DPA 4011-Transformer Less Cardioid Condenser Microphone
Five year warranty. 20 year anniversary. very low distortion. handles incredibly high sound pressure levels. totally faithful reproduction of the original sound. 4011 has 20 year anniversary and we celebrate it by offering you a free engraving. The 4011-TL cardioid microphone is an upgraded version of the classic DPA 4011 renowned in recording studios all over the world as an exceptional mic. State-of-the-art components have been carefully selected to provide optimal neutrality, accuracy and extremely low distortion. The first order cardioid pick-up pattern gives superb separation between sound sources while spot-miking on every kind of live music. The mic is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals. It can handle incredibly high sound levels and even includes a 20 dB pad switch to attenuate the output of the microphone. 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 pick-up. The feeling of being there will always be more intense with the 4011-TL than with any other cardioid.
