    DPA d:vote™ CORE 4099 Mic, Loud SPL with Universal Mount

    5 In Stock

    The DPA d:vote™ CORE 4099 for Loud SPL solution is designed to address the unique mounting challenges of slim bodied and unusually shaped instruments. The design of the microphone clip includes a hook-and-loop fastener strap, which allows it to fit instruments of varying sizes and diameters such as the oboe, clarinet, bassoon, recorder and flute. The fastener strap pulls tight to fit the circumference of the instrument, like a wristwatch on your arm. On instruments of a large diameter, additional fastener straps can easily be added to extend the clip’s reach. It is lightweight, unobtrusive and designed to stay out of the way during performances, using a revolutionary 90°-system which provides a wide range of mounting options. By detaching the clip from the gooseneck and re-mounting it turned 90°, the number of mic positions is doubled.
