The DPA Microphones 4006A is a d:dictate series omnidirectional condenser microphone that is designed for use in a multitude of instrument miking applications.

Timeless Transparency
The versatile DPA 4006A is without a doubt the most popular mic in their standard range and has rightly earned its status as a worldwide recording standard.  This highly sought after omni has forged its enviable reputation over the past quarter of a century by repeatedly exhibiting its total transparency in any recording situation, and by picking up incredible detail and depth of sound.  The definition of its high-frequency characteristics across a wide range of instruments is undeniably impressive for the vast majority of miking applications.

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 multifaceted mic in your collection and a tremendous value.  By simply changing a grid, 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.
