioid polar pattern it is subject to the proximity effect if the mic is closer than 30 cms to the source, making it ideal for vocals and close miking all sorts of acoustic instruments. The off-axis response of the 4011 ensures that any spill from other instruments is uncoloured and, of course attenuated compared with the on-axis levels.
The DPA 4011A handles extreme sound level pressures (158dB before clipping) and has an internal -20dB pad to ensure that your preamp will not clip or distort when recording very loud sound sources. The microphone comes with a tubular clip (UA0961), a foam windshield (UA0896) and it’s own individual calibration chart.
All DPA 4000 series Pencil microphones come with a 5 year warranty.
