DPA 4099 CORE Trumpet Microphone

The DPA CORE 4099 Trumpet Microphone is the next evolution in super-cardioid clip on microphones for trumpet and brass instruments. Everything about the 4099 has been designed to give you the most natural sound for your live performances.

The DPA CORE 4099 Trumpet Microphone also performs very well in studio situations. With extremely low self noise, its discrete size and easy adjustment on the Trumpet allows both musicians and recording engineers more freedom in studio, with excellent results.

The DPA CORE 4099 Trumpet Microphone includes the Extreme SPL 4099 variation, which has a dynamic range of 109dB and can withstand up to 152dB before clipping.

Where To Buy

Product Description

The DPA CORE 4099 Trumpet Microphone is the result of DPA’s extensive research and development into creating the ultimate microphone for live Trumpet performance and recordings. The CORE 4099 contains a highly directional capsule designed for use on stage and live settings where other instruments and monitoring may be in close proximity. Both the pick up pattern of the capsule and the Microphone design ensure maximum isolation of the brass instrument, with low very self-noise and high gain before feedback.

The DPA CORE 4099 Trumpet Microphone kit includes the Extreme SPL 4099 variation, which has a dynamic range of 109dB and can withstand up to 152dB before clipping. The CORE by DPA amplifier technology assists in the production of a very natural sound, both on and off axis, so that even in the unlikely event of spill, there are no unnatural harsh frequencies to deal with.

The mounting system is designed to securely attach the gooseneck microphone to the bell of the Trumpet or brass instrument by way of a rubber clamp which is very simple to fit, move and re-attach when required. The STC4099 clip fits the microphone securely to the rim of the Trumpet and is coated with a special rubber compound to prevent surface damage.

The DPA CORE 4099 Trumpet Microphone comes with a DAD4099-BC XLR adapter which requires 48v phantom power and the Microphone can also be used with a wireless microphone system when coupled with the correct DPA adaptor.
