DPA 4012 High Voltage 130V Cardioid Microphone

DPA 4012 High Voltage 130V Cardioid Microphone

DPA 4012 Cardioid Microphone Details

The DPA 4012 Cardioid Microphone is a hi-voltage (130 V) condenser microphone with a linear frequency response from 40 Hz to 20 kHz (±2 dB) and an incredible SPL handling capability of 168 dB SPL peak before clipping occurs.

Type 4012 is acoustically identical with the popular Type 4011-TL, but differs in the powering method which enables the 4012 to handle these extreme sound pressure levels.

The off-axis characteristics of the 4012 Cardioid Microphone are totally linear, a unique quality which has taken a lot of attention to obtain.

So any leakage that occurs from off-axis sound sources is still a faithful reproduction of these sounds, though attenuated according to the true first order cardioid pick-up pattern.

Holder and windscreen are included.

Special Note

The DPA 4012 (as well as 4003, 3503 / 4013 Stereo Kit, 4004, and 4016 microphones) REQUIRE the use of a +130V microphone preamplifier using a 4-Pin XLR! Normal +48V Phantom Power WILL NOT WORK. Please see the Millennia Media HV-3C (2-Channel) and HV-3D (4 or 8 channel) microphone preamplifier systems. +130V operation is offered on these units as an Optional Upgrade and they are a perfect match for these DPA microphones, as a result.
