Overview

The DPA 4006A is the flagship microphone in DPA's standard range, having earned its status as a worldwide recording standard whenever an omnidirectional microphone is called for. This popular omni has forged its reputation over more than 25 years by repeatedly exhibiting total transparency in a wide variety of recording situations. Its capacity for incredible detail and depth of sound is simply breathtaking. The definition of its high-frequency characteristics across a wide range of instruments is perfect for most miking environments when an omnidirectional microphone is appropriate.

Renaissance microphone
With the 4006A, engineers, broadcasters and musicians alike can achieve extremely clean, natural and precise reproduction in a variety of applications. Ideal for A-B stereo pairs for symphonic concert hall recordings, the 4006A also excels on vocals and for close-miking instruments like grand piano, guitar, double bass and percussion.

Several tools in one
A selection of acoustic modification accessories, including nose cone and interchangeable protection grids, allows the 4006A to be acoustically transformed into different microphone versions, making it the most multi-faceted mic in your collection and as such, a tremendous value. By simply changing a grid, it is possible to gain several individual 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.

Hard case and mounting clip included.
