DPA d:dicate™ 4015A Wide Cardioid Mic

The DPA d:dicate 4015A is wide cardioid pick-up condenser mic that delivers the same clear, neutral and honest sound as the DPA 4011A, but is designed to combine the features of both an omni-directional and cardioid mic.

When close miking certain dynamic instruments that produce varying tones from different positions, a cardioid mic can sometimes be too focused to pick up every element. A wide cardioid (hemispheric) mic expands the capsules field of view to encompass a wider pick up angle, but retains the rear rejection and sound separation that omni capsules lack.   

The mic has a linear neutral off axis response and any spill is subtly attenuated and is capable of handling high SPL of up to 159dB without distortion; perfect for use on drum kits and brass.

DPA 4015A Features

  • Low profile – wide pickup area
  • Natural reproduction
  • Directional ambience pickup
  • Exceptional for vocal
