DPA MMC4006 Omnidirectional Modular Capsule Details
The MMC4006 capsule is part of the flexible DPA Reference Standard series. The 4006A with the MMP-A preamplifier is a legendary recording classic with natural tone and dynamics, where the 4006C with the MMP-C compact preamplifier provides neutral sonic and visual design for reproducing acoustic environments.

Several tools in one
A wide selection of acoustic modification accessories, including nose cone and interchangeable protection grids, allows the MMC4006 capsule to be acoustically transformed into seven different microphone versions, making it the most multifaceted mic in your collection and a tremendous value.

By simply changing a grid or mounting an element over the capsule, it is possible to gain several unique frequency responses and directional characteristics from a single mic. Furthermore, these grids and elements will not produce any phase shift, noise or distortion that would otherwise be introduced by an electrical filter.
