Where to buy

Product Description

The d:vote™ 4099B Double Bass Mic is the result of DPA’s extensive research and development into creating the ultimate microphone for live double bass (contrabass) performance and recordings. The d:vote 4099 contains a highly directional capsule designed for use in ensembles, pit, stage and orchestral settings where other instruments and monitoring may be in close proximity. The pick up pattern of the capsule ensures maximum isolation of the player’s double bass, with low self-noise and high gain before feedback.

The d:vote 4099B microphone produces 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 double bass by way of a rubber coated clamp which is very simple to fit and re-attach when required.

The 4099B mic for contrabass / double bass comes with a DAD4099 XLR adapter which requires 48v phantom power, but the mic can also be used with a wireless microphone system when coupled with the correct DPA adaptor.
