DPA 4015 WIDE Cardioid Condenser Microphone
Five year warranty. for grand piano, guitar, marimba and percussion. as a spot mic for groups in a symphony orchestra. as a speech, dubbing or vocal mic. The 4015 wide cardioid microphone is an upgraded version of the original DPA 4015. The wide cardioid polar pattern (also known as hemisphere) is the perfect fill-in between an omni and a more directional microphone. The wide cardioid covers a greater sound angle and is an excellent choice for grand piano, guitar, marimba and percussion or as a spot mic for groups in a symphony orchestra. Likewise it is an excellent speech, dubbing or vocal mic as its enhanced richness on the bass end nicely complements many voices. The 4015 wide has a linear on-axis frequency response from 40 Hz to 20 kHz and is intentionally designed with a soft, high frequency boost to offer a more brilliant sound in close miking applications and a linear response in the diffuse field. It is phantom powered (P48), transformerless and can handle 158 dB SPL peak before clipping occurs. A 20 dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector can be used to attenuate the output of the microphone.
