DPA’s d:vote 10-Piece Classical Touring Kit includes ten DPA d:vote 4099 high-sensitivity instrument microphones that are proven to be indispensable for mic’ing classical instruments and used by engineers worldwide in a host of live performance situations.
The d:vote Classical 10 Touring Kit also includes miniature microphone cables and an assortment of clips for attaching the 4099 mics onto a variety of instruments. These include clips for saxophone, trumpet, drums, piano, bass, cello, violin, guitar and two universal clips.
d:vote 4099 Condenser mics have a supercardioid polar pattern, giving them an incredibly uniform off-axis frequency response and attenuation. Add to that the sensitivity and ability to handle high SPL before distortion, these mic’s live up to DPA’s pedigree of breathtaking clarity and richness of sound.
The ten d:vote 4099 instrument mics included in the d:vote Classical Touring 10-Piece Kit require XLR adaptors with belt clips, which are all included in the kit, making it everything you need to mic up classical instrument performances almost anywhere.
