The DPA d:vote Rock Touring 10-Piece Kit features ten DPA d:vote 4099 instrument microphones that are proven to be indispensable for mic’ing live acoustic instruments and used by engineers worldwide for artists like Metallica, Paramore, Suede and Sting, to name but a few.
The d:vote rock touring kit also includes 10 heavy-duty cables and an assortment of clips for attaching the 4099 mics onto a variety of instruments. These include clips for saxophone or trumpet, drums, piano, bass, cello, violin, guitar and 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 very high SPL before distortion, these mic’s live up to DPA’s pedigree of breathtaking clarity and richness of sound.
The four d:vote 4099 instrument mics included in the d:vote Rock Touring 10-Piece Kit require XLR adaptors with belt clips, of which 10 are included in the kit, making it everything you need to mic up your band’s instruments on the road.
