The DPA 4055 takes the traditional concept of a kick drum mic and turns it on its head, with no more pre-tailored sound. What makes the 4055 stand out from the competition is that it delivers the renowned DPA sound, clarity and linear frequency response, both on-axis and off-axis. Its low frequency response and dynamics are superb and result in a tight, natural, well-defined sound—the best low-end with detailed mids and highs. Its performance allows a professional sound designer to create the exact sound s/he is listening for, regardless of the music genre. For more attack, slide the 4055 into the bass drum and point it directly at the beater. For a super-low-end sound, place the 4055 at the hole, just on the outside of the front head. Here, the level of sub and lows are represented the most.
