The DPA CORE 4097 Supercardioid Choir Microphone will suit anyone looking for an unobtrusive, versatile and great sounding choir mic, such as live broadcast shows with choir or ensemble vocal performances.
An inconspicuous floor stand solution designed to capture the natural sound of a choir, the 4097 is unlike any Choir Mic available on the market. Each part of the microphone has been specifically crafted and tested to ensure it meets the needs of a wide range of choir situations.
As a supercardioid mic, the 4097 offers a highly-directional pick-up pattern as well as low self-noise and high sensitivity. The 4097 is capable of handling extremely high SPL’s which allows the mic to deliver undistorted natural sound. With a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, these mics sound great no matter how challenging the environment. In addition, singing into the side (off-axis) of the microphone doesn’t make the audio sound worse; it just drops the level of the voice. This allows the engineer to use fewer mics and point the capsules at the last row of singers. The pick-up pattern will attenuate the sounds to the side and produce a natural balance between the nearest (loudest but attenuated) and the furthest (weakest level, but performing to the microphones most sensitive direction).
The 4097 can easily be adapted for wireless solutions. From the end of the 122 cm (84 in) active boom pole with the internal cable run there is a female MicroDot that attaches to the supplied Heavy Duty MicroDot cable and ends at the Floor Base. At the base, the adapter holder simply and inconspicuously stores either a standard MicroDot to XLR adapter (included), or alternatively, a regular wireless transmitter. Any transmitter type that is included in our adapter program can be used. This feature allows for great flexibility on stage when you have multiple choir mics in the same space. When the choir is on stage, you simply place the 4097s in the assigned spots and you’re ready to go!
