The DPA Microphones d:vote 4099P Stereo Microphone System for Piano is a piano miking solution that delivers a high level of isolation on stage while providing clean and transparent stereo sound quality with realistic dynamics. The system comes with everything you need including two mics, windscreens and shock mounts, magnet mounts and two XLR adapters. The mics and magnetic mounts afford realistic capture of a piano. Plus, they work for closed lid scenarios as well. The system provides stable and repeatable positioning. The mics can also be positioned at different angles. The mounts will work with magnetic surfaces on other instruments as well.

High gain-before-feedback
Flat frequency response
Compact, discrete size
Excellent phase characteristic

Optional Features

Optional Gooseneck Extension
Standard gooseneck length is 5.5" (140 mm), which can be altered with the optional gooseneck extension unit, adding another 50% to the length, helping to achieve exactly the sweet spot for the instrument
Detachable Cables
The updated 4099 range features detachable cable from gooseneck, so it's more convenient to mount the mic on an instrument before connecting it. Furthermore, the choice of different cable qualities makes it possible to tailor your mic to the specific task, such as choosing the heavy duty 2.2 mm cable for PA/Live gigs or the easier-to-hide, thinner miniature cable for personal mounting on instruments where you don't want the cable weight to interfere with your performance. In case of cable break, service is easy and fast

      Comments about DPA Microphones d:vote 4099P Stereo Microphone System for Piano:

      We have a C3 Yamaha and have tried a number of mics and configurations over the years, and while we have gotten a decent sound, I was never really satisfied... we were always struggling to find a balance between tone, feedback, hammer and pedal noise, etc. We could hear nearby conversations and rustling page turns, even though we kept the lid closed.

      I had been under the impression that the next step up was a Pianoworks unit, which was way out of our price range... so I felt we were stuck with what we had.

      One day, a trusted colleague suggested the DPA rig, and I pulled the trigger. Wow. It arrived, we placed the magnetized mini-boom on the soundboard and fell in love immediately. The word that keeps coming to mind is sparkle, we've never had a sound this rich despite all our finagling over the years. Whether I open the lid full or half stick, the sound is great, the feedback and ambient noise issues went away.

      I have read some reviews about workmanship issues or poor connections, but I found none of that. I highly recommend this mic system.

      Really easy grand piano solution

      Comments about DPA Microphones d:vote 4099P Stereo Microphone System for Piano:

      We are using these almost as pictured to amplify grand piano with a jazz band. We were able to run the show with the piano lid closed which kept out a lot of the drum kit. It sounded a little boxy (like a piano with the lid closed), but it was the best piano with a lid closed sound I have ever gotten. We were able to put a lot of piano in to stage monitors with lots of gain before feedback. The ease of use it the best feature. However, the are not rugged construction and I don't like the Microdot connector. I have had connective issues with microdot, but then again our concert hall is very humid. My solution is to assemble the microphone and store them completely assemble to reduce wear and tear.
