The DPA 4011C Cardioid Microphone is a coveted favorite among industry professionals, and a viable solution for capturing vocals, close miking instruments, amplifier cabinets and other sources in live sound reinforcement and crucial recording applications alike. The 4011C features a cardioid condenser element noted for minimizing off-axis noise in spot-miking applications.

Closely position the 4011C to speaker cabinets, percussion instruments and other instruments while effectively maintaining a linear tonal response. A switchable 20dB pad provides added headroom and minimizes distortion while capturing transient signals. The 4011C's output stage provides faithful recreations of the original source material.

      Comments about DPA Microphones 4011C Cardioid Microphone (Compact):

      Now I say good riddance to the 402xx series. These guys are fully shielded and really not much bigger either. (get the dpa cable for them) I love the switchable caps to... DPA has really "upped" their game !!
