The 3511ES Stereo Kit from DPA features two compact 4011ES cardioid microphones with active side cables, which have been factory-matched within ±1 dB for frequency response and sensitivity in the microphone's entire frequency bandwidth. The kit can be used to capture audio for close-up applications such as acoustic guitars, grand pianos, overheads, percussion, wind instruments, vocals, spot-miking symphonies, and more.
The 4011ES cardioid microphone can handle very high sound levels. The flat on-axis frequency response delivers a faithful reproduction of the original sound, and the off-axis response is also smooth. Both mics in the pair of 4011ES cardioids have a linear frequency response, and this offers several set-up options such as ORTF and XY configurations.
The 3511ES kit includes two 4011ES mics, a CXO4000 compact XY/ORTF stereo holder, a UA0897 shockmount, an extension for the CXO4000, two foam windscreens, two suspension mounts, two GM1500 gooseneck mounts, two mic clips, and two magnet bases for mic holders. With these accessories, the kit is more flexible and provides further positioning options such as fixing the two 4011ES mics in one mount. The kit can also be used for close-miking and distant mic placement.
