DPA d:dicate™ 4017B Shotgun Microphone

The DPA d:dicate™ 4017B Shotgun Mic is a powerful and lightweight shotgun microphone solution with groundbreaking design features ensuring great results.

The DPA 4017 mic capsule makes use of their unique Interference Tube Technology and their painstakingly engineered mic diaphragms to give the d:dicate™ 4017B shotgun mic its superior directionality and sound quality.

You can also fit the MMC-4017 capsule onto any of the other d:dicate™ preamps to change its size, weight and overall versatility.

Where to buy

Product Description

The DPA d:dicate™ 4017B Shotgun Mic utilises a modified 4011 cardioid capsule within an interference tube design offering a low noise hyper-cardioid polar pattern. It is very light weight (2.4ozs/68gms) and is ideal for multi tasking, including ENG, fixed sports applications and of course main boom miking.

For greater control the microphone is fitted with a 50Hz high pass filter which can be increased to 120Hz accessed via a ring switch on the barrel of the microphone. A second switch gives a 4dB presence boost at 8Khz. In the design particular attention has been paid to ensuring a smooth off-axis response as well as maintaining the usual DPA sonic linearity on-axis. Capable of handling SPLs up to 152dB, immunity to RF emissions and fitted with adjustable filters, the 4017B is a very versatile super-directional broadcast/film microphone.

The 4017B capsule can be interfaced with any of the d:dicate™ series pre-amps – The C pre-amp, for example, will reduce the length of the mic, but does not include the filters.
