DPA d:vote™ CORE 4099 Drum Mic

The DPA d:vote™ CORE 4099 Drum Microphone is the next evolution in super-cardioid clip on drum microphones Part of DPA's d:vote CORE family of instrument microphones, everything about the 4099 has been designed to give you the most natural sounding drums for your live performances.

Utilising DPA's new CORE amplifier technology, the 4099 Drum mic also performs very well in studio situations. Its discrete size and easy adjustment on the drum kit allows drummers and recording engineers more freedom in studio, with excellent results.

The d:vote CORE 4099 Drum microphone kit includes the Extreme SPL 4099 variation, which has a dynamic range of 109dB and can withstand up to 152dB before clipping.

Product Description

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

The d:vote CORE 4099 Drum microphone kit includes the Extreme SPL 4099 variation, which has a dynamic range of 109dB and can withstand up to 152dB before clipping. The CORE by DPA amplifier technology assists in the production of 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. Read about CORE amplifier technology here.

The mounting system is designed to securely attach the gooseneck microphone to the drum by way of a rubber clamp which is very simple to fit, move 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.
