The DPA 4099 Instrument Mounted Microphone is a miniature supercardioid, mic that is optimized to easily mount and capture the Trumpet in live sound reinforcement applications such as performances, rehearsals, etc.

This particular version of the 4099 is optimized for capturing Trumpets, Coronets and Fugel Horns. The included mounting system is meticulously designed for mounting to the bells of these instruments, 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.

dpa 4099 T (trpt mic)

Pros: Great sound

Cons: Poor clip design

I've been using clip on mics on my Trumpet for over 30 years and have used all the majors. This mic sounds the best. However, the weak link is the clip. It is held on by tension as it grips the bell. The problem is it keeps loosening and quickly becomes so loose that the mic flops around and even falls off the horn. Also as it loosens, it picks up more and more valve noise. You can squeeze it tight with pliers, but over time it just gets loose again. Not acceptable in a $600 mic! DPA said my clip was defective and sent a new one, which has the same problems. My old AKG mic clip that sells for $20 on Amazon stays tight, is easier to get on/off and doesn't pickup any value noise. Unless you want to try and attach to another clip, or DPA comes out with a new clip, I would have to say avoid this mic.
