DPA d:dicate 4011A Cardioid Microphone

The DPA d:dicate 4011A Cardioid Microphone is an upgraded version of the classic DPA 4011 - renowned in recording studios and live applications around the world as an outstanding mic with optimal neutrality, accuracy, and extremely low distortion.  Superb separation between sound sources when used as a spot mic on literally any style of live music.  The 4011A is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic instruments and vocals as it is for spot-miking symphonies. It can handle incredibly high sound levels and includes a 20 dB pad switch.  The sensation of “being there” will always be more intense with the DPA 4011A than with any other cardioid.
