DPA 4015-Transformer Less 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-TL 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-TL 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.
