The DPA d:dicate™ 4011 Recording microphone is at the pinnacle of transparent, clear sound for classical instruments. DPA’s d:dicate™ 4011G Classic Instrument Mic Kit allows you to clip the d:dicate 4011G directly to the instrument. Clip-on instrument mics improve both recording and live sound because by maintaining consistent placement, dynamics gain and frequency response remain constant throughout performance. No matter how the instrument or musician moves, the mic moves with them.
You get 1 x d:dicate™ 4011GS (side-exit) Cardioid Mic with GSM4000 Gooseneck Shock Mount as well as four instrument clips:
- Violin Clip
- Cello Clip
- Double Bass Clip
- Piano Mount (magnetic)
The DPA 4011 Cardioid Capsule
The DPA d:dicate™ 4011 Directional microphone capsule is a first order cardioid mic with perfect frequency linearity 30 cms from the source. With very smooth off-axis characteristics, surrounding sound sources won’t be artificially EQ’d, merely attenuated, maintaining a natural sound. Because it has very low self noise and high dynamic range, the 4011G is perfect for capturing crystal clear sound from dynamic sources. These could be strings or piano, or any instrument you can successfully clip the microphone to.
How the 4011G Classic Instrument Mic works
The 4011G Classic Instrument Mic works by combining three parts: the 4011GS Cardioid Mic with Active Cable (side-exit), the GSM4000 Gooseneck Shock Mount and the Instrument Clip of choice. DPA’s ‘Classic’ kit comes with everything you need to clip the 4011G to strings, piano and percussion, though more clips can be purchased to expand upon its versatility.
