The DPA 4099C Instrument Mounted Microphone is a miniature supercardioid, mic that is optimized to easily mount and capture cello in live sound reinforcement applications such as performances, rehearsals, etc.
The included mounting system is meticulously designed for mounting the cello, in order to ensure the best possible fit and audio reinforcement when performing live. The included shockmount, gooseneck and clip minimize vibration noise without marring or scratching the instrument itself.
The microphone features DPA's patented Microdot connection and the included DAD4099 Standard Power Supply accepts 48V phantom power from mixers, amplifiers and other sources. A 6' MicroDot to standard XLR cable is included.
