DPA d:dicate™ 4011A Cardioid Mic

The DPA d:dicate 4011A is a cardioid condenser mic that performs with accuracy, neutral sound and very low distortion.

The 4011A’s cardioid pick up pattern provides high signal separation when the mic is used on instruments and sound sources, and performs well when close mic’ed on guitar, piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals. For use on drums or other high SPL instruments like trumpet and saxophone, the mic can handle 159dB and also includes a -20dB pad for extra overload protection. The 4011A has a linear and flat frequency response both on and off axis at up to 90 degrees from the source, and the off axis response ensures any spill from other instruments is uncoloured.  

The mic is built around a modular design, meaning the body and the capsule can be swapped out for a different polar pattern or body preamp.
