Where to buy

Product Description

The d:vote™ 4099D Mic for Drums is the result of DPA’s extensive research and development into creating the ultimate microphone for live drum performance and recordings. The d:vote 4099 contains a highly directional capsule designed for use on stage and live settings where other instruments and monitoring may be in close proximity. The pick up pattern of the capsule ensures maximum isolation of the drums, with low self-noise and high gain before feedback.

The d:vote 4099D 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 horn by way of a rubber coated clamp which is very simple to fit and re-attach when required. The 4099D clip fits the microphone securely to the rim of the drums, allowing for quick and ideal placement of the capsule.

The 4099D mic for drums 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.
