DPA d:vote™ CORE 4099 Violin Mic

The DPA d:vote™ CORE 4099 Violin Microphone is a super-cardioid clip on violin or viola mic with adjustable gooseneck, representing the next evolution in instrument microphones. Part of DPA's d:vote CORE family of instrument mics, everything about the 4099 has been designed to give you the expansive natural sound of your violin, whether live or in studio.

Utilising DPA's new CORE amplifier technology, the 4099 violin mic also performs very well in studio situations. With extremely low self noise, its discrete size and easy adjustment on the Trumpet allows both musicians and recording engineers more freedom of movement in studio, with excellent results.

The d:vote CORE 4099 Violin Microphone kit includes the Extreme SPL 4099 variation, which has a dynamic range of 108dB and can withstand up to 142dB before clipping.

Product Description

The d:vote™ CORE 4099 Violin Mic is the result of DPA’s extensive research and development into creating the ultimate microphone for live Violin performance and recordings. The CORE 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 musician’s Violin, with incredibly low self-noise and high gain before feedback.

The d:vote CORE 4099 Violin Microphone kit includes the Loud SPL 4099 variation, which has a dynamic range of 108dB and can withstand up to 142dB before clipping. The CORE by DPA amplifier technology assists in the production of a very transparent sound 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 CORE 4099 mic capsule 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. Its 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 4099 mic for Violin comes with a DAD4099-BC XLR adapter which requires 48v phantom power and features a low cut built-in, but the mic can also be used with a wireless microphone system when coupled with the correct DPA adaptor.
