The DPA 4011A cardioid condenser microphone is an upgraded version of our classic 4011, renowned in recording studios and live applications around the world as an exceptional mic.State-of-the-art components have been carefully selected to provide optimal neutrality, accuracy, and extremely low distortion.
- Pure linear cardioid:
The principal appeal of the 4011A is its directional quality and attention to detail: everything sounds like the original.The first-order cardioid pickup pattern provides superb separation between sound sources when used as a spot mic on literally any style of live music, from rock 'n' roll to opera.The 4011A is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals as it is for spot-miking symphonies.It can handle incredibly high sound levels and even includes a 20 dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector to attenuate the output of the microphone.
- Perfectly natural:
A flat on-axis frequency response and excellent phase response deliver a totally faithful reproduction of the original sound.The off-axis response is similarly smooth so that any leakage is an accurate reflection of the original, though attenuated according to the true first-order cardioid pickup pattern.The sensation of "being there" will always be more intense with the DPA 4011A than with any other cardioid.Chosen for its qualities as an all-around performer, the 4011A is a great, clean-sounding colorless mic. The variety of applications is as wide as the imagination of the user.
