OVERVIEW

Supercardioid instrument condenser microphone that can handle high SPLs.

The DPA Microphones 4099 CORE Mic, Extreme SPL brings more clarity and details to your music, across the entire dynamic range. Anyone looking for the very highest sound quality should choose CORE—musicians, live sound engineers and anyone else who takes pride in quality audio.

From the piano to guitar; strings to woodwinds; brass to percussion, the 4099 Series sounds equally impressive on them all. This one microphone model can beautifully reinforce an entire orchestra. You can move the mic to another instrument; just make sure you have the right type of clip to mount it correctly. The award-winning 4099 Series gives you a much more natural sound, rejecting unwanted noise and accurately capturing the true voice of your acoustic instrument.

With a max SPL, peak before clipping of 152 dB, the 4099, Extreme SPL was designed for use on drums, percussion instruments and other very loud instruments like, for example, the trumpet. This mic also has a supercardioid polar pattern for high rejection and superior gain-before-feedback. The 4099 also retains a uniform off-axis frequency response to ensure a high-energy, clear live performance.

The 4099 CORE also features an enhanced shock mount design, providing excellent isolation from handling noise and rumble. Detachable cables are available in heavy duty or lightweight versions, depending on the application—both are designed to withstand the rigors of daily use. A versatile, integrated gooseneck extender provides easy and repeatable mounting.

IP58 Certified
All CORE by DPA technology microphones, including the 4099 CORE, are IP58 certified. This durability is achieved through several defense mechanisms:

• Water-repellant nano-coating of the cover and housing
• Hermetic sealing of the sensitive amplifier at the core of the mic
• Dual gold plating of the diaphragm

The CORE 4099 comes with an XLR connector as an adapter. The microphone can easily be connected to a wireless system via an adapter from DPA’s extensive range of wireless adapters.

The mics can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument. The mounting system is designed to never blemish or scratch the finish of your instrument. The flexible design supports a wide variety of mounting and positioning possibilities.

Drums
The 4099 CORE for Extreme SPL perfectly captures the booming sounds of drums and percussion instruments. Users will appreciate how gently this instrument condenser microphone adheres to their prized instrument. The mic can be easily positioned to fit different types of drums. The flexible gooseneck can be positioned at different angles to allow a variety of sound nuances. The mic is elegant, lightweight, unobtrusive and designed to stay out of the way during performances.

Trumpet, trombone and other brass
The 4099 CORE for Extreme SPL is perfect for trumpet, trombone and other brass instruments that can make a lot of sound. You can use it with or without mute. The microphone effortlessly handles even the highest sound pressure levels.
